Future releases will include a mouse over to see the memo from tags displayed on profiles and list views

ADDED All new ‘TT” tab under the internal notes on the profile page, allowing you to manually enter or edit Tracking Template data per student. Avoids having to import new data for single students.
UPDATED In bulk email SMTP setup, added an option for a different ‘reply to’ address (eg noreply@eq.edu.au)
FIXED Applied fixes for age formatting with Tracking Template imports displayed in ‘x yrs y mths’ format.
FIXED Fixed formatting issue with 15 per page latest results 2 datawall in the last column.
