Improvements for "New System"
Since the old system is now nearing eol
just a couple of thing for starters.
The page loading in the new system is very slow if you have a lot of students on the event
example we have an event with around 1000 students. going to the page at
old system page load
usable(big lists of clickable names at least) 4.15seconds
fully loaded 34.3 seconds
new system page load
page visible 6.9 seconds, but completely unusable untill page loading is completed
page completed 51.9 seconds
it defaults to the setup page, if i want the student tab,(most of the time), switching to the students tab, loads the enter thing again!!
and 1st load is useless as you can't interact with the page
page complete time 55.56 seconds
so in the old system i can interact with the page, see a big list of students, edit the event, switch to the lms page, all within roughly 5 seconds
But in the New "improved" system I've got to wait almost 1 minute before i can edit the event and almost 2 minutes before i can get to the list of students.
But wait there is more improvements;
The default page on the old system loads the complete list of student (handy if you need to ctrl+f a few names), remember this is usable after ~5 seconds
The student list in the new system after waiting around for 2 minutes lists only 15 students, if for whatever reason you want to load the next 15, best go make a brew, as its another ~30 seconds, next 15, another ~30 seconds.
The pages numbers are next to useless if for example you are looking for a couple of students starting with the name "R", maybe swap the page numbers to letters?.
its nice that you've included a column sort, however its not nice how it need to reload the data set for every time you sort a column.
every page on the students tab loads financial_stats twice??
The search bar on the Audit tab, as far as i can tell, doesn't actually do anything, i certainly can't search for email addresses, putting 2 characters into the search box blanks the page, then it doesn't do anything else.
If your goal with this new system was to make it look nice, you've done a good job, it looks nice, however looking nice means nothing if you can't actually use the system in any reasonable time frame.
If i was to compare this new system to anything, if would be Windows 8, it looks nice, but it is an absolute arse to use.
