Perplexed by Passion: Planning for a Better #GeniusHour
Just last week, a tenth grade student turned to me and said, “Do we ever get to do anything creative this year?” While I’d certainly challenge his assertion about creation and creativity in our class, I knew what he was asking--when are we going to do somet...

Add-on : Geocode  - 
 
Just relaunched theeducationcalendar.com using Awesome Table + Geocode and I'm having some tooltip issues that I can't figure out.

My tooltips aren't showing up except for the full address line, and the custom edit / HTML will not edit or save. When I click open map, I get directions to update the deprecated view of Awesome Table, but this is a brand new table (made last week). There's nothing for me to updates; I'm logged in and use it in the new Sites.

I assume I broke some sort of link by adding conflicting programming or functions throughout the sheet but can't seem to figure out what. Would very much appreciate any insight into tooltips--my site depends on it. Thanks in advance.

I ended up rebuilding it - pulled the data into a fresh Sheet and reran it all. Works fine now but I'm not sure where the problem was. Thanks.

Rethinking Resolutions: The Impact of Good Teaching On New Year’s Resolution
It’s that time of year again. 2016 has come and gone, and I hope you had a wonderful start to the new year. And I hope that all of your dreams, ambitions, and resolutions come true. 45% of Americans usually make new year’s resolutions and another 17% do so ...

Add-on : Geocode  - 
 
Working on combining new and old form responses to an Awesome Table Geocode map that works on form submit.

What's the best practice for combining results from two different sheets AND using the form trigger to Geocode for new responses?

Would love some insight here. Thanks!

Question on CSS (I think)...

I'm trying to resize my column with and want to add line breaks in the headers (Proposal Date over 2 lines instead of one).

Any tips on how to do this? I'm reading through the custom css documentation but it's my first try with this so would love some tips of where to start.

Working on streamlining some of sheets backend for an Awesome Table Geocode setup with around 1,000 rows of data from a Google Form.

I'm using some formulas with Copy Down now, but started to play with ARRAYFORMULA functions, too. With this, I don't need copy down anymore but I'm wondering if one will help the Awesome Table site run faster than the other.

Any insight?
