Access the new Active Content Connector 

Simplified Active Content is now available within the Connectors module. Enter one or more RSS feed URL’s and save. It will now show up on the task and task center tiles. The RSS feeds get checked every 10 minutes, so wait up to 10 minutes before confirming the feed. 

Filter Pinned Sections by Roles/Campuses

Based on the Advanced Settings module, admins can now apply role and campus filters within Pinned Sections. Your home page doesn’t have to remain static anymore. Filtering just got a whole lot easier. 

Ability for end users to rearrange sections on the main page

Your students are looking for more control over how data is presented to them. After all, our goal is to simplify campus life and the ease in which users search. Within the Advanced Settings module, admins can now turn on or off the User Order Main Page Layout.  

Once this setting is turned on, users have the ability to rearrange the existing main page layout, as well as reset this to the default.  

*Per this release, this feature is only available when the Elemental theme is selected in Visual Styles.

 

View Task/Task Center URL redirect history 

Within the task/task center list, when a publisher changes the campus that the task/task center is assigned to, the campus unique key will be reflected in the URL, and the previously used URL will redirect to use the default URL containing the current campus unique key reference.

If you wish to prevent previously used URLs from redirecting to the current and default URL for this task/task center, you will delete them from the Historical URL section. This will also allow this task unique key to be used for other tasks on other campuses. 

Enjoy Accessibility improvements 
  • Allow for the main page to scale based on the browser, with the ability to zoom in and zoom out.  
  • Targeted Notifications are now accessible through a screen reader 
  • Many other fixes based on tools and real user feedback 

The rSmart team is always working with accessibility teams to make sure we maintain AA rating! 

Experience the screen action redesign

We’re doing some spring cleaning and have added an Actions button within all modules to include a dropdown of multiple options you may want to perform within different lists such as; Task, Announcements, Pinned sections, etc. Now you can focus on the important material when modifying current data. (Less buttons to clutter up the screen!)

Edit modules more easily with improved error reporting

When editing within a module, the page will now automatically scroll to the place of missing information within a required field before you are able to save correctly.  

Experience enhancements from the RSS Connector

With multiple functions across campus, from student to staff, end users only want to see information that pertains to them. So, within the RSS connector, we’ve added a feature to filter RSS feeds for specific roles and/or campuses. 

Cherry-pick tasks for the OneCampus app

For those schools using the OneCampus app, you can now choose a separate list of tasks/ task centers that appear in the app vs. what appears on desktop. Power to the people!
