Paradise Valley (Arizona Court) has been added to all 10 schools. Tested the signup.
Jo had a problem printing from quickbooks but it ended up being a lack of disk space on drive c of the server. I freed up space and she was able to print again no problems
Made account and moved it forward for Arizona/Chris
When editing the account for Arizona/Chris I noticed one part of the control panel a little slow, I resolved that.
I added Paradise Valley to all of the Quickbooks (as a vendor) for the 10 schools. I know Jo could do that but I wanted to make sure there are no problems when she goes to print the checks so I added it to each myself making a list of each one I added it to, making sure I added it to them all.
Made Pinterest business accounts for each school
Worked on Texas conversion tracking

Parses the license numbers then adds a new record into the log table for registrations, completions, and now this new record which says especially that for sure the person for no doubt is registered in Arizona system
Tested printing and envelope fitting for Texas court letter
Resolved issue with 8az registration audit
Updated 055 and 066 registration audit so that they will load because they were so behind they no longer would display.
Went through ran reconciliation reports for all schools, removed the paid students, sent final reports to Marla. The reconciliation reports still have to be hand checked because they may have duplicate students from other schools, they have students who did actually pay but are still on the report anyway (not sure why). It will take awhile to audit all of those reports to put together a final list of unpaid students
Researched FOIA law and found a form letter, I put it into the system content table just in case we want to use it for Texas courts. Often initially the first person in the court you contact has no idea what the defensive driving student list is (and some might call it something else).
Yesterday I moved the new printer for Jo but didn't move back the old printer back to the Payless desk, so I did that first thing so the payless desk could print.

Send affiliate checks, edit the affiliate letter before sending, test that letter prints out on printer so address shows through the envelope window.
Setup letter to go to Texas courts, fit the letter into windowed envelopes, print out to the 1,785 Texas courts that I already imported into SQL Server. Added bit field to database to fllag when letter is mailed so it is not resent.
Added table to database for social, yelp, and other review urls by website so that when we send affiliate letters these urls can be included for customer affiliates to go to and post reviews, share, etc to make more referral sales.
