Announcement Details:

Blackboard is pleased to announce the availability of Hotfix 160v2 for Analytics for Learn to address an issue regarding potential duplicity issue in Student Advisor fact (FactStudentAdvisor).  This hotfix applies to Analytics for Learn versions 4.3.2 through 4.3.4.

In Learn an advisor can has more than one role and can be in a relationship with a student with more than one role (e.g. can be both Academic Advisor and Sport Advisor for a given student.  This caused duplicity issues in ETL process.  This hotfix changes A4L model to enable advisor acting in more than one role for particular student. SSRS reports are also changed according this fix.  Advisor at a Glance shows a list of advisor roles for each student.  Advisor at a Glance, Grade Center Exception Report and Login Exception Report have a parameter Advisor Role that now filter the output to selected advisor role.  Before this hotfix Advisor Role parameter only filter Advisor parameter and not the output data.

  2. Download the compressed RAR file containing the report .RDL files (there are individual .RDL files for each language supported in Analytics for Learn).
