  • 18B
    • PST Review. RickLively reported that webtest should be up-to-date. The creation of a science review type caused problems with technical reviewers on the My Reviews page. These should now be fixed. MarkClaussen will have a quick look. There was some discussion about the time it takes to upload the review types. We agreed to (1) investigate increasing the time out period which causes problems in other areas; and (2) investigating updating the database in a different way to improve performance. DanaBalser reported that he provided an SRP chair with the link to webtest to test the new software; no feedback yet. Also, the documentation has been updated.
    • SRP Recruitment. MarkClaussen reported that there is one vacancy left in SFM. AmyMioduszewski is now tying to find someone even if they are temporary and has started to ask NRAO folks. They have discussed candidates.
  • Session-less PST. There was much discussion of the Session-less PST software. Overall, the consensus was that the new tool is confusing and not a good step forward. The goal was that the Session-less PST would be a step toward the future tool set which is planned to be similar to ALMA. But folks felt that the current software still had ties to Sessions that would confuse our users. Some specific issues: (1) overhead needs to be broken up into different parts; (2) overhead is tied to resources yet in reality also depends on sources; (3) integration time is connected to the resource but often will depend on the sources; and (4) does not handle a common case of multiple sources with multiple resources with different details.
  • AOB
    • Helpdesk Ticket. ToneyMinter noted a helpdesk ticket about deleting a proposal. He answered the ticket but it does not appear the proposal in question was deleted. Nobody else can recall this ticket so ToneyMinter will send us the ticket number. It might have been sent to a different department.
    • TTA Meeting. No meeting next week which is the proposals deadline (1 Feb 2018).
