I tried to edit the start date in the gibbonApplicationForm table so that I could bring the 'Start Date ’ back on the test system. However this did not reflect on the UI. How can I bring the Start date back for all students through a sql command?
dataStart in gibbonApplicationForm is used temporarily and data is transferred into various tables once the student is admitted.
You may want to edit dateStart in table gibbonPerson instead.
You can also access it through Gibbon:
Admin> User Admin> Manage Users> Edit
Notice that dateStart is a required field in the student application form only. Inside ‘Manage Users’ it’s optional.
Therefore you can simply delete it’s content which should work just fine in your case.
