VETtrak Desktop 24.2.0.0

Version released Mar 25, 2024.


User Interface Uplift


The primary focus for this release has been our ongoing User Interface uplift. 


Delivering this work has been a very large undertaking, and almost every part of VETtrak has been improved in some way. 

Over the past few releases, we have been working feverishly behind the scenes preparing VETtrak for these changes, implementing an improved Programme Manager, and updating menus and trees to support the changes needed to implement these improvements.  


In the last few months since our last release, many hundreds of hours have been invested in updating all of the components used within our development systems to utilise the very latest versions that will allow us to incorporate the functionality expected of a modern application. This has necessitated upgrading almost every VETtrak dialog, manager, popup screen, and wizard. 


In addition to that, we have upgraded all of the icons used within VETtrak to a modern SVG format, meaning that we can scale images as required without them looking blocky.  


We have received a lot of feedback over the years from users who find it difficult to use VETtrak due to the size of the screen components. So based on that feedback, for the first act in our UI Uplift we have decided to tackle screen scaling. In VETtrak 24.2 users can now choose how their screen will be scaled from 100 to 150%.


View Settings Wizard 

  • View Settings Wizard. A new View Settings Wizard has been implemented that will allow users to choose their scaling. On a users first access to VETtrak this wizard will be displayed to the user. Allowing them to be change settings to their personal preference.


  • Toolbar changes. A new View Settings Wizard toolbar item has been added to enable users quick access to change their personal view settings.


We hope that this new functionality will make VETtrak screens easier to read and use and will help to increase your productivity.


VETtrak feature guides. VETtrak now includes feature guides that walk you step by step through VETtrak features. New guides will be presented to you upon login. You can choose to step through the guide until its completion or skip it entirely. If you want to relaunch a feature guide for any reason this can be done via the View menu `View -> VETtrak feature guides`.



Data Insights - Tree filter. A tree filter has been added to Data Insights to assist with locating queries.


LMS Changes

  • Ready LMS - Instructor group management. Added an instructor group management setting to control how instructor groups are managed by the Ready LMS integration. By default, 'VETtrak manages instructor groups' meaning VETtrak creates a group for each occurrence you link to a Ready LMS course and adds staff of the selected staff types to those groups. By selecting 'Manually manage instructor groups' this will prevent VETtrak from managing instructor groups allowing you to manually manage them in Ready LMS.


Compliance


General

  • AVETMISS override indicators: The Generate AVETMISS wizard will now show a new status "Over" in orange when VETtrak has replaced the outcome for reporting in the following circumstances. This new status can be filtered like warnings and errors.
  • In NSW and VIC when the unit has a start date in the future, and we report the outcome as Not Yet Started (85)

  • When the unit has a completed result with an end date beyond the reporting period, and we report the outcome as Continuing (70)


VIC

  • VIC Payment History Importer. The VIC Payment History Importer wizard has been updated to work with the new SVTS Payment History file layout. When exporting the Payment History Details file from SVTS, ensure the file downloaded excludes GST amounts (use the Export Details to CSV file). NOTE: From VETtrak 24.2 onwards, the old format Payment History file will no longer be supported. If you need to re-import files from the past it will be necessary to download the new copies in the new version format from the SVTS website.  


Other Changes

  • Staff manager - Staff search personal menu. An issue that caused the staff manager staff search right-click menu to disappear has been fixed. You can now access the personal menu by right-clicking staff in the staff search.

  • Staff manager - Selected item information. An issue causing the staff manager's selected item information panel to remain disabled has been fixed.


  • Duplicate classes. An issue that would sometimes cause duplicate classes to appear under the Future classes and Today and past classes has been fixed.
  •  LLN Robot integration. An issue that would sometimes cause an error message when downloading the learner or learner summary reports has been fixed.
  • Configuration manager - Tree filter. An issue causing the current filter to clear after adding or editing a record in the configuration manager has been fixed.  
  • Attendance manager. The old style attendance manager has been removed.

VETenrol 24.2.0.0

      Users can choose the date range and the document type, which means for example Identity documents can be deleted separately to other types of documents which may require longer retention periods.
