Category: Release notes

Published: April 13, 2016

We’ve just pushed the latest update to School Jotter live. You might have noticed these are coming more frequently now – we’re aiming for smaller, more frequent, more agile releases every two weeks, rather than a big one every few months.


  • A new Files Download element has been added that allows you to share files and folders to your school website.
  • Pinterest has been added to the social networks list (compatible bespoke themes only.)
  • Extra security has been added to blogs that have been embedded on the website.
  • An issue that broke pagination of embedded blogs has been resolved.
  • An issue where CSV results were exported incorrectly from Forms has been resolved.
  • An issue where images could not be removed from News stories has been resolved.


  • New ability to restrict sending of messages based on User Roles.


  • New “My Spellings” area added for students, this displays spellings that have been shared but not set as a test.


  • Surveys can now be exported as a CSV file to allow for further analysis of results.
  • Extra validation has been added to matrix type questions if they are set as required.
  • An issue where surveys with more than 100 responses would display incorrectly has been resolved.
