It makes sense to hide the lessons from a development point of view, but in reality it causes people to go "This is a new feature, where are my lessons? Is it broken?" and the questions then make their way to us.
Also with a week view, a teacher can see all their lessons that week and double click for access to the register and marksheets as an alternative route (I can confirm that teachers seem to prefer this over My Marksheet Entry!). Hiding the lessons takes that ability away.

If anyone has experienced speed / performance issues there is a separate discussion, which i'll make sticky in a sec. It covers the patches created to resolve this.
Spring release + Server 2003 = Slow

Finally upgraded to the Spring Release (Dummy tip of the day - you can't upgrade your server with only 1.8 GBs of space on the server! Yikes!)
One useful touch that I hadn't expected was that the new Pupil Premium indicator is included on the Bulk Update routine. Very handy.
Quick question though, I notice on the favourites panel on the home page there are new tabs for Reports, Students and marksheets (I say new, I've never seen them before, so apologies if they've been there for ages.) The implication seems to be that you can set up favourite students (for example) which seems handy for certain people. Does anyone know whether this is the case and, if so, how to add favourite students...or marksheets.

I'm an idiot.
Massive green cross button with the word 'Favourites' at the top of every student's profile! Now I see it , I'm sure that it's always been there.

Trying to run the upgrade at the moment, I'm getting an error stating
The file NovaSatelliteSetup.exe was not downloaded correctly.
The web server gave the following error
The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.
I'm trying to run this from Update and run Solus, the server i'm looking at to download the files is the soulus.lancsngfl mirror.
Has anyone had this problem in a CLEO school? Is there somewhere I can download this file from and manually put it in the download folder, or does it have to come from the same source as the rest of the files?

The release news item in SupportNet referenced in the original post has a link to an iso that you can extract it from.

I don't have a username or password for supportnet, we get our support from our LEA. Is there any other way I can get this file? I was hoping to get this update ready for some NovaT training we are having on Monday. Everything else has downloaded and installed, like FMS, but I need to get hold of that file.
Can anyone drop it into a dropbox folder for me or something like that please?

Just go to support net and register they will give you an account I have one.

If someone drops it in dropbox or such, they would be breaking the law. Any licensed school can have a supportnet account, regardless if they get support\license via the LA or not. If your LA hasn't updated their mirror, it would be for a good reason, especially as it's census next week.

The problem is, it's not quick to get your account approved on SupportNet, at least not when it's urgent.

We try to check that applicants are who they say they are which can take a while.

I wish i'd have known about being able to register for support net before, currently waiting for logon details.
Don't know why the file isn't on the LA mirror, they have sent out instructions for how to install the Spring update, but it just isn't working. Getting fed up with it not working now.

@dezt I think your LA would really object if the file came through a different route - looks like they are running a mirror server i.e. its not managed by us.
If you drop me an email (Phil.Neal@Capita.CO.UK), I'll make sure our guys call your LA and get it sorted first thing Monday. Our desk is open at 8:00.
