New Year Rollover from traditional to Flex not updating the Scheduling Status and Use Section Staff in SMS flag

We are aware of an issue with the New Year Rollover process for schools who are scheduling for next year using Flex Scheduling. After the New Year Rollover, the Scheduling Setup is not switching to the "Scheduling students into Classes for the current school year" option which would trigger the system to use the values in the School Options page. Also the OPT value for SCHEDUSESTAFFINSMS is not getting triggered to be "true". As a result, the SMS page is not displaying the Flex Period and Class Calendar fields. The data is not impacted. The workaround to display the values correctly in the SMS would be the following:


Workaround in the new year:

  1. Set the Scheduling Status in Scheduling Setup Options to Scheduling students into Classes for the current school year. 
  2. Uncheck the Use Staff-Section Association check box and re-check. This will flag the OPT value and set it to 'true'.
  3. Logout and delete your cache. Log back in. The Flex Periods and Class Calendar will now display in the Scheduling Master Schedule (SMS) page.

Any idea how long for the fix for this is?

At this time I do not have an ETA on when it will be fixed. It is currently scheduled for programming. I will update this known issue once a fix is released.  The workaround above will allow for a quick resolution. If you have any issues with the workaround, feel free to create a support ticket.
