  1. Hi @Graham Quince. The system seems to be working OK, just ironing out a few issue with using a wall to collect the information, lots of staff are not ticking the "show to others" checkbox, which is giving some consternation. In the latest template I'm trying to disable that feature. The biggest problem I'm having is that line managers are completing the "Appraisal Sign Off" form for their staff. Which means that they are filling in their own sign off. Despite instructions not to. What would be useful would be a bit of HTML that either set the form to read only, or didn't display it at al

    Parent Letters

    Our parents (and students) always complain that the password reset function doesn't work. It maybe that we haven't set it up correctly. But it appears to be ringing a bell somewhere in the ethernet darkness. 🙂

    Parent Letters

    This is the first time I'm generating the parental login letters. We have all the parents in Frog from the SiMs extractor. But I can't find a way of getting the information out that links the student to the parent, so I can print a mailshot to send home with login information. Is there any documentation on this?
  4. When I go to package manager it says I don't have any updates. Although it doesn't look like the described latest version.
  5. Is there any way of clearing the data? So that we can start afresh from Monday?

    Why do I feel so stupid ðŸĪŠ

    Page Template

    I'd thought of that, but can't see how you duplicate the page. It's probably very simple, but I can't find that option when I create a new page.

    Page Template

    Hi, is there any way of creating a "Page Template"? It's really annoying and time consuming to have to start from scratch each time I create a new page, which contains the same widgets (Text boxes, links, Tables etc.). Also, is it possible to copy a page from one site to another. Again, it's a bit time consuming re-creating something that has already been done. I have a member of staff making a mahoosive CPD site and he's getting quite irritated at not being able to copy and paste even the simplest widget.
  9. Not a problem, I can just keep a separate file and use the site log widget, that'll work nicely.
  10. Can I collect the names of students who have accepted the acceptable use policy. Or do I just assume that if they've logged in then they have signed it?
  11. @Graham Quince "Having said that, your idea might be possible using the current widgets." 😀 " The User Selector field in a form will allow you to email the individual selected (the line manager). " - I think you mean the user is entering that they have completed creating the appraisal targets (at the beginning of the process) and they select their line manager using the user picker?? (I was envisioning the other way round as the line manager has to to the signing off- but it might work) "he Form can be set to Single Submission in the advanced settings and allow the user to edit thei
  12. @Graham Quince Thanks for sorting our ghost portfolios, all looking fine now. Hi. Been playing with our system again, so have a couple more questions. Is it possible to get to the data in a form using API's? My thinking is that I'd really like a central form to collect, firstly the line manager signing off the appraisal targets at the beginning of the year, then a second signing off part way through the year to say they had been revisited and the staff member had reviewed/commented on their targets, then finally at the end of the appraisal period to say whether each target had been f

    Editing Tables

    @Graham Quince While I've got you. Is there a site theme similar to "Basic Navigation only" that will leave the tabs visible at the top of the page if I scroll down?

    Editing Tables

    No worries. The only issue with using the table option in the text widget is that it behaves a bit erratically on mobile devices, and is irritating to fill in edit mode, whereas the table widget is far better behaved. I'm guessing that by"all table widget borders" you mean on that page? Thanks for the pointer above.

    Editing Tables

    This is what I've been looking for, however, when I right click I don't get the option to go into Table properties. Is it sensitive to where you right click?

    Editing Tables

    I'm trying to use the "Table" widget to layout some pages for a colleague. One created, can I get into the table properties to turn off the borders? If I insert a table inside the table it lets me choos, but just using the table widget I don't seam to be able to get to the properties.
  17. Thank you very much.
  18. Yes, this was just a sort of academic exercise done by someone who was trying to understand the HTML widget and how to use it to manipulate text on pages. It was never meant to be a serious alternative to the Text widget. But it has turned into a bit of a competition between 2 members of staff.
  19. Here you go. https://portal.fromecollege.org/app/os As you are Frog Staff I assume that you can get in to edit mode. The 2 "Coded" images/links are the Google Drive and Google Classroom ones.
  20. Hi We've used a couple of methods to build links from our dashboards. links from pictures using the text tool and some HTML code widgets, which creates the image using code. Which is the best method for speed of loading? I have 2 members of staff arguing about it, there are egos involved, so I'd like to be sure of my ground before I say to use one or the other.
  21. @Graham Quince Thanks for all the advice yesterday, it helped immensely. And thank you to Amber for adding the extra page to all the existing portfolios. 😀 Did you put a ticket in about the duplicate sites showing? I haven't received anything.
  22. Excellent. I'll use just the site widget then, that works as long as I can remove staff from the list of people "Appraisal Management" is shared with. In the version that I want to use there's a "duplicate page" action button that allows the user to set up the next year's appraisal targets from a page hidden in the Management site, do they have to have sharing rights to that site to be able to duplicate the page, if so, I'll have to have a think about where I store it.
  23. @Graham Quince "The ePortfolio List widget is in the Advanced Category" - yes I know, but at the moment it only shows my own eportfolio, not the ones I line manage (2nd list in screenshot obtained using the "Site List" widget and keyword, which also shows the "Appraisal Management" site to all staff.)
  24. @Graham Quince Some extensive investigation later........ I can get lists of the eportfolios using the "Site List" widget and a keyword. But not the "eportfolios list" widget ???? Bizarre. The guy who set this up appears to have done it twice. If I log in as a member of staff to see what they can view, there's 2 appraisal sites showing, one completed, one not. But I, as administrator, can only get to the current one, not to the one that I would need to delete in order to tidy things up - suggestions please. The system uses "walls" to record the individuals objectives, whic
