Core Trillium Update 4.11.00


Core Trillium v.4.11.00 - December, 2018. 


A number of December's updates, detailed in the chart below, relate to the Ministry's changes to the SHSM Program. More information is available here.

Hotfix 1

January 18, 2019

In the Student's Award/Credit tab, the "Accommodation/Provision" button was hidden and inaccessible.  We have fixed that and the button (labelled "Accom./Prov.") is now visible.

Looking Ahead

In Q1 of 2019, we will be upgrading to a new version of PowerBuilder 2017. It will not support interaction with Java 6 utilities, only Java 8. Core Trillium uses some of these utilities as part of its framework, including the log-in process. As a result, when you upgrade any one of our four Trillium PowerBuilder applications (Core Trillium, OnSIS, OnRpts or Interfaces) using the new PowerBuilder 2017 version, it is mandatory you upgrade all four of those applications at the same time. Once these versions have been released, all future PowerBuilder releases will be built in this same version. Please plan to upgrade to these new versions in Q1 of 2019. 

This advisory affects only products we release in 2019 and after. It does not apply to our releases in November and December, 2018.

Release Notes

ModuleAreaDetailsClient Ticket #



GeneralSecurity TasksWe have updated the "Where used" information for the School Preference Security Task to indicate this security task is only used by the OnSIS School Preferences window.038253646142
GeneralUpgradesThe generic scripts part of the DB upgrade package did not check the existence of Synrevoice objects in client environments before attempting to grant permissions to the objects. This check is now performed.36204454773
Assigned SubjectsOnSIS TeacherWhen adding a Subject for a teacher who had at least one Subject already assigned, an Invalid Entry error was displayed several times and the screen froze if a subject was not chosen. We fixed this.
CreditsCompulsory Credit CalculationTo incorporate the new SHSM Component information into the determination of whether a student has met the SHSM requirements, we updated the Compulsory Credit Calculation. When an SHSM student is identified as working towards:
  • The Ontario Skills Passport (OSP) requirement, the student must have the Used Ontario Skills Passport checkbox selected.
  • The Sector-Partnered Contextualized Experience requirement, the student must have selected at least one of these three checkboxes: Coding; Mathematical Literacy; or Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship. More information available here .

ExportFamily ListHomeroom information is now included in the file, when exported to Excel.037867915666
ReportsConsecutive Days AbsentWhen the Consecutive Days Absent/Late Report is generated with the Consecutive checkbox cleared, a student who is Absent in the morning on a Non-instructional afternoon is not Full Day Absent. We fixed that, so such a student is now Full Day Absent.
ReportsContinuing Education RegistersThe International Languages Elementary register has been renamed Register of Enrolment in the International & Indigenous Languages Elementary (IILE) Program.

The ILE Course Type used in the Scheduling > Courses window now has a description of International Lang/IILE.

ReportsContinuing Education Registers

Schools that had multiple Course sections of the Class were appearing on the Register for every Course Section within the Class Code. The UNFUND attendance feature has been updated to consider more than the class_code when determining if a student's Attendance is a 'D" in the Continuing Education Registers. Unfunded session Attendance will now use the student's Class Code, Course Code and Course Section to determine if the session Attendance is to be identified as UNFUND ('D').

ReportsCredit Counselling SummaryWe added the SHSM Component and checkboxes for the Sector-Partnered Contextualized Experience (SPC) to the second page of the Credit Counselling Summary.
ReportsCustom ReportsCustom Reports created by (only) SQL clients no longer fail to display. This issue occurred because SQL allows users to log-in with a username in lowercase, as well as USERNAME in UPPERCASE. If you created a custom report when logged in using one case; but later logged in using the other case, that report was invisible. We added a filter to remove case sensitivity so that SQL considers username either in Lower or UPPER case.03698967, 037193774980
