This will be useful info for IT admins only, others might find it uninteresting. You have been warned. ;-)
Today, we have made a few changes in ADX (Accudemia’s import tool) and in Accudemia. The most important change is that the CRN and Class Name no longer have to be unique across semesters. Those 2 fields still need to be unique only within the same semester.
That means that you can import a class with the same name, the same postfix, the same Registration Number and the same schedule in 2 different semesters.
Please note the following things:
- The Class Short Name still must be unique for the semester. That means that you cannot have 2 classes named “MAT-101 - Intro to Math”. This is mainly to allow users who don’t have a CRN to import only the class names.
- ADX will be updated the next time you open it.
- If you want to import data for a semester that has not started yet, then you need to a “Semester” column with the name of the semester you want to import the data to.
Also, we have changed the ADX email validation so it accepts email addresses with apostrophes on them. For example, email address such as o’firstname.lastname@example.org used to be blocked.
