GSL Solutions is pleased to announce the availability of a new version of the software that delivers The Digital Bell, HillTop, and Frontrunner services. This release of the software is considered to be an incremental release and contains minor feature improvements and a number of bug fixes.

What You'll Notice As Being Different

  • School Lunch Planning -- This feature allows school district food managers to create a generic breakfast or lunch menu for a user specified number of days. Once created, the food schedule can then be applied to a calendar starting at any date. Options are included to permit holidays and school closing days to either be skipped or to have the food program delayed until school is once again back in session. The school district food manager can build a database of food items to be offered and has full control over the nutritional information associated with each food item. [Digital Bell]
  • High School Student Course Registration -- New functionality has been added that allows high school students to register for next year's courses by logging into the Digital Bell. The student's current teachers can make course recommendations for their existing students which the students will then see when they are making their course selections for the next year. [Digital Bell]
  • User Profiles -- Each user of the system now has a user profile. This profile contains basic contact information for the user including phone, email, and a photo. A role is associated with each profile and this controls what the user can do. User profile information is displayed as a part of each user's dashboard.
