Daniel: no show-stopper bugs with CS stuff. Just a pile of small bugs to figure out.
one request to have a staff-member enter his info. Still figuring out logistics for this. (common with Eng).
many instances of faculty making edits and not hitting "PUBLISH"
Contributions: we're relying on publication-date, which requires all three entries, so I need to temporarily show all three as mandatory. [done]
check submission date too; use that if it exists?
Employment History: display of "Period" shouldn't show 'through 0000-00-00' if no end-date.
Vu will do.
UTF8 problem (on my end, and reports): g-hat character
try html_entity_decode() (Vu says he sent an email about this.)
Academic Background: what's the definition of "Field"? - "name of discipline" error didn't make it clearer to him. Told him "Department granting the Degree"- correct? Yes. We might change the field description on the page to "Name of Discipline".
(on my end) instructions on contrib page says " or # of pages": he'd like to print that.
Marlon in talks with Office of Research, progress on course critiques.
Vu doing report upgrades.
Beth giving presentation in a few weeks, with more sharepoint content...
Marlon: can we get HR-ish data from IAP? (Institutional Analysis and Planning; they generate reports on campus-wide data) - not much additional that we need.
IAP gives marlon lots of good data already. including faculty service appointments at least down to dean's committees level.
Beth away next week; we'll meet without her.
Daniel: research book stuff, ct'd.; test Vu's contributions import system
