    • Enhancements
      • Automatically start units or tasks when class attendance recorded. See the VETtrak 17.1.3 Release Notes - Occurrence changes point 1 for the condition in which this may occur.
      • To assist in matching classes in the portal with classes in VETtrak, we have added the class code, the occurrence code and the occurrence ID in several places.

      • More fields have been added for editing a client, including:
        • Email both addresses toggle

        • Emergency contact relationship
        • Emergency contact phone number

    • Bug fixes
      • If creating a QA item failed due to inappropriate security access, the message received was generic and unhelpful. This has been changed to indicate which permission was required so the user can go and set it. This should take effect for all security errors.
      • Auto-fill for dates in editor grids wasn't working correctly in Firefox. This has been fixed.
      • Editing an attendance QA item didn't replace the values in the QA item you edited. Instead it was creating a new QA item with the new values. This has been fixed so the existing QA item is correctly modified.
