There's been a good bit of spiffication (spiffifying?) going on with the web app over the past year or so, and there will be quite a bit more coming up as we find time to fit it in. One of the latest is a rework of all the things that we call "flash" messages throughout the app. Flash messages are the little informational messages that show up at the top of the page to indicate the outcome of some process or request. For example, when you add a new student to a list from the Search page, you used to get a flash message like this:
And you could have flash messages any color you wanted, so long as you wanted blue (with apologies to Henry Ford). And that's the main thing we've changed. Flash messages now appear in all four colors of the Bootstrap rainbow:
So the same flash message in MIS2000 now looks like this:
We've got more new features planned for messages in the web app, including "sticky" flash messages and persistent site messages. Those should be rolling out within the next month or two. We'll keep you posted.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
