Vidhi Bansal (3D Visualization Artist) completed her 8th week helping with video and AutoCAD renders for a 4-dome cluster Earthbag Village housing design. This week Vidhi worked on some texture modulation, and adding more assets. She retextured a part of the ground, changing the colors, and added a playground that was modeled and textured but will be made into more earthy colors next. Vidhi then also added some more big trees which required more asset hunting and texturing. She also posed some people within the landscape and placed some under the trees and around the playground. Next step would be working on some foliage re-coloring (the one right next to the walkways), playground textures and more posed people. Check out the pictures below as examples of this work.

DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER PROGRESS

duplicable city center, open source city hub, laundry, dining, swimming pool, hot tub, kitchen, library, game roomOne Community is demonstrating common sense ecology through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:

This week, the core team continued reviewing the latest Duplicable City Center SketchUp file for accuracy. We corrected five issues mentioned in the suggestion list. Updates were related to the redesign of kitchen cabinets, moving the kitchen sink to match window opening, adding more washers and designing dryers for the laundry room, and we started updating the balcony court of the third level. We also updated its shape and started redesigning the railing to match the updated balcony. See below. 

Duplicable City Center, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

The core team also continued working with a new member of the team on what’s needed for the complete Duplicable City Center cabinetry. This week’s work involved beginning the design process for the Kitchen-Dining room stairs. The design process involved compiling the exact dimensions for the stairs, then using those dimensions to calculate the number of steps, riser height, tread depth, handrail height and balustrade spacing, then using that information to create a first draft model of the stairs. See related pictures below.

Ranran Zhang (Architectural Designer) completed her 15th week working on the updated video for the Duplicable City Center internal and external walkthrough. This week, Ranran focused on the production of the video. She first fixed the ground material at the entrance, changing the sand floor to a stone floor. And she re-imported the updated model into Lumion. After that, she changed the material of the exterior paths, which includes sand, decomposed granite, and stone. In addition, she added figures, animals, and plants to the Lumion model according to the previous video. Ranran also added some fragments to the video and finished the video clip of the entrance. See below for some pictures of this work.

Julio E. Marin Bustillos (Mechanical Engineer) completed his 6th week helping with the City Center Dome Hub Connector Engineering. This week, Julio came up with an idea to incorporate hub connector brackets at each node faster. Also he noticed some irregularities with the model that are likely due to the underlying 3D sketch that was originally created and so is looking into that. Julio and Yiwei are both working to generate a load analysis model in different software packages for better confidence in the results. At the same time, they are able to share solid models using the STEP file format which is readable by both softwares and so are not entirely working in parallel. Pictures of some of this work are below.

Yiyun Tan (Management Dashboard Team Leader) completed her 47th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Yiyun worked on the bug “weeklyCommittedHours cannot be edited”, she raised a PR for this bug and also cleaned up the misspelled objects (weeklyCommittedHours/infringements) in the database. In addition to this, she helped the team on Slack with problem solving, resolving merge conflicts, logging new bugs, and creating/maintaining the tutorials. Pictures of some of this work are below.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Yan Xu (Software Development Engineer) completed her 33rd week helping with the Highest Good Network software. For this week, Yan revised the first PR. She also worked on the edit button on the summary management page. Now it is possible to click the edit button, and it will show a pop-up to input the new summary group name and, after clicking the ok button on this pop-up, the new summary group name will be shown in the table. Next Yan started finishing the create, update, read, and delete functions for the summary group and the team member selected and summary receiver selection functions. See pictures below for some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Alan Lee Sing Chan Yau (Software Engineer) completed his 20th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This last week Alan focused on working on fixing the problem in the WBS page when opening a parent folder and opening a subfolder and then closing and reopening the parent folder. The subfolders would not behave correctly after we perform these actions. I believe that reviewers should give me videos as feedback, because I feel that some of them don’t know how it should behave. It’s hard to explain in words so it’s better to watch a video to understand the problem. This week’s main focus was closing and finishing up previous PRs. Alan made some comments and resolved conflicts on the PR to be updated to the latest development branch updates. Pictures below show some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Jianjun Luo (Software Engineer) completed her 17th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Jianjun went through the first two sub tasks of the performance enhancement task. She checked the points mentioned in the task and did some changes to remove the duplicated condition and then solved a problem related to the data fetching. Jianjun found two urgent bugs when working in the third sub task which only happens in the Development branch. She will try to fix them or at least find out the cause next week. Pictures below show some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Johny dos Santos Anastacio (Software Engineer) completed his 15th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. Johny this week worked on his task “Create a Details Button or other way to see when a specific badge was earned”. He had finished this task, but while working, he found out that the badges were not being assigned (because other functions on the userHelper file were getting an error and that was not allowing the other functions to assign the specific badges). Johny continues to work towards fixing this bug. Pictures below show some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Aishwarya Kalkundrikar (Full Stack Software Developer) completed her 12th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Aishwarya started working on email functionality, finding the files and understanding the backend code flow. She decided on the file and functions she will require for the functionality and has also written a basic function outline. Next, Aishwarya will bette understand the variable flow so that she can use Task related variables for her functionality. She also tried connecting to the hgnData_beta database collection from Compass and retrieved the credentials from Azure for the same. Pictures below show some of this work.

He also worked on the functionalities of the Team Reports Page, now the page’s table is 100% working and with functional filters. Check out the pictures below as examples of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Filipe Santos de Oliveira (Full Stack Developer) completed his 8th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. During this week Filipe realized that he could not style a loading skeleton’s parent element and add child elements to it. He had to rearrange the code. Instead of using Bootstrap to style it in a jsx file and applying it straight to the skeleton element, he had to make a new file called cardskeleton.js and construct elements independently for each original page element. His current objective is to style the elements within the style.css and the cardskeleton.js file’s proper size. One issue he encountered while building these skeleton parts for team member tasks was that the titles of team member, clock, and tasks were being relocated to the right as he styled components specific to each user. See below pictures as examples of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Prabhjot Singh (Fullstack Software Engineer) also completed his 7th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. Prabh worked on his WBS task responsibility. He attempted to build two options, but the second option did not work very well. The majority of time was spent on the 1st option, which was working as intended. He has added a scrollbar to tasks so we can now view them on mobile. Prabh also reviewed 6-7 PRs. See below pictures as examples of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Tianjue Wang (Software Developer) completed her 7th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Tianjue worked on fixing bugs and developing new features. The task Tianjue spotted and tried to fix is to create the ability for admin/owner users to approve and apply suggested changes on a task. By adding some functions to the designated button “Approve”, the owner can successfully apply those changes and the task should be updated. Also, the suggested changes will be removed from the alert page. Pictures below are related to this work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Jinchao Feng (Software Engineer) completed his 5th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Jinchao focused on the development of the function: all users but Volunteers can make themself invisible to team members. He reviewed mongodb docs and downloaded mongodb GUI to test the queries, finished most parts of the backend development, followed up and solved CircleCI problem on PR #699, and logged bugs of the user not being able to delete roles with special characters in the name. Pictures of some of this work are below.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Sav Costabile (Web Developer) completed his 5th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Sav tackled the backend bug focused on the badge component. The issue in question was a problem with the noInfringementStreak badge not being awarded to users despite meeting the requirements. After spending more time than expected testing the front end they realized that the issue must be somewhere on the backend specifically when users are updated at the end of the week to be awarded new badges. They ran into some problems testing the backend for the first time but with a bit of googling, they were able to find the bug, an improper call on a property of the user objects being used. Once this was fixed the bug was gone! Pushed up to GitHub and just waiting on approvals for the merge. See below for related pictures.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Vitor Adriel (Software Engineer) completed his 5th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This was Vitor’s first week on the development team, his first PR was the #712. This PR made some changes in the BadgesReport component, adding a new function in the file and a new behavior when the save button is clicked. It checks if the count of the badge is zero and then adds this badge to an array of badges that will be deleted. Implementing the feature of removing all badges whose count is zero when the save button is clicked. He also addressed reviews on his PR #700, which was raised last week. This one fixed an issue where the Admin could not change the WeeklyCommittedHours directly from his profile page. That was being caused due to a misspelling on the variable that was being sent to the backend. Vitor also reviewed PRs: #707, #292(BE), #718, #291(BE). See some examples of this work in the pictures below.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Ayush Tripathi (Full Stack Developer) completed his 5th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Ayush reviewed 4 PRs including 720, 721, 719 and 712. The majority of the stories worked flawlessly. Since he was still not clear with the approach to take for the new “Create “Submit for Review” Button” function assigned to him, he discussed the approach with Kaixiang and asked him to help with the database part. He discussed some of the concerns that he had with Jae and got feedbacks for them. For the first step of the story he is designing the UI part and the workflow of how the task will be done. He still needs to figure out the database part of the story. See pics below that are related to this.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Lucas Emanuel Souza Silva (Software Developer) completed his 5th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Lucas worked on the task, “Special Situation – User Hours Set to Zero” and is almost finished. Lucas changed the function that gets the Leaderboard data, and the function that gets the Org data so the only users that are counted are the ones that are not Mentors and the ones that have weekly committed hours greater than zero. On the front end, a filter is applied depending on the user’s role. The pictures below share some of this developing work.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Angelina Truong (Full Stack Software Developer) completed her 4th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Angelina reviewed PR #709 and addressed her peer’s feedback regarding this PR. Some of the concern was that the height of the HOURS column did not fill out the summary bar height. She resolved this issue by adding the d-flex class onto the appropriate columns. She then started her second week in code development. She began studying the application code to familiarize the components that she will be addressing. She drafted different approaches that could resolve the task at hand, which is to allow users who are managers and above to submit weekly summaries for other users. She restructured her code to be consistent with the flow of the application. She raised a PR #722 she added submitWeeklySummaryForOthers onto the permissionLabel. She also used the hasPermission function to check if the user has the submitWeeklySummaryForOthers permission. If they do, this will not disable the summary bar. While testing the branch she discovered a possible bug that is happening on both the development branch and PR #722. She has addressed this possible bug and will continue to monitor this development. See pics below.

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Harlley Bastos (Full Stack Developer) completed his 4th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Harlley focused on fixing all the errors in the New Clock feature. Despite encountering several challenges, he remained determined and persevered until all the errors were resolved. Harlley displayed excellent problem-solving skills and attention to detail as he meticulously combed through the feature’s code to ensure its optimal functionality. As a result of his hard work, the New Clock feature is now running smoothly and error-free.  The pictures below share some of this developing work. 

Highest Good Network software, Common Sense Ecology, One Community Weekly Progress Update #522

Crystal Song (Software Engineer) completed her 4th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Crystal started working on fixing the bug, “when a user clicks on the button `All` the expected function is to expand all the sub tasks.” It did not have some of the folders opening and many other side effects with the function. Crystal first started by examining and recording the UI to better understand the user perspective. Next, she looked at the code and noticed that there are some vanilla javascript used with React and suspects this might be causing the side effect with the function. Crystal will take a deeper dive to see how much code needs to be changed next week. Some pictures related this work are below.

Alan Lee Sing Chan Yau (Software Engineer) completed his 19th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Alan worked on a bug that is happening in the projects page. This bug was happening when we open a new folder, and then we open a subfolder, and then close and reopen the first folder we opened and we cannot see the contents of the subfolder anymore, but it shows an open folder icon. The other bug happens in a similar way when clicking on the edit button of a subtask of a subfolder, and the editing options will still show after we close the parent folder. Alan was able to fix both problems by the end of the week, and he was able to raise a PR. There is a bug that is still in the projects page, and it happens when we click the all button and it is supposed to open all folders and subfolders. But this is not happening, and there are some subfolders that are left unopened. Pictures below show some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Permaculture Community Creation, One Community Weekly Progress Update #521

Filipe Santos de Oliveira (Full Stack Developer) completed his 7th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. During this last week, Filipe worked to implement the loading-skelton component from the react-loading-skeleton library and the associated CSS styles from the skeleton.css file that is located in the same library. For ‘<import Skeleton from ‘react-loading-skeleton’>’ and ‘<import ‘react-loading-skeleton/dist/skeleton.css’>’ the skeleton component provides a visual placeholder for content that is being loaded asynchronously. The import ‘react-loading-skeleton/dist/skeleton.css’ line imports the CSS file that is required to style the Skeleton component. This file contains the necessary styles for the Skeleton component to look and behave as expected. For ‘<tbody> {isLoading ? ( <Skeleton height={90} width={1010} count={10} /> ) : ( renderTeamsList() )} </tbody>’ the code checks whether the isLoading variable is true or false. If it is true, the code displays a Skeleton component, which is a visual placeholder that indicates that data is being loaded. The Skeleton component takes three props: height, width, and count, which specify the height and width of the skeleton component and the number of skeleton components to render. If isLoading is false, the code calls the renderTeamsList function, which presumably returns a list of teams as JSX elements. These elements are then rendered inside a tbody element. Overall, this code provides a way to display a list of teams in a React component with a loading indicator. When isLoading is true, the user sees a placeholder instead of the actual content. When isLoading is false, the user sees the actual content. See below pictures as examples of this work.

Tianjue Wang (Software Developer) completed her 6th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Tianjue worked on fixing bugs of the app and developing new features. The task Tianjue spotted and tried to fix was that the red bell sometimes didn’t work properly. By reading code and locating why clicking on the red bell will break the page, Tianjue added one condition for when the old task is empty. She also prevented reloading the page before all the needed actions were ended and this solved the problem. What’s more, she designed the look for a new feature of the app and will keep working on this next week. Pictures below are related to this work.

We were also working on the Master Shopping list to ensure everything was linked and calculating correctly. While working on the Master Shopping list, we noticed the website links and costs in the Master Food Costs were misaligned and/or incorrect. Once we noticed the issue with the Master Food Costs, we began working on that so the costs were correct. See below for pictures related to this.

Alan Lee Sing Chan Yau (Software Engineer) completed his 18th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Alan started by working on resolving issues in past PRs. He started working on the “mark task done PR”, and by the end of the week he was able to fix the issues and the PR was merged into the development branch. Then he worked on resolving issues on duplicate name popup PR, and it hasn’t been merged because of some problems in the form, and it was not accepting some phone numbers where they had less than 10 digits. Alan fixed that and hopefully it can be reviewed again soon. He then worked on the “subfolder tasks not displaying” fix. Alan was able to solve the main problem when closing the mother folder and then reopening it, but there is still the issue where the edit still shows after closing the folder when clicking to edit a subtask or folder. Pictures below show some of this work.

Filipe Santos de Oliveira (Full Stack Developer) completed his 6th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. During this week, Filipe worked to update the task list state and render the updated list, he added the useState() hook in the TaskList tasks component and passed the setTasks function to the markAsDone function, which updates the task list state. The list can then be rendered using the JavaScript map() function to iterate over the updated tasks. He also added the useState() hook for the tasks list (taskList) and passed the setTaskList function to the markAsDone function. Then, he updated the TaskButton function to pass the markAsDone function as a prop. With these updates, the task list should re-render whenever the setTaskList function is called. But whenever he tried to adapt the scripts to the needs of the software he broke the code. The example above was one of several unsuccessful attempts he made. See below pictures as examples of this work.

The Compression Team consisting of Genesis Avila (Engineering Intern Researcher)Fatima Duenas-Esparza (Engineering Intern Researcher), and Sarah-Jean Boyd (Engineering Intern Researcher) completed their 16th weeks helping with the Aircrete and earthbag compression testing. This week the Compression Testing Team made three batches of aircrete. The first batch was a control batch using Drexel as the foaming agent. The second and third batches were the same as the first batch with one variable change – instead of using Drexel, 7th Gen was used as the foaming agent. Two batches were made of the 7th Gen, because one batch was made incorrectly so the testing was repeated the correct way. Pictures below are related to this work.

Alan Lee Sing Chan Yau (Software Engineer) completed his 17th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Alan started by working on the “mark task as done” new feature. The new feature was working well, he just had to test it out and clean the code a bit before making a pull request. In the process, Alan found out that not all tasks were showing the new check icon. This is because the check was only visible where taskNotification.length > 0, and that was the same for the bell. But now it shows up in every task under the Tasks tab in the Timelog and Tasks component. The PR looks good now, and hopefully it can be merged soon. Then Alan reviewed some feedback on his PopUpBar and Timelog PR about a small change in the css. He agreed that the feedback was good, and proceeded to make the changes. Right now the PR is approved and hopefully it can be merged soon. Lastly he focused on working on the subtask bug where the subtasks’ tasks were not showing correctly when opening and closing folders. Pictures below show some of this work.

The core team also continued working with “Murphy Bed Assembly Instructions” document. We resolved comments where feedback had been integrated, generated requested images for different sections of the Murphy bed, and provided detailed explanations with supportive images for some of the comments.

Murphy Bed Assembly Instructions, Teacher Permaculture Hubs, One Community Weekly Progress Update #518

Stacey Maillet (Graphic Designer) completed her 88th week working on the final edits and revisions to the Murphy bed instructions. This week Stacey continued to resolve many of the comments received on the Murphy bed instructions. The individual files for each section are being separated and saved with the correct section name and all the pages within the files are being renamed. Since we have finalized the pages and page orders, each page will be named with the section name, page number and page name so that the JPG file for each page will be properly labeled once exported. When complete, we’ll post all the individual pages as separate JPG files in addition to the PDF. There are many comments relating to adjusting graphic elements and also the placement and cutting of wood. We’re trying to make changes consistently across all areas. Screenshots below relate to this work.

final edits and revisions to the Murphy bed instructions, Teacher Permaculture Hubs, One Community Weekly Progress Update #518

Julia Meaney (Researcher and Assistant to Executive Director) completed her 22nd week with the team. This week, Julia checked on the Murphy bed Instructions” PDF, resolving and addressing comments as needed. She then took a look at the “Addressing Non-recyclables” Google Doc and reviewed the last added content as well as the final format. Julia worked on the “Door and Window Research” Google Doc to review recent work and edits and also edited the “BEST DOOR Companies” tab of the “Sustainable Window and Door Research” Spreadsheet to make it more visually effective. Also this week, she added new screenshots of the updated “Chickens” tab of the “P1c – Food Infrastructure Comprehensive Cost Analysis” Spreadsheet to the “Chicken” Google Doc. She then backed up all of the missing items from the Resources section of this webpage as PDF documents to her Dropbox folder. She then checked progress on other tasks such as the “Hot Tub Sanitizer Alternatives” Google Doc and the “Sustainable Roadways, Walkways, and Landscaping” webpage. Finally, Julia worked on finishing the “Eco-laundry” webpage. She re-wrote sections as well as adding new sections to the page and rearranging and editing content to make sense with the overall narrative. While doing this, she made corrections to ToC formats, links, and various other coding issues. Julia reviewed the entirety of the page and evaluated the research to clarify the final washing machine decision. She made notes of this on her OC Google Doc and relayed her thoughts about bringing on researchers for updating this research and finding currently available models. See pictures below.

Yan Xu (Software Development Engineer) completed her 29th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Yan continued working on the add function for the summary management page. For the front end, she created an action endpoint (router) to “create a new summary group button” for the back end, she made a controller, router, and model for the “create a new summary group button.” Although it is extensive code work, it still does not work yet; every time after clicking create a new summary group button, it consoles the log post error in the browser. Yan still needs time to debug. Also, she improved the code for the summary management page. She divided the page into small components like table header, table body, and summary overview, instead of all the code written in the one page. Yan then put it into a server file and imported it to the summary management page. The aim of this action is to make it easier to maintain in the future. See pictures below for some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Teacher Permaculture Hubs, One Community Weekly Progress Update #518

Alan Lee Sing Chan Yau (Software Engineer) completed his 16th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Alan started by working on fixing ongoing problems in his previous PRs. One of the PRs he worked on was the change from”Classification” to “Category” PR, and Alan created a more clear way to see which items are tasks and which are subcategories. He also replied to some feedback on the duplicate name PR, and it was approved by three different reviewers so hopefully it can be merged soon. Alan also worked on the View weekly summaries button PR, since it was requested to make the button smaller. Alan updated the PR, and got some feedback about some small problems. Lastly, Alan worked on the user management dashboard new feature to mark a task as completed on the dashboard. Alan was able to mark tasks as done from the dashboard with the new code he wrote. He will test it further and create a PR if it all works well. Pictures below show some of this work.

Rajasri “RJ” Janaki Raman (React/MongoDB Full-stack Developer) completed her 12th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, RJ worked on optimizing dashboard and timelog data load. She successfully reduced the 18 time leader board data setting to 1 time, removed console log statements, and added a scroll bar on overflow to badges section in the dashboard. She also assisted a few volunteers on Slack for an environment issue. She additionally sanity tested all the code changes. Since it is such a major change, it needs further deep testing. Pictures below show some of this work.

Johny dos Santos Anastacio (Software Engineer) completed his 11th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. Johny this week worked in the list of urgent priority bugs but he was not able to find what is generating the bugs. Johny solved the bug #3 from the badge bug list “100 hour badge is not being assigned”, he already created the PR and is waiting for review and working on his other task from the Project/Task bug list number #5 “Creating sub-tasks in a WBS doesn’t create a new folder and makes the tasks uneditable”, as soon as possible he will send the PR for review. Pictures below show some of this work.

Aishwarya Kalkundrikar (Full Stack Software Developer) completed her 9th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. Aishwarya worked on setup and installation to access the database this week. She struggled to access the database, but finally, Yiyun helped her and she was able to read the data from the database. Aishwarya found a solution to calculate the total remaining hours for the users by keeping the estimated and logged in hours intact. She needs to do some more testing before she raises a PR for the solution. Also, she found that in many previously removed tasks, a common thing is that the field ‘completedTask’ is marked ‘true’. This can help in making the total remaining hours of previously deleted tasks 0 from the database side. Pictures below show some of this work.

Highest Good Network software, Teacher Permaculture Hubs, One Community Weekly Progress Update #518

Raul Effting (Jr. Front-End Web Developer) completed his 7th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Raul continuously reviewed and approved PRs.

Filipe Santos de Oliveira (Full Stack Developer) completed his 4th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. On 02/14, Filipe found that first and last name popups are in inverted fields in ‘validate input at forgot password page #677’. On 02/15, Filipe reviewed ‘aixiang-fix-make-intangible-hours-editable #267’. The total tangible hours was zero after Filipe saved the intangible/tangible time. After he edited the time from 24h to 19h he returned to the user profile and noticed that tangible time was negative. Filipe asked Kevin to let him know if this negative tangible time is part of his PR or not. On 02/17, he started to work with ‘Task dashboard #558’. He was working to solve the issue related to the WBS task action menu that was removed and that function is not working. On 02/18, the WBS task action menu that was removed and the function was stopped returned to working again. After Filipe identified that the controllerRow function was responsible for that action, he copied the same part of the ‘Fix timelog #535’ script from PR #535 and pasted these lines in the ‘Task dashboard #558’. See below pictures as examples of this work.

Aishwarya Kalkundrikar (Full Stack Software Developer) completed her 8th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Aishwarya found the solution to calculate the total remaining hours for the user correctly. Three cases are covered by her in this solution. Case 1: If the task is deleted from the profile. Case 2: If the task’s status is marked as ‘Complete’. Case 3: If the task is unassigned. She tried initializing the total remaining hours so that it is calculated correctly for previously deleted tasks, but no luck as any specific variable is not changed while previously deleting. Aishwarya also had a word with Yiyun about initializing the total remaining hours directly into the database for old deleted tasks. No solution yet though. Pictures below show some of this work.

Filipe worked this week on the following PRs: 676, 673, 671, 666, 672, 667, 665, 664, 652, 641, 657, 635, 622, 631, 639, 620, 677 and 653. For #666 He found ten results with one ‘m’ on the backend for the word ‘committed’ as requested in that PR. For #672 he tested it and it’s working like in his video sent to the comments section, but he encountered the same issue as @AnishPandita encountered related to the hours option. For #665 Filipe suggested just like @Gukal7 did, that the subs are not clearly defined. To change the font color of the subs, for example, or something that makes it clear that the directory is a sub, for example a branch symbol next to the folder name. For #664 he informed the person everything works fine. The only detail is the same as @one-community and @Gukal7 mentioned in the comments section about changing ‘until’ to ‘through’. In #641 he noticed some issues with different page resolutions. The cards on the Reports page are shifting position at a specific page size. Also, on the Team page where there are some pie charts, the whole page is not flexible. In #635 when he added the intangible hours in the volunteering times tab, an error popup appeared. When Filipe returned to the main page, the box for the current week remained reset. When he added the main intangible time, the task was added to the task box and timelog, but the current week box kept with zero. After he returned to the volunteering times in the profile, there was an addition to the manual time added in the main with the time manually added in the volunteering times. In #622 Filipe informed the same question as Rafael did that the “Total submitted: 0” is not working. In #631, when he changed the page resolution the ‘table’ was flexible but its child items were not. In #639 Filipe tested this PR and it’s showing the last three weeks correctly, but he ran into the same problem as Raul ran, a bug when it shows the summaries. It could be due to a number of things such as incorrect data being passed to the component, a mistake in the component’s rendering logic, or an issue with the component’s state or props. For #620 he tested It and it seems to be working correctly. It’s showing the blue squares as well. In #653 Filipe identified that it is not possible to alternate between stopwatch and countdown. See below pictures as examples of this work.

Anish Pandita (Software Engineer) completed his 3rd week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week Anish completed another set of Frontend PR Reviews which included PR #673, #674 #675, #676, #677. The major tasks in the PRs was checking if the text container correctly wraps the content, testing responsiveness of the hamburger menu (derivative of old PR) and verifying if the forgot password form has correct input validation if the user doesn’t enter a name or inputs wrong email format. The PR workload was a bit less this week, therefore Anish utilized the work time to refresh his React skills. He studied the component building and other styling techniques prevalent in React code style. Practiced CRUD (Create, Rename, Update, Delete) operations in React and how to communicate with a database. He ran into some issues and errors while practicing and solved them successfully. See pictures below as examples of this work.
