Announcement Details:

Blackboard is pleased to announce the availability of Hotfix 156 for Analytics for Learn to address an issue with incorrect identifying of primary (not primary) advisors in Advisor at a Glance SSRS report.  This hotfix applies to Analytics for Learn versions 4.3.2 through 4.3.3.

ISSUE RESOLVED
The Advisor at a Glance report is not correctly showing whether advisor is or is not a primary advisor for a student.  Original logic adds Primary Advisor indicator “X” for every student regardless records in SQL table (whether advisor is or is not a primary advisor for this student).  In SQL table are records about students and their advisors, advisor could be primary/not primary for the student and this logic could be implemented to the Advisor at a Glance report.  Logic in this report was changed so that Primary Advisor indicator in Advisor at a Glance report should be identified correctly.

  2. Download the compressed RAR file containing the Advisor at a Glance advising report .RDL files. (There is an individual .RDL file for each language supported in Analytics for Learn.)
  3. Follow the deployment instructions to re-deploy the reports .RDL files using Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) to the SSRS server instance. After applying the hotfix, confirm that the reports match the custom style definition.
