Remote access update to web:
1) have 'cancel' button,
2) do asynchronously in background
Implement CSV lists in GenerateRotation
Also add to GLOBAL database (with global IDs),
which will be translated to local IDs when dancer
is added to local database.
Rotation window (IN PROGRESS)
Need to update Sub OperatorRemove
Add a new flag, RemovedFromRotationFlag, which causes the dancer
to be status absent, and not shown in the rotation window grids.
1) Set all to Absent/ready/etc. will not affect these dancers,
and a will output a note to that effect.
2) Have a menu option (and popup menu option) to 'Remove'
selected dancers, with an explanation that they will no
longer be listed in the grids.
3) Have a 'Re-insert removed dancer(s)' menu option, which
displays a list of removed from which operator can select
to change their RemovedFromRotationFlag to false.
4) Scanning the barcode or a removed dancer, for any reason,
should set RemovedFromRotationFlag to false.
Option to display '-' or 'x' instead of 'Out'.
preference 'Out' text
Tip Display: Add 'split' display with name list on left
and square pictures on right. Add split screen icon as with
CSDS CFS to effect this mode. Add splitter.
1) increment tip number;
2) keep an open tip flag in the tip data structures
1) display qqch on tip display (e.g., STAR TIP C3A)
2) Set it appropiately
3) Allow for enumeration of Open Tips
Be able to run from USB like CSDS!
Condensed display: option to combine couples
Have a way to edit the number of 'times danced' with another dancer,
so that the operator can tweak it either direction to increase
or decrease the possibility of dancing with that dancer.
Put most registry values into the database, so they are copied to another computer (on USB).
Allow delete a rotation from the web, if created by their user key.
Dancer Table: admin function to insert into global database.
Also Update Partner? DIALOG BOX:
Convert to a form or RTF so that the partner name can be bold,
and I can have an icon or other stuff.
Last night I also experienced a problem where I had
already generated a tip then two dancers wanted to sub
with another two dancers so I tried to use that feature
but found that I could only swap two dancers from one
square to another. In this case I had one of the couples
was sitting out. I could not see where I could choose that
couple who was setting out to do the swap with.
You can do this by swapping the boys, then swapping the
girls. The individual swapping works with "out" dancers,
but the couple swap does not. I'll make a note to look
into this some day.
Try setting up a rotation with 300 couples. Master database.
Need a way to 1) set default value for OK w/Single.
Need a way to 1) change OK w/Single for a large set of dancers.
Auto compact DB on exit
Remote Access: Add VDC-only function with PW to do admin things such as SET PARTNERS
Add # of Couples per Set (i.e., 2, 3, 4, 6). Each tip would have a NDancersPerSet field.
Dancer Table | Import Text: check for duplicates.
Remove restrictions on MAX_NUMBER_OF_TIPS and MAX_NUMBER_OF_DANCERS
or put into Settings.
Test with small screen size.
I check people in as they arrive (change from Absent to Ready).
It would be nice if I could sort this display by couple, since I'll often
be checking them in together. Just a sort method that sorts by dancer name
(as now), but then for each couple bubbles the lexicographically later partner
up to immediately follow the earlier one.
Be able to read a QR code to get all data for a dancer.
Requires a more advanced scanner.
At AACE, color code the sign-in and sign-out sheets.
Fix issues with scanner not being able to read scan code from phone.
Requires a more advanced scanner.
Have an option to partner specific dancers, every other tip (eg, for me + qqun).
Documentation: put scanner instructions on back of business card stock,
then attach barcode to front.
Get and include Barry's help file, convert to HTML or RTF.
DLA wants to edit it too.
Test STAR TIP A and STAR TIP B.
Open Tip: option to display a graphic instead of the text.
Add option to 'Generate Star Tip A' and 'Generate Star Tip B'.
Dancer Table: Add option to import dancers from the
dancer table in another database. Of course, all
dancer IDs will be different, and it should skip
those with Global IDs that are already in the
destination dancer table.
Question though: Is there an easy way to re-set the defaults?
I would like to re-set the "OK w/ Singles" field so it defaults to No,
instead of Yes. I looked thru what I could, but didn't find a way of changing it.
I would like to see you eliminate the "sitout" function tile. I would prefer
that scanning a "present" dancer's bar code default to "sitout," and scanning
the same barcode twice in close succession change their status to "absent."
I think the best interface design is to eliminate the use of the function
tiles whenever easily possible.
Be able to print multiple barcodes for a selected
set of dancers from the current rotation.
Add Dancer to Rotation (this should be the title):
Upon save click, add dancer window should disapperar, the new dancer
name should show up in dancer table, highlighted, and the confirmation
dialog box should say "firstName LastNme added to Dancer Table LF
Would you also like to add the dancer to the current rotation?".
If yes, a resultant dialog box should say "1 dancer added to rotation"
after upgrade from web, SQORT window is hidden.
Barcodes: is there a differnece in the barcode (printed copy)
when 'Use Full Name' is checked?
Test with 125% and 150% screen increase modes
Tip Display: Be able to swap one boy with an OUT boy
Tip Display: option to make Tip# larger, font, color
Make SQROT able to run on portable drive, like CSDS
Easy function to select a rotation, and set data state to before a given tip w/o messing up the source database. I.e., copy the rotation and all the debugging info first.
On Vista, If unable to download update program from web ("Upgrade Failed"),
try doing it from inside a browser instead.
Set someone to 'Any Pref B'.
Then set to 'Any'.
It still shows "PREF B" in the grid.
Use Thumbs Up/Down for OK with Single, NOT for Paid?
