Tabula 61 (Promethium) - Thursday 20th February 2014

Tabula version 61 (Promethium) was released on Thursday 20th February 2014. The main visible improvements and changes are:

Scheduled meeting records

It's now possible for students to schedule meetings with their personal tutor or research supervisor in Tabula, and vice-versa, as well as recording the outcomes of that meeting there. This means that it's now possible to agree on an agenda for a meeting, or provide documentation to be discussed or agreed at that meeting. We are working to integrate this functionality better with Outlook and Office365.

Timetables on student profiles

A student's personal lecture timetable (PLTT) is now available on their student profile to both the student and any relevant staff in their department. This timetable also shows any small group teaching events that have been scheduled in Tabula.

We are interested in hearing from any departments who have information in another system that they believe should be included in the student timetable. Please contact tabula at warwick dot ac dot uk if you would like to discuss this further.

Tier 4 visa requirements on student profiles

Where a student's nationality requires a tier 4 visa, this is now displayed on their student profile. We also allow filtering by this property when we display lists of students.

Recording types of authorised absence

In addition to adding a note when recording attendance for a student, we also allow categorising of student absences (academic, medical, personal, change of study location or other) to allow for reporting later. Please note that selecting "change of study location" does not replace the current process of contacting the academic office to inform them of a change of study location, where it is necessary to do so.

General improvements and fixes

  • We now show a link next to student names that provides a view of information from their student profile when clicked
  • We're continuing to review and improve performance on some pages, including viewing attendance by tutor or supervisor
  • Lateness for assignment submissions is now expressed in working days, as per University regulations
  • A bug that made it difficult to click tutee data on an iPad has been fixed
  • A bug that occurred when recording monitoring point information for tutees has been fixed
  • Permanently withdrawn students will no longer appear in assessment groups linked from SITS
  • A bug that meant filtered views of attendance students appeared to "hang" has been fixed
  • Attendance notes now work correctly in Small Group Teaching
