Description

From #11937:

1. Categories: if the post was categorized, is it possible to pull that category into user summary overview page?

Laurie, can you provide some more context on this? I assume you'd want categories to appear somewhere on the 'Screen 2' screenshots in https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oNxivPjB4wsbsILSMEt09TaY7jbuOActsXYYgx1jzbY/edit? Perhaps listed next to or underneath the post title? Would this happen on both the Posts and Comments lists?

Hi Boone,

I think it would make the most sense to have the category for the post appear in the first screen where there is the overview of the users posts. Like you suggested I think it would make sense if, along with the post name and date posted, there would also be a column where the category is listed. I could also see this being helpful in the CSV export of this page (if we go that way).

If possible, the category could also appear in the extended single user summary in the same way, as a column either to the left or right of the date.

Thanks, Laurie. I think this is enough info to move forward.

You specifically mentioned categories in this ticket, but not tags. Is this based on actual requests from teaching faculty? They're generally more likely to use categories than tags in a way that's relevant for grading? I ask because adding another column for Tags may introduce an overwhelming amount of info on the page.

Most professors I have worked with and seen that use categories or tags are using categories to signify certain assignments (i.e. 'reading response 2' or 'week 3 post'). Tags are often more student-driven, allowing them to add keywords, themes, ertc to the post. Tags are not often used as a grading mechanism.

My reasoning for including categories in reckoning allows a prof to do a quick scan and see that the student is missing the 'reading response 2' and "week three reflection" posts quickly without having to determine which posts are which since student titles are not always informative. I have experienced this myself and have been told this from several other professors using categories as an assignment marker/organizer.

So long story short, no I don't think its absolutely necessary to display tags in this view.

Got it - I figured as much, I just wanted to hear it from you :-D

I've just done a first pass at this. See screenshots for the Post and Comments view, in All Users and User mode.

I also fixed a related bug in User mode that was causing zebra stripes to be applied incorrectly.

https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/76a55cdeae9eb495c6735402d76e7fe7c335196c

Laurie, can you have a look at the screenshots and let me know if this is what you had in mind?

#7 Updated by Laurie Hurson almost 2 years ago

Hi Boone,

This type of category display in reckoning looks right to me. The only question I have - would it be possible to label the columns? Something like: Users posts (or comments), category, date.

I dont think this is super important but it would help make clear that the categories are listed with the post title.

#9 Updated by Laurie Hurson almost 2 years ago

Those look great Boone, thanks for sharing. I think the column titles help to clarify the info below & where links will lead.
