import xls sections into ST 2.1.1 not linking terms

Asked by xris_xcess on 2014-03-31

Hi,

I have a production server running 12.04 and ST 2.1.1 from the ppa.

I have been trying to get my xls file all ready so that I don't have to navigate around the web gui settings several leves worth of sections, but have discovered that the imported sections from the xls don't link terms up.

ie, if if I have a art-101 section that is going to be taught in 3 terms, I have my sheets for 1st, 2nd and 3rd term sections, with the same name and id, but after importing they are not linked as 1st, 2nd and 3rd term consecutive.

Is there a way to import them so they link? or is it a limitation in this version?

I see that the version 2.6 of ST uses an integrated sheet for sections that includes previous and next terms, but I wont be upgrading the server yet to make use of this.

Also, is there a way to get ST 2.6 running on 12.04?

You can switch to the "dev" PPA for 12.04 to get 2.6.

See http://book.schooltool.org/release-notes.html

and

http://book.schooltool.org/install-2_0.html#schooltool-ppa

The fact that it is in the "dev" PPA doesn't have any significance regarding its stability. We just need to update how we've got the PPA's named.

Excelent!!!

I will switch and try it out.

This is going to be a great time saver (and smoother upgrade/merge when server is updated too).

Thanks.
