GradeA 2.0 available

GradeA 2.0 is now available in the Mac App Store (link). It adds the ability to take attendance and also import/export data to my iOS Attendance app.

If you plan to use GradeA with my iOS Attendance app, you must enter a unique value for the ID (identifier) field for each student as that is the value used to match students between the two programs. The simplest way to use them together is to create your class using one system or the other and enter an ID value for each student and then import the data into the other system. I have made a few videos showing these features (link) with higher quality versions here: http://gallery.me.com/dave256. I've also started a FAQ for GradeA (link).

Version 2.0 also includes an updated Help file (available from the Help menu of GradeA) describing how to use these new features in more detail. The free demo version available here has also been updated to version 2.0.

I cannot seem to figure out how to set up the email feature. Does it work with a specific email client like outlook, gmail, first class etc? How can the email settings be changed? This is very frustrating.

I'm an elementary school teacher who needs to set up several files for the different subjects I teach. I've followed the directions to create a CSV version of a spreadsheet I have in Numbers, but it's not importing into GradeA. If I hand enter the student names for one file, is there a way to duplicate that list for a new file in GradeA?

Sorry, I just got the notifications for these posts. Please send me an email (it's in the GradeA -> About menu) if you have future questions about the app.

Chance, it uses the Apple Mail app to send the email.

Ann, yes, you can use the Export to CSV option to create the CSV file which you can then use the Import to CSV option. If you want to send me a sample CSV file that you're having problems with (you can enter just a few fake names, but show me the format you're using), I can tell you what you need to do to fix it. Also, the Help menu has a section about the CSV file formats.
