The student’s name appears on the home page when a parent or guardian signs in to the parent portal.

Standard Reports

When setting up report parameters for a standard report, it is now possible to specify default values for non-optional report parameters.  The default values are specified in the form of a Globals profile expression.  This is useful, for example, when needing to set default values for date parameters based on key dates stored in the Globals profile or the current date.
