Tabula 72 (Hafnium) - Monday 14th July 2014

Tabula 72 (Hafnium) was released on Monday 14th July 2014. The main visible improvements and changes are:

Creation of monitoring points for 14/15

We've now enabled creation of monitoring point schemes for the 14/15 academic year. The system has been completely rewritten to take into account comments and feedback from the process last year. If you'd like one-to-one support with setting up your new monitoring points, please contact tabula at warwick dot ac dot uk and we'd be happy to assist.

General improvements and fixes

  • It is no longer possible to edit or delete other people's administrative notes unless you're a departmental administrator
  • A bug that very occasionally caused students who had deregistered from a module (without ever choosing an assessment group) to still be registered on Tabula assignments has been fixed
  • It's now possible to attach files from both markers in final marking when using Seen Second Marking
  • A bug that made it impossible to confirm scheduled meetings if they were linked to monitoring points that have already been recorded in SITS has been fixed
  • A bug that occasionally caused new assignments not to display after being created has been fixed
  • We now use short names for departments where we have them recorded
  • It's now possible to add a title to individual small group events
  • We now show individual student deadlines on the extension management pages (taking into account any granted extensions)
  • The 'View in MRM' link now opens in a new tab by default
