The new version will be available this weekend 13th/14th June and fixes duplicate Progress Sheet issue, as well as major improvements to support for new PassRight app for pupils. Make sure you have saved your Progress data in the correct sheet before upgrading.
As you may be aware, when adding a lesson, the app takes you automatically to the Progress sheet, in order to help keep your pupils updated via the PassRight app. Unfortunately, due to a bug in the first version, users with their own customised syllabus, using the Progress Track Syllabus feature, found that the automatically appearing progress sheet was not the correct one, however if you accessed Progress from Pupil Management directly, the correct progress sheet was displayed.
In order to rectify this, in Release 3.2.0, launching this weekend, we have removed the incorrect Progress sheet, and the automatically displayed sheet is the same as the one accessed directly.
If you use your own customised syllabus and use Progress Track Syllabus set to ON, please make sure your pupil progress data is correctly stored in the direct access Progress sheet, from the button underneath the pupil details in Pupil Management. We doubt many users would have used it, but the incorrect progress sheet will be deleted.
Other improvements in Release 3.2.0 have seen a complete re-write of the way the iPad app communicates with your pupils on PassRight, and has resolved any communication issues between the two. PassRight is being updated as well, and all of our testing so far has shown that it now works brilliantly!
Finally, some of our app users had an issue downloading the last release, 3.1.0 and found that it did not install correctly. This seems to have been an installation issue, in most cases caused by a poor broadband connection, and most of the users who experienced issues were either in a poor broadband area, or reported that the update took a long while to download.
If you are in a slower broadband area (and bearing in mind that with all of the diagrams, this is now a particularly large app), you may find it better to turn off the automatic app update feature introduced in iOS 7, and manually update the app when you know you have a good broadband & WiFi connection.
As always, make sure you have an up to date iCloud backup before upgrading the app, and as a further precaution, we always recommend you Export Pupil Data (from the app’s Settings area) as well.
If you get any problems with the app update, don’t Delete the app from the iPad (as this will also delete all of your personal diagrams & pupil details) but contact us for help. You can wipe your iPad and restore it entirely from the iCloud backup, and this will resolve most app download issues, giving the app another chance to install from the App Store.
