Tabula 55 (Caesium) - Thursday 9th January 2014

Tabula version 55 (Caesium) was released on Thursday 9th January 2014. The main visible improvements and changes are:

Uploading missed monitoring points to SITS:eVision

It's now possible to upload missed monitoring points that have been recorded in Tabula to SITS:eVision as part of the attendance monitoring points reporting process. This means that it won't be necessary to re-input missed points directly into SITS:eVision.

General improvements and fixes

  • We've worked hard to improve the performance of many areas of Tabula so a lot of pages should now load quicker, notably the homepages for Coursework Management and Small Group Teaching, and the submissions and feedback page in Coursework Management
  • There's now a type of 'Lecture' for small group sets, and you can optionally turn off collecting attendance for a set of small groups (where it isn't relevant)
  • We've added additional filters for "Submitted" and "Submitted late" to the Coursework Management submissions screen
  • Unsubmitted assignments no longer erroneously display as late
