I'm pleased to announce that we were able quickly find development
partners to fund this project. Many thanks to PaILS, Evergreen Indiana,
and SC LENDS, who joined Georgia PINES and Sitka, to fund this important
improvement to the web client. Many thanks to the other sites that also
showed interest in helping move this project forward.
This was a great example of many Evergreeners joining together to make
the transition to the web client a little easier for l of alour users.
What a great community!

I've been working with Georgia PINES and Sitka on a web client bug fix
project that would allow report templates built in the old client to
convert to the new web client format as soon as they are opened in the
web client. Currently, if you try cloning an old reports template in
the new client, it opens in an old editor that does not carry over
True / False fields for the templates, does not have support for
nullability, as well as some other problems. More information on this
bug is available at https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1642344.
This project is a bit larger than some of our other web client bug
fixing projects. We have a quote from Equinox, and Georgia and Sitka
have committed funds to the project, but more funding is needed to
proceed with the project. This development is expected to ease the
transition to reports in the web client by giving staff the ability to
work with their existing templates rather than creating them all from
The tech specs for the project are available at
we can commit to the project soon, we expect it can be completed in
just a few months, making it available for the 3.2 release, which is
the release when the XUL client will be entirely moved from Evergreen.
