    We just launched a couple bug fixes and one small (but handy) update to the CM Organizer:

    • You can now schedule resources to “Use With” or “Start After” any scheduled Family resource. Previously this was limited to “Use With” and “Start After” only resources scheduled for the same student. This change makes it simpler to schedule SCM’s curriculum, which depends on Family readings with additional assignments for individual grade levels.
    • Newly added custom subjects or new students will now be selected automatically by the subject and student filters on the Daily Plan and Scheduler if you have “All Students” or “All Subjects” selected.
    • Fixed a bug that would display chapters out of order on reports if you had two copies of the resource scheduled.

    By the way, if you haven’t tried the CM Organizer, it’s a great time to give it a spin as we’re heading into planning season. If you have a forum account, you already have access to a free Basic CM Organizer account. Just sign in on this page.

    I am excited to work with the CM Organizer as I plan the upcoming year.  What happens if I need to go back to make some notes on a previous day?  Is this possible?  From my limited knowledge, I can only view today or the next day.  Is this correct?

    Also….  How does the program track attendance?  What if we “do school” but not with any of our planned resources?  Example – Last minute field trip.  How would I track this in the program so that my attendance is up to date?

    What happens if I need to go back to make some notes on a previous day?

    You can make Daily Journal notes only for the current day at this time. If you’re adding a note to an assignment that is on your Daily Plan, you can add the note and then back-date the assignment to the date you completed it.

    The Scheduler page lists every resource you have coming up on the schedule. On the Daily Plan, you’ll see just what is scheduled for today.

    How would I track this in the program so that my attendance is up to date?

    The Attendance report shows that a student attended school on any day that work was recorded. So for a last-minute trip, you would want to schedule it after the fact, then back-date it in the Daily Plan to the date you actually did it. You can back-date assignments with the calendar to the right of the Today checkbox.
