I read the help documentation update and I'm excited to see that you plan the next release to be around the first week of 2013!johnsonth wrote: By the way, two big features are coming in the next release: A Regenerate Lesson Sequence button. We hope this will be a quick fix to the unintuitive interaction between events and classes. (2) Allow class instructors to edit their classes.
I'm looking forward to the updates. I think the instructions are still a little misleading, as they don't address this:
However, if a new release is coming in another week or so, it's probably not worth clarifying this in the current documentation.failproof wrote: The problem here is that, there is no way to make auto population work correctly for those types of events/classes. The catch is that the event has to be created first and applied to the class at that time, so that when the class is created (which is the point that the auto populate happens, not when it is activated and not when the manual is added if you don't add it at time of class creation) then the events and lessons will all be in place as desired, with no lessons skipped. Since the only way to apply an event to a class before the class is created is to check the All option, this doesn't work for the events you are talking about. You will, unfortunately have to edit most, if not all weeks for those classes, no matter what you do right now.
It will be good that instructors can edit their own classes. The difficulty will arise in that we don't have multi-instructor support yet.
