Bug Fixes

  • AdHoc: Output of UDF Answers from Single Item from a list was outputting blank if it was not in code,description format. Now fixed.
  • eApply: If multiple applicants filled in the form at the same time, there was a chance that the status of the new applicants would not be correct. Now fixed.
  • eFileStore: When upgrading to a new version of eFileStore, any changes to the maximum allowed file size in the eFileStoreService.exe.config file would be lost. The default maximum file size in that file has now been increased to the maximum available (500MB).
  • eFileStore: After installing a new version of eFileStore, file access for Sandbox datasets would show the error “not a valid Dataset GUID”. Now fixed.
  • Imports and Exports: ILR Imports could give a range check error if there was Learner HE data to import. Now fixed.
  • PICS Main: The Apprenticeship Financial summary button was not calculating the employer contributions accurately when ACT 2 had been set. Now fixed.
  • PICS Main: Optimised an activity query which can cause PICS to freeze whilst creating a PRaP customer record.
  • Reporting: The Course Manager Attendance report was not including learners enrolled on a course if their ILR dates were outside of the course’s dates. Now fixed.
  • Reporting: When running the E&T or Traineeship Achievement Rates reports with Maximum Possible rates turned on, the breakdown could show the wrong number of learners in the “Max Timely Achv” column. This did not affect the totals. Now fixed.
