Past Tasks

  • Daniel: conv with Ray about ecserv19 / ofis.uwaterloo access. works!
  • Marlon added "BS" to common field.

Today:

  • discussion of delegating via dropdown (Vu's recommendation) vs status quo. Vu wasn't here to make recommendations.
  • prelim. discussion of unifying tables. Marlon and __ will follow up
  • IAP data: employee leave, history, rank are all there. Marlon following up with Sam and fiddlying with employment_history, and sabbatical_leave (actually general "leaves:"), ... [other table? accademic_appointments]
    • 80%+ sabbatical information form will be able to be filled in automatically. Profs will like this.
  • Marlon will have the data working in 2-4 weeks?
  • this means wont' be able to edit sabbatical information manually?...
  • GSO: supervisory end date request: Marlon asking GSO (Derrick) for end-date, which doesn't get imported.
    • Beth will do spot-check of data to make sure this is the operation that will fix known problems.
    • December student finishes; "error" that the GSO takes a month to update data ("student count date").
    • also: we don't get historical updates; they don't pass us older than a year. Beth says: add that to the ST!
  • Marlon: general discussion of errors that get passed on and never fixed: Tom Duver (?) asked his faculty to not enter their data in OFIS.
    • suppressing sections with no data: building RTF from scratch
  • Noki: working on curl to fill in NSERC form 100. discussion: is this a useful direction? their forms keep changing. he's also working on producing rtf of contributions, as submission for that form.
    • web testing demo next week
  • Lei's calendar-picker not ready yet.

Upcoming Tasks:

  • Daniel: research-book work, demos
    • tell profs: changes will be erased.
    • look up email to the list: bibtex-using prof, wants to test.
    • "2234 manuscript pages" - where does that come from? End-page isn't supposed to be a range, is it?
    • logic for page-ranges: holes around "" or 0 for source, n for end
    • Awards: "Show on Web" for everyone; Daniel will need poking at how that select will work.
    • website entry: show edit fields for interests, teaching, service: D.
  • Marlon: Vic DiCiccio ?
