Hi all at ULCC,
Firstly congratulations and thanks to all for the ILP Block - having started playing with it just today I can see what a colossal undertaking this has been and how powerful it is, especially in the notion of bringing together data from external MIS databases etc., and then providing tools for its interrogation.
I want to explore whether this block can fit our needs (I work for Ravensbourne down the road from you - though I work remotely). Initially we would not look to connect to an external db. We only want to invoke the Personal Progress Review at this stage, and consider other functionality later. But it is the Student who constructs the review in the sense that the 'answers' (the targets) the student enters this time become the 'questions' to be reviewed next time. Its this one specific feature that has led me to investigate the ILP Block because its just what other activities (e.g Questionnaire) don't do! Can you please advise me on whether this can be done in ILP?
Like others I have met some bugs with the block, and as the first one to hit - the missing theme layout - will affect everyone, I believe it does need to got into the documentation. But I have also now met this one:
Fatal error: Class 'ilp_report_rules' not found in (...)/blocks/ilp/plugins/tabs/ilp_dashboard_reports_tab.php on line 304
And I wondered if that has occured simply because I don't know what I'm doing when setting up a Report; again some examples of the purpose and workflow in setting up a report, and what you are trying to achieve at the student face would help hugely.
Similarly, I can't see how to pull in the default reports that exist in the predefined_reports folder so as to give me a head start.
Finally, let me just add that I'm not knocking this, I think that documentation is our most common weakness, but I would appreciate advice on whether what I'm trying to achieve is fundamentally impossible or not.
