31/10/2010Implemented task runner functionality. These tasks are defined in the database and designed to be executed by an automated process (e.g. CRON). The final piece is to setup the automated process to run on a daily basis.
30/10/2010Updated mail functionality so emails can now be sent with attachments.
28/10/2010Added type to templates (this is currently either 'Clinic' or 'Job'). This allows the template dropdown list to be filtered depending if it's being used in the clinic or job list.
28/10/2010Added 'hidden' type to templates. Hidden templates are used purely for internal purposes and are never shown through the UI.
27/10/20103.4.0 released.

04/01/20103.3.0 released.
29/12/2009Implemented 'time difference' functionality. This allows a user or organisation to have a different time than the server. This is very useful if you're hosting the application on a server who's time is different to the users (e.g. hosting in UK for an application primarily used in America). In the case of STS there is no time difference so everything will appear unchanged.
29/12/2009Updated template processor to replace the reserved markers (%NOWDATE%, %NOWDATETIME%, %NOWTIME%) anywhere in the data, not just those inside the repeater section.
27/12/2009Added messages functionality. Messages can be sent to users (via the users admin screen) and will appear when they login.
26/12/2009Fixed bug with 'Patients due' grid not exporting it's values correctly (they were all zeros).
25/12/2009Made global changes across application to include the logged in user when calling all stored procedures. This change will be required when auditing is implemented and getting it done now will make life easier later.

07/10/2009Added voucher codes to analysis patient export.
07/10/2009Updated so that the site is automatically redirected to httpS if http.

04/10/2009Made changes to the calculation engine so that it can now optionally include a breakdown of values down to individual patients.
04/10/2009Added an export for the calculation results at the individual patient level (see above). At the moment it is not clear where the export should be in the UI so for short term it is hidden and is only accessible if the url includes a parameter called 'patientbreakdown' (the value of this parameter is irrelevant).
04/10/2009Added export button for patient breakdown on analysis page.
03/10/2009Extended the dashboard grid to be able to collapse just like the lists.
03/10/2009Updated patient test so that the user picks whether the test amount is the upper band, lower band or other. In the case of 'other' the user enters the amount explicitly.

02/10/2009Added 'Clinic job summary' list. This helps to ascertain when jobs for a particular clinic home are all ready for delivery.
02/10/2009Extended the dashboard lists so that the user can collapse the lists they don't want to see. This not only helps the user to focus on the lists that they are most interested in but improves performance as the collapsed lists do very little work.

13/09/2009Further changes to the analysis page: i) altered the data columns in the grid to more useful ones ii) the analysis grid only shows rows which have at least one non-zero value iii) added image map to chart. This allows the user to click on a month in the year chart to display that single month. The user can click any bar in the month chart to return to the year iv) coloured any columns in the analysis grid the same as their colour in the chart. This makes the link between the chart and the grid far more intuitive v) added income breakdown chart. This currently cannot be accessed until the options table is created.
13/09/20092.9.5 released.
13/09/2009Extended analysis page to look more consistent with other pages. Added buttons to allow the user to choose 'summary' or 'breakdown'. Still need to add the controls to allow the user to choose a date.

11/09/20092.9.0 released.
10/09/2009Added 'alternative amount' to patient sight test details.

10/09/2009To display the calculation engine results there is now a chart component.
10/09/2009Built an income calculation engine. This can work out the income for any specified duration on a day-to-day basis.

05/09/2009Removed 'deceased' col from patient lists and replaced with home postcode.
01/09/20092.8.6 released.

09/08/2009Updated most list exports to export more data. Home and PCT lists now contain address data.

23/07/2009Added the framework for orders. An order links to a patient and optionally a sight test (which in turn links to a clinic). Still need to finalise the fields of an order but there is enough there at the moment to make it useful.
23/07/2009Changed the names of status's and fixed types from always being uppercase to normal case.
21/07/2009Updated form field controls to extract the posted values on demand without the need of the validate function being called first. This fixes a bug in the menu hints occasionally going wrong.

21/07/2009Updated the action icons on the list, calendars and schedulers to be more consistent (green background with white border).
20/07/2009Extended the clinic status's to have a 'Processing' state (this fits between 'Open' and 'Closed').

Once the user has processed the clinic they can click the 'Close' button.
20/07/2009Added link from a patient sight test to the clinic that the test relates to (if there is a clinic).

04/07/2009Inactive patients (patients who are deceased and/or belong to an inactive home) do not have a RAG status in the patient lists.
04/07/2009Modified the duration control so that the displayed values are more user friendly. The values now show the unit name (e.g. '10 minutes') and for large durations the hours / minutes are displayed (e.g. '1 hour 30 minutes').
04/07/2009Made the information in the clinic and home month calendars more consistent with the scheduler. The clinic and home month calendars now show the patient count.
04/07/2009Updated the month calendar to have the same highlighting logic as the day calendar and the scheduler.
03/07/20091.6.2 released.
03/07/2009Added 'Number of patients' readonly info to Clinic and Home properties.
03/07/2009The login page now also uses an email if there is one in the url (value name is email). This is useful when dealing with multiple user accounts as one can setup different shortcuts to the site with different emails in the url.
02/07/20091.6.0 released.
02/07/2009Changed default search to 'home' in Clinic Prospects list.
02/07/2009Removed 'Patients' from 'all clinics' list. This allows the underlying view to execute a lot faster.

01/07/20091.5.0 released.
01/07/2009Added framework for settings at an Organisation and User level. The constants used for settings have now been replaced with a database table. These settings are retrieved and cached when the user logs in. One of these settings relates to the theme (the presentation of the application - stylesheets, images). Re-organised the presentation files so that there is now a default theme directory. New companies will get a copy of this directory which they can then customise.
01/07/2009Did some optimisation on the patient lists. Patient queries are now executing approximately three times faster.
01/07/2009Fixed bug in Clinic close where the notes for the auto-generated patient sight tests were not using 24hr time so it was not clear if say, 07:30 is either am or pm. Time is now in 24hrs.
30/06/2009The validation errors on the form now link to their respective fields. This means the user can now click on an error message and the cursor will focus on the field which produced the error. In the case of no javascript the form is scrolled to ensure the field is visible (standard anchor functionality).
30/06/2009Removed 'deleted' status from clinics. When the user deletes a clinic now it is permanently removed from the database. The user can however only delete open clinics.
30/06/2009Added document repository. Allows the user to store useful documents online.
29/06/2009Added the concept of organisations. An organisation is a container for all data belonging to a particular company / client. A user belonging to an organisation will only ever see the data relating to that organisation.
29/06/2009Improved the robustness of the application when the user attempts to manually modify the url.
29/06/2009Added account status to user. This value also inherits from its organisation (therefore disabling all users belonging to an organisation can be done by simply modifying the organisation account status).
27/06/2009Added footer. This displays the version and copyright text.
27/06/2009Updated the day_calendar so that it attempts to reduce the number of empty cells by creating spans.
