What is it? When going through Planbook, particularly when the mode is set to “done” or “grade”, one can unintentionally update a different lesson. The UNDO feature resets the lesson to the values before the change occurred.
How it works. Open the Planbook. Make changes in any mode (edit, done, or grade) and click “save” (for “edit” mode only). The notification bar at the top of the screen will now display an “UNDO” button and countdown timer. Click the “UNDO” button before the timer ends to reset that lesson plan to the way it was before the save occurred.
What is this for? While Planbook speeds up grading lessons, one might also adjust a lesson they did not mean to. This UNDO feature allows a member to reset the lesson.
NOTE: If timer runs out, you can still “undo” your changes by going into the lesson directly. This option is always available.
Copy Lesson Plans: Duplicate Dates a.k.a. Twin Copy
What is it? Copy Lesson Plans now has option to copy the EXACT dates as the “copy from” lessons.
How it works. On the Copy Lessons, Step 2, you can now select between Set NEW Dates and Copy EXACT Dates. The Set NEW Dates is the default selection and generates new dates based on your class/term/copy options.
The new Copy EXACT Dates will copy each “Copy From” lesson’s date and sequence order without any changes.
What is this for? Many members utilize the same lesson plans for multiple children during the year. Previously, if date adjustments were made to one student and then copied, those adjustments might be lost. With the Copy EXACT Dates option, those dates and sequence orders are preserved.
Create-A-Plan: Edit Lesson Name Pattern
What is it? When entering multiple Lesson Name Patterns, you can edit a previously entered one.
How it works. Just select the textbox and overwrite your previous value.
What is this for? Previously, if a mistake was made during entry, the entire pattern series might have had to be re-typed. This feature allows you to make adjustments to previously entered values without having to re-type the entire pattern set.
In every software system in the world, the need to make tweaks will always exist. Since some of you may have encountered these “un-documented features” (e.g. bugs), here is a list of items corrected.
