Service Checkboxes with a List of Students

In my last post I talked about KY's ability to enter services by just checking boxes. They also have this functionality for lists of students as well. I've talked about lists in several posts, but this one has links to all the others. So the support for entering a bunch of services for a list of students simultaneously is one we agonized over how to design so it was powerful to be useful but simple enough that lots of users would immediately understand how to use it without training. Here's what we came up with:
