Resolved Issues


Release Note
Custom fields created using Easy Edit display HTML codeDetected an issue where users could not use Easy Edit to insert custom fields as expected. The document would display HTML codes in the published version. This is now fixed; users can add custom fields using Easy Edit, and the fields no longer display HTML codes.
Digital Signature Sign Now function issueDetected an issue where the staff could not use the "Sign Now" feature if the parent's name contained an accent mark. This is now fixed; staff members can use the feature even if Parent's name has an accent mark.
Optimized Import Layout "eSchoolPLUS- Student Enrollment Import"Optimized the code handling Student Enrollment Import from eSchoolPLUS to avoid time-out errors.
Non-lookup fields using auto-refresher functionalityAdded a fix for a reference auto-refresher enabled fields to reload the page only when the user changes the field value, not when switching between lookup and non-lookup modes.
Staff attempting to sign a completed documentWhen a user tries to sign a document that has been completed (someone accepted the signatures before they signed), they will see a popup that reads "Inactive Signature Request This student's signature request is not active. Contact your district administrator for more information."
