Open GIVing 5/21/2020

May 22, 2020

The afternoon of 5/21/2020, Gistic hosted another Open GIVing session. The 3 attendees represented Maricopa Region 911, Prescott Valley, and Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. 

Here is a summary of the event happenings:

  • Helped Dave Eaton (Maricopa Region 911) reset admin access;
  • Walked  Larry Prentice (Prescott Valley) through the process of resetting his password, and attempted to upload data. Larry was unable to upload data, because data had already been uploaded and approved;
  • Planned for a 1:1 session with Doran Dalton (Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community) to occur next week;
  • Reviewed available AZGIV resources, including the AZGIV YouTube playlist and the GIVs resource page on the Gistic website.

During the two Open GIVing sessions, users have asked for enhancements and a few bugs have come to light:

User-Requested Enhancements under Development:

  • Autofill the dataset category after a user uploads points or lines;
  • Expose the user guide and youtube videos on the login screen, so completely new users can get help without logging in.

Bugs Found:

  • The web UI does not work in Microsoft browsers, so there should be a popup warning message when the user tries to load AZGIV in Internet Explorer or Edge.

Bugs Squashed:

  • Keep data processing history even after data is deleted and purged.

Stay Tuned for these upcoming resources:

  • Updated video demonstrating the procedure to download, install and use AZGIV addin on GitHub
  • Video demonstrating how a parent agency can withdraw the approval of a layer, so a child agency may update the layer

Open GIVing session is a bi-weekly event hosted by TSSW and Gistic to help AZGIV users to improve their NG911 readiness.  No registration is required.  Here is how and when to participate.  Happy GIVing!
