$7 Interface Simplification

Issue #824 resolved
Emil Reisser-Weston created an issue

A review of programme use over a number of sites has shown that a lot of functionality around the core offering is simply not used. To this end we need to make changes to the programme to improve the design.

Make Meetings Optional

Can we add an isMeetings option to the System Setup > Defaults > Configuration options and make default to false (users can opt to activate this or turn it back on if they wish.)

Having this as false will remove it from the toolbar of Coach/Trainer


and Quality Assurer


You also need to remove this option from the Manager/QA ...


and from learner ...


Manage Bookings

It looks like this Classroom functionality is also little used. Again we should default this option to be off in System Setup > Defaults > Configuration but can turn if on if needed.

If Off then can we remove this option from Admin and Coach/Trainer


and this option from Resources


Pending Assessments & Skill Scans

These will be used like crazy by some clients but ignored by others. Can we add a routine that will search for content in both and remove these menu items if there is nothing contained therein (as shown).


Such changes needed for all versions (SMCR/OpenElms/Apprentix) of Coach/Trainers (Pending Assessments and Skill Scans) and Quality Assessors (skill scan only)

    I will do one time check when applying these updates, if there is no assessment/skill scan records in database, set "Pending Assessments" & "Skill Scan" configuration option to False.

    It should add these back in if a skill scan or assessment are added though. Else the user would start tyem but never see the results.

  3. Lauris Mikulans

    "Skill Scan" menu item will be enabled when there will be active resource with Skill Scan functionality.
    "Pending Assessment" menu item will have same logic.

    • changed status to open

    I reopened as I noticed with isSMCR and meetings as false (on Simmons site)


    The ability to add meetings was still here (from manager view)
