Enhancements and Bug Fixes
- Resolved several Clever-related issues:
- Multi-selecting classes now combines the student lists correctly
- Enhance class list integration to now allow the displaying of a friendly student name (first, last name) when using classes based on login name
- Fixed a Report Server uninstall issue where the shortcuts in the control panel and Apps and Features was not being removed correctly
- Fixed an issue where multiple chat windows have been opened due to multiple alerts being sent
- The context menu when remote controlling a student is now disabled since the information in the Properties dialog for a given student is not actively updated while in the Remote Control session. The Properties information is updated after the session has ended.
