2019/2020 Product Updates Roundup 22 - Group MIS API and preparing for the new year

The Headlines

Easily delete timetable slots

When you delete lessons from the Timetable Slots page this now happens in the background. This means you can select all the slots on the page and delete them all at once - no more timing out or having to delete them in batches! You’ll also get a notification when it’s finished!

Group API connections

You can now connect with third-party applications such as Inventry, Wonde and Groupcall through the Group MIS to easily access data on Group staff. Just ask the app's company to send a request, then approve it from Administration > Partner Apps (API Users) using the instructions here.

  • The Summative Tracking Overview Dashboard now calculates based on the grade set used in the rule rather than the default.
