Bug Fixes

  • Claims and Profiles: The Funding Calculator would include FM25 Traineeships that were recorded on episodes with an “EFA” Funding Organisation but with a Source Of Funding of “105” when run in “SFA” (Employer Responsive) mode. This would result in duplicate claim items being generated for these learners when subsequent runs of the Funding Calculator were performed. These learners are now calculated via the “EFA” (Learner Responsive) calculator. FM25 Traineeship episodes recorded with an “SFA” Funding Organisation with a Source Of Funding of “105” will continue to be calculated via the “SFA” (Employer Responsive) calculator.
  • Claims and Profiles: The FM36 Reconciler’s Missing PMR feature would sometimes link the missing PMRs to the wrong episode in PICS if there are more than one episode. Now fixed.
  • eAssessor: The Activities list in eAssessor is now sorted by Due date by default.
  • Imports and Exports: The XML ILR Importer, and PelControl ILR Importer would exclude aims from a programme if the first LearningDelivery for a Learner in the ILR had an FundModel of 99. Now fixed.
  • Imports and Exports: When reading a 2019 FIS error notification report (including during FIS validation when saving an ILR file), PICS would report that there were no errors if a single error was reported in the FIS report. Now fixed.
  • Imports and Exports: When running 2019 FIS validation from the ILR exporter and FIS version 1.0.3, the message “An error occurred when importing the ILR file into the FIS” would be shown. Now fixed.
  • PICS Main: When re-instating suspended FM36 Apprenticeships via dated changes the Funding Adjustment for Prior Learning is now set for only valid Maths and English aims. ACT records are also now created with a blank Applies To date.
  • Surveys and eSurveys: There was an issue where logging out of eSurveys would silently log errors to the windows event log. Now fixed.
