  1. Weekly Engagement Report - Admin Log

    It would be nice if there was a screen where staff could check to see if teachers have run their Weekly Engagement Report like there is a screen to see if they have certified their Instructional Minutes. This wouldn't verify accuracy of the report, but at least office staff could confirm if the teachers had at least run the report and the date/time of the last time it was run.

  3. Bell Schedule - Copy to Multiple Days

    It would be helpful in some situations, such as when schools may fluctuate between schedules due to the pandemic, to be able to quickly copy a single bell schedule to multiple days at once instead of having to set the schedule one day at a time. Being able to multi-select days by either control-click, checkbox, or some kind of "copy to all subsequent regular days of same name" (so all following mondays, or tuesdays, etc as the currently selected day) would be great.

    Thank you!

  4. Student Attendance Report - Make it a PDF - Currently is Quick Print only

    The attendance report that is printed from the Student Attendance page is a Quick Print, and is not easily saved as a PDF. Would like to be able to electronically store and send attendance without having to print and scan. Making this a regular report that can go to PDF as a download option would be great.

  5. I wish that I could click a student's icon on the take attendance screen, then click the back button and return to the SAME class period.

    Here is my typical workflow: I'm finished taking attendance for 1st period and I want to check attendance totals for each student who was absent. I click the attendance icon next to their name, review the information, then click the Back button in the browser to return to the class list. However, this returns me to the currently scheduled period and not the period I was just viewing (frequently sixth period after the end of the instructional day). This makes it super painful to go through a list of students and review each ones profile or attendance info. I have…

  6. Missing Attendance - Add Different time stamps for Attendance Submission

    Our elementary schools are set up with AM and PM sessions. Each teacher has two teacher records, one for AM and one for PM. When taking attendance, both sessions are time-stamped with the same AM time-stamp. For security issues, our office staff needs to know when the teacher has taken attendance for the PM session.

  7. Improve Functionality of Teacher Attendance Mass Apply

    Here are three changes that would improve the usability of the new Mass Apply feature for attendance:

    1) Having the menu hidden by default is a nuisance for a teacher who has to use it 7 times a day. There should be an option to have the filter open by default. Perhaps a checkbox?
    2) The filter should remember the last setting used. For example if a teacher is filtering for a specific cohort that corresponds with a day the week, they would only have to set the filter up once at the start of the day instead of 7…

  10. Set "Mass Apply Attendance" Default Filters

    Now that teachers can set filters for mass applying attendance codes and notes, they would like to set their own default filters that way they don't have to reapply the filter every morning.

  11. Attendance Notes - Allow Uploading Documents

    We have the ability to add notes to attendance, it would be helpful to add an upload feature for Dr notes and such. We are currently having our parents email us pictures of documents instead of handling paper. The system is working well with our parents, it would be great if we could then attach the picture directly to the Notes in attendance.

  13. Attendance Enrollment Page - Do not prompt to delete attendance during a 440 program change entry

    In the Attendance Enrollment, if a user enters an "L" (leave) record using the "440 - program change" reason Aeries may prompt about "student has attendance after this date."

    Since this is simply a program change entry and NOT really a withdrawal action, there is no reason to remove the ATT records. The user is expected (required) to follow a 440 entry with an "E" (enter) record for the subsequent day [or they get the error/warning "Student does not have an Attendance Enter after a 440 Leave on [date]"

    We have had users click Yes to the prompt more than…

  15. Mass Change ATT Codes/Mass Change All Day Codes

    Now that there's an option to auto-populate the all-day code based on period codes, the mass change programs need an option to not skip ATT records for which an all-day code already exists. This is critical when the all-day code is auto-populated to A, then can't be changed to U after the period absences have all been to U.

  16. New Report with Attendance Information Compared to Other Students

    Our district is interested in being able to share information with our students' parents/guardians about not only their respective child's data, but how it compares with students in the same grade level, at the same school, and across the school district as a whole.

  17. Filter Attendance Notes (view option)

    Now that teachers enter engagement notes for every period, the data is getting hard to read. It would be helpful to be able to select certain attendance code notes to see or skip when viewing for a student when selecting View all notes without having to print the report and/or scan multiple pages.

  18. Instructional Minutes Certification Log - Output to Excel and Sort by Teacher

    Allow printing to excel or group by teacher number/name option for weekly instructional minutes certifications submission log. Since the report runs by section it requires copy/paste from browser to excel to sort and identify teachers who need to submit. It would be helpful if we could run it with a sort "by teacher" option and be able to print to excel.

  20. Provide Visual Feedback when Entering Attendance and No Response is Received from the Server

    With many staff and teachers working remotely with varying internet providers and networking equipment, it is not uncommon for a staff member or teacher's internet to lose connection for a few moments.

    When entering attendance, if the internet connection is lost it may go unnoticed leaving blank records on your attendance page. The current visual feedback is small in the upper-right hand corner but shows nothing if there is no response from the server. When entering several records it could easily go unnoticed if one or more of the records were not received by the server due to several notices…
