Meeting minutes for October 26, 2009

  1. Sakai/OSP 2.6 Issues and Status (Bug fixes can be verified on the following QA servers Nightly Build (HSQLDB) or Nightly build (Oracle))
  2. Sakai 2.7/2.8 Development Status
  3. Standing Agenda Updates
  4. Functional & General Issues
  5. Discussion of Lynn's Proposed Changes to Portfolios Tool
    1. Modify page to select template so that it also includes the step of adding the portfolio name. Suggestion: move Name to top of form. Comment: in the future most people may not see this page, when there is only one template.
    2. Move editing the portfolio name down to the Details section.
      • Need to clarify what problem is being solved by the change
      • Why is default internal name important or need to be changed?
      • Suggestion: remove Edit link from top portfolio name and only keep the Edit link by the portfolio name in the Details section
    3. How to encourage users to fill out required settings?
      • Moving 'Required Content' to tab is not technically feasible
      • Alternatives:
        • Move required settings FIRST prior
        • disable sharing if 'required settings' not
        • copying 'required settings' link to Add/Edit content
        • Adding required settings in wizard-like in portfolio creatiion
    4. Moving Active/Inactive & Allow/Disable comments to share screen
      • maybe doesn't need to be here if Active is the default, plus we don't want to highlight comments
      • Adding to the share screen could confuse an already confusing page
      • Active/Inactive does, however, related to sharing
    5. Return to Wizard like workflow?
      • Needs more thought...
