Sharing an illustration of the overview page of an observation log activity where students are required to carry out and report observations of celestial motions. The overview shows a summary of total number of observations and time of last observation in each category. The cateogry name is a link to the observations list where the students can add observations.
The activity is individualized to the effect that each student sees the summary of his/her log, and the instructor sees the summary of the whole class.
This overview view does not display actual entries. Accordingly the entry template of the view is empty and the view template omits the ##entries## pattern. Instead the view template uses a view link and a view content patterns for each category to provide the link and show the summary content of the category (respectively). Thus for example the content of the Sun category in the second column of the first row is generated by the patterns
##viewcontent:Sun Observations Summary##
The 'Sun Observations Summary' view is a minimal view which displays the number of entries in the Sun Observations category and a single most recent entry with the template content:
Last observed: [ [time]]
where time is a time field which stores the observation time.
