Tabula 2019.8.1 released

We released Tabula 2019.8.1 on Thursday 1 August 2019. This release features:

  • Accessibility improvements, including:
    • Help text and modals are available when you hover your mouse over or select an item. These are now also accessible using just the <Tab> and <Space> keys on a keyboard.
    • In the activity stream, the order in which items are selected when you move between them using the <Tab> key is now more intuitive.
    • Attendance notes are now easier to add using only a keyboard because the Absence type dropdown is automatically selected.
  • Other improvements, including:
    • We have added a checkbox to enable you to select / deselect all when you manually add students to a small group using a SITS query.
    • Markers can review their marking using the 'Review' button for each assignment on their Coursework Management homepage. This button is now available regardless of the marking workflow stage.
    • It's no longer possible for a student's university ID to be 'active' in Tabula when removed from central university systems before its inactivation date. For example, a student will no longer remain on a monitoring scheme for a department after transferring to a different department.
  • Security enhancements
  • Bug fixes, including:
    • Feedback audit pages for students on assignments with no workflow now display the current feedback, whether published or not.
  • Further work on the upcoming Mitigating Circumstances functionality.
