Aeries Revision Notes 8/17/2018

Aeries CommunicationsDue to changes in browser security settings it is now necessary to move Aeries Communications outside an "iframe" from within Aeries to open into a new Browser Tab. This will take users to "" in their browser, keeping regular Aeries in the   original Browser Tab.
Import Fees to Financial TransactionsThis new page can be used by districts transitioning from using the FEE table to using the Aeries Financials tables.
Excel ReportsReports that are created in Excel format will now use the XLSX format instead of XLS. This should provide greater compatibility for opening the file in a variety of applications including Google Sheets and resolve a few minor bugs.
Query to ExcelSince the 7/27 update, users would see a "Number stored as text" error in cells containing numeric values, fixed. Also, under rare conditions, some rows were duplicated in the Excel file, fixed.
Academic PlanIn cases where the school does not have any course request packets, the academic plan will display the appropriate message and disable the adding courses by course request packet.
