Release Notes for v9 (build 1406):

  • XUNO and the Portal have been combined into one website and one installation file. After updating to version 9 you will either need to delete your Portal URL or redirect the Portal site to point to your XUNO website folder. 
  • A complete redesign of the Parent & Student Portal, making it even easier to use. Check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLHpQVjxJB0
  • Increase in performance across all pages, and up to 200% on all Portal pages!
  • We've optimised how user accounts will now work in XUNO and add local user accounts. XUNO will continue to support LDAP / Active Directory in exactly the same way that it does now, no changes.
  • You can mix and match too - use LDAP / AD for students and staff, and local accounts for parents. Local XUNO user accounts will be able to reset their password too. Local user accounts are automatically created, updated or disabled every time your SIS import runs.
  • Parents can change their contact details from within the Portal. All changes are emailed to your school's email address for your admin staff to review and then update in your SIS.
  • Portal has a responsive design, meaning can be viewed perfectly on any device. The interface is clean and easy to navigate on all devices from large desktops through to small laptops and mobile devices.
  • All of the Portal pages have amazing new little features. For an example, we've made the Assignments & Tasks page super simple to use, so that all the information and due work is right in front of the student or parent, including grades, overdue work, due dates, feedback and more.
  • You now get an introductory Welcome Tour when you first log into the Portal as a parent or student. It teachers them how to use it and all of the features that it has.
  • We've added a timetable date to the Parent Teacher Interviews settings, giving you greater control as to which classes will be available for bookings.
  • We simplified the permission settings for the Portal. Read the preparation for version 9 notes below for more information.
  • We added a new Staff Daily Classes report under Administration > Daily Organisation. Use it to print all staff and relief teacher timetables, daily org changes and schedule for a particular day. If you have relief teachers attending - print the report and hand them their list of classes!
  • We haven't officially published it until now, but thought its time we did: XUNO does basic timetabling for small schools! Easily generate a timetable of any size for small schools.
  • General stability and performance improvements to XUNO and the Portal.
