Qwickly have informed us that they they will be undertaking maintenance on Saturday August 12. During the maintenance period, features of Qwickly Attendance and Qwickly Course Tools may be unavailable for use.
We are aware of reports of Qwickly Attendance timing out when users try to record attendance, resulting in an error message. We have reported this to the supplier, who is working to resolve it as quickly as possible. We will post any updates to this blog.
We apologise for the inconvenience that this is causing.
Qwickly Course Tools is currently experiencing an issue which is preventing users from updating course availability and from posting announcements for multiple courses at once. The issue has been reported to Qwickly and we are working on a solution.
Note that it is still possible to change course availability and to post announcements in individual courses using the standard methods within Blackboard.
The update will improve accessibility and replace the main navigation menu with a new left-hand menu to make the system easier for instructors to use. The Qwickly settings have also been reconfigured to further simplify use. Details of the changes can be found on our Service Improvements page. Qwickly will remain available to staff throughout the update.

The update we previously announced for Qwickly Course Tools has now been postponed by the supplier and further details will be announced once they are received.
