Highlights Release Notes - December 09, 2015 Follow

Improvements

Highlights supports school-specific Administrators for multi-school customers

Highlights now supports school-specific Administrators for multi-school customers. So Highlights now mirrors the existing Teacher Dashboard security rules for Administrators.

Highlights supports single-school extended teacher access

Highlights now obeys (in single school domains) an existing preference that gives teachers access to classes other than the ones they teach. So Highlights now mirrors the existing Teacher Dashboard security rules.

Removed the option to apply Highlights to a list of classes

The TDAdmin Highlights page allowed Administrators to restrict the Highlights to a specified list of classes. This was intended for use with new customers to allow a gradual rollout. It was mis-interpreted by existing Interact sites as a way, during a transition period, to turn Highlights on for a specified list of classes while retaining Interact for the bulk of classes. When used in this way, Dashboard and Highlights did not act as expected.

On reflection, this feature has limited usefulness. So the ability for Administrators to restrict Highlights availability to a specified list of classes has been removed. This simplifies the set-up process and avoids confusion
