Tabula 64 (Gadolinium) - Tuesday 25th March 2014

Tabula version 64 (Gadolinium) was released on Tuesday 25th March 2014. The main visible improvements and changes are:

Coursework submission monitoring points

It's now possible to link monitoring points to automatically be met when a set number of pieces of coursework have been submitted.

Previous year's information in student profiles

We've added previous year's information to tabs in student profiles. Some information is not currently imported for previous years, but we are planning on filling this in future.

General improvements and fixes

  • We've fixed a broken link in extension request emails
  • We've made it easier to set up multiple small group teaching events
  • We've fixed a bug where the person recording a monitoring point is overwritten when another user doesn't change the data
  • We've added the new feedback due date to the extensions page
