Aeries Revision Notes 10/22/2018

Classes and Course AttendanceNew Grade Reporting records can now be created directly from a student's class schedule.  The process offers the teacher or office staff member the option to load the grade from the gradebook and various GRD fields are available for editing before saving the record.  This option is only available to schools where the new School Option to "Allow Issue Credit on Classes / Course Attendance pages" is enabled.
Grades Individual GRD records can now be pushed to a student's Transcript from the Grades page.  This process also links the new HIS record with the originating GRD record's marking period so that if the process is run again, the existing, linked HIS record will be updated and not have a duplicate HIS record created.
Copy Grades to TranscriptsA new option to "Overwrite if HIS records exist?" has been added to this function. If unchecked, the process will skip existing records.
School OptionsA new option for each school to "Allow Issue Credit on Classes / Course Attendance pages" has been added.
