Finally, the instability issue has been found out. For those curious, it was about how we consider our microservices to be “ready” for requests : if the microservice was considered ready when not fully started, it would drop the request.
That’s now fixed, mostly thanks to @Daniel-Brierton and @Cian-Butler :- ))
This category is to discuss Zen! Whether it be a new feature, a current issue you are having or an idea you want to bounce off other community members just post in here.
The current list of Github issues can be found here >>
If you want to talk about an issue that is already in Github you can link to it in your post. Otherwise we will be able to help you find it or add a new one for you so that we avoid duplication.
We look forward to hearing your feedback.
Rosa & The CoderDojo Foundation Team
I’d be interested in knowing if you sent to all users or if you did a filtering previous to it?
My idea is that it simplies timed out (too slow to respond) while still doing the job. If that’s the case that you sent it to all users, i’ll look into reproducing it.
Elsewhat, well, i’ll dig deeper
Meet Conor, our newest team member who will be managing our CoderDojo Community Platform, Zen.
See more from Conor here and if you have any feedback or thoughts on improving the Platform for yourself and all those involved in Dojos worldwide we would love you to share them below, on twitter or directly mail Conor
@KramKroc see Conor here if you want to put a face to the name
Woopsies, sorry for the delay.
The easiest way would be to run 2 events; create the first one, duplicate it and change the date range.
Tickets won’t be carried over, but that’s a limitation of the current Zen alas
CoderDojo Denver would also like a place to keep additional notes for organizers/mentors about the students (which belt they’ve been awarded). This seems to be the only feature left missing for us to migrate completely from a combination of Google Docs, EventBrite, and a custom-written attendance tracker.
Confirmed the fix works. Cheers!
@ale-rimoldi yea I totally get what you mean. It was more on the point that it mightn’t make sense integrating with it when it has that policy, while children over 13 can book into Dojos via the platform, the same way as they can have a Facebook account for example. It was more that integrating with something which doesn’t offer protections for under 18s mightn’t be a good idea.
But yea the point about the optional message seems fair. And I think most Dojos that share their events do that via the notes section anyway. I’m not a developer so I’ve no idea what kind of workaround that would involve to have an optional bar on a Dojos profile page.
Any other Dojos have any thoughts on this?
Thanks @Daniel-Brierton and while the waitlist is an overhead for us (I’ve tried both workarounds) the ability to cancel tickets will be a great help. I’ve found that parents only get in touch via e-mail at the last moment so we’ve not been able to free up the tickets for other kids in time for them to come along.
As a wish list request If a ticket is cancelled, I would like it to be automatically be assigned to the next on the waitlist.
@Daniel-Brierton Nicely done!
confusion over cancelling tickets was covered here:
No need to apologise, in the main I’m a massive supporter of your efforts. I agree that the current booking system is pretty confusing. The main reasons we changed from eventbrite to zen was the automatic tracking of attendance for badges and awareness of the wider CoderDojo foundation. However, we still have parents only creating accounts for themselves only and not their children too so the switch hasn’t worked out as we’d hoped and backs up your findings I guess. The new system, from your description, sounds like it may still have same issues?
Hi @Nuala-Nic-Éil I was just checking to see if there was ever anything done about this? I’ve tried the waiting list ticket approach but found it lacking, so if there’s no update I’ll try the ticket approval approach for next month. Appreciate the work as always.
Hey @Edgardo-Marcelo-Silvi .
This seems to happen with a combinaison of usertype/role we seemd to have forgotten. We’ll look for a fix asap.
We used to send a cancellation link to parents when a ticket was booked, but we never had it through the website.
When merging multiple emails (as a parent, we you book for 4 kids, you would receive 4 emails) together, we had to remove the link due to a structural issue.
We’re working on a page to manage your bookings/upcoming events to solve this issue
Same here, we use a Google Sheet for the purpose.Eventbrite is great, but if we cannot mark who is present at what time etc. no use.
For safety fire etc. we need to know who is in the building at any given time. If the list also has contact details for adult, we can react quickly. For example, child is older, no guardian with him but he is not feeling well, check list, call guardian, when they come to collect sign out. Instant updated list.
Can’t wait to have this feature!
@Zita-Daniel-Nad ok in this case, I’d create an event listing as you are hosting it virtually. This way you can add in the details to join and there is no need to create a new separate Dojo listing as there is no continuous location etc. Does this make sense?
Excellent work, thank you
Hi - Tao verification is actually under going a review with the intention of being relaunched in the coming weeks as the current system is quite onerous on the champion and its mentors to fill. You can review the current process here: http://kata.coderdojo.com/wiki/Tao_Supporting_Documents but this entire process will be redesigned and redone and piloted my prospective champions interested in Tao such as yourself. Would be happy to have you pilot it if it interests you.
