Aeries Revision Notes 8/25/2017

Page Comment
Report Tagging (Query Tags from the Aeries Client) The Query Tags feature from the Aeries Client, now called Report Tags in Aeries Web, has been added to a number of reports in the system. Querying STU.QT can now be performed after these reports are run. Additionally, "Report Tags" from multiple reports are now accessible by Querying STU with the new RTG table. These reports display the Report Tags each of them use for use in Query afterward. Here is a list of the reports supporting this new feature: Students With N or More Discipline Demerits, Avery 5160 Labels 1 Per Family, Avery 5160 Labels For Birthdays By Teacher, Students With Unverified Period Absences, Students With Unverified Absences, Students With Perfect Attendance, Information Confirmation Status, Student Immunization Status, Students With N Or More Course Requests, Students With N Or More Absences, Students Without Student Or Parent Email Addresses, Physical Fitness Status Summary, and Students Without Portal Accounts.

School Options A new option has been added to disable the ability for parents and students to create their own portal accounts. Options have also been added to disable the ability for students and/or parents to change their passwords. This is useful when student passwords are externally managed and pushed into Aeries. Also, the Mobile App Settings section has been adjusted to support the upcoming Aeries Mobile Portal App. Also, the Aeries EM2 public URL setting is now updateable.
CALPADS Extracts CALPADS codes in Aeries have been updated per the Code Set v.9.1 from August 10, 2017. This includes the new State Course Codes for this school year. Also, schools using alternate education scheduling were not being included in the SCSC, CRSC and SDEM extracts, fixed.
Aeries App for Parents and Students Changes have been made to support the upcoming Aeries Mobile Portal App.
Walk-In Scheduler For students with existing classes, the walk-in scheduler was only rescheduling students into sections with the same teacher, fixed.
User Passwords 25 of the most widely used passwords across the Internet have all been banned from being used in Aeries. Upon login, if the system detects one of these passwords, the user will be prompted to immediately change it. Also, users will no longer be able to change from one forced change password to another (i.e. "welcome" to "changeme"). Also "admin" is now never allowed as a password for any account. Newly banned passwords include: 123456, 123456789, qwerty, 12345678, 111111, 1234567890, 1234567, password, 123123, 987654321, qwertyuiop, mynoob, 123321, 666666, 18atcskd2w, 7777777, 1q2w3e4r, 654321, 555555, 3rjs1la7qe, google, 1q2w3e4r5t, 123qwe, zxcvbnm, 1q2w3e.

Google Integration Adding students to a Google Classroom class when Aeries is not also configured for directory sync to Google was not working in some situations, fixed. Also, to increase system performance, Google API calls have been further reduced in some areas.
Teachers page Support has been added for all grades when moving students from one specific grade level. The input box was replaced with a dropdown list of available grades.
EADMS / IO References to "EADMS" have been change to "IO Education assessments" throughout the system as they have changed their branding.

Parent Portal Translations When using the browser to translate Aeries instead of the Parent/Student Portal Login option, "StuNum" was being translated incorrectly by Google/Chrome and possibly others. "StuNum has been replaced with "Stu #" to avoid this issue.
System Cleanup Some confirmation popups were appearing behind open popups, fixed. Also, when expanding a drop down, the system now checks for the edges of screen and avoids having the drop downs go over the edge, making it easier to see drop down options.
Security Users Drop downs on this page have been visually adjusted so that options do not appear "duplicated".
Import Test Results Blue header on top of page standardized and given the title "Options"
Attendance Alternating rows have been given a slight striping to better distinguish one row from another. Visual alignment adjustments have also been made and mouse hover states given to inputs.
Student Profile Printing of the profile has been adjusted to show all the content and handle multiple pages.
GATE Read-only users could not use this page effectively, fixed.
Attendance Dashboard This page is no longer available at the District level to avoid confusion.
Students with N or More Absences report Inputs on this options page have been widened and visual updates have been made for consistency.
Parent Data Confirmation Emails notifying staff of changes had the potential to display translated code values rather than English, fixed.
API Security Certificates were not being generated for new entries since the 8.11 version, fixed.
Rollover The rollover process was rolling forward the Supplemental Attendance Data tables (ATA and ATD) since the 7/14 update, fixed.
Grades and Student Grades Read-only users were able to see the "Recompute" button, fixed.
Old UI - CALPADS Extracts CALPADS codes in Aeries have been updated per the Code Set v.9.1 from August 10, 2017. This includes the new State Course Codes for this school year. Also, schools using alternate education scheduling were not being included in the SCSC, CRSC and SDEM extracts, fixed.

Does anyone know where we can disable parents and students from creating portal accounts? I see it on the School Options District Page but when I click to "Change" it there is no toggle. Thanks.

Stephen, certain settings are not available to districts in our hosted environment.  Create a ticket requesting this new option be enabled and our staff will take care of it for you.
