When saving an academic year after changing the grade comment entry from Freeform to Numeric, users may receive the error: Freeform comments have been entered for this Academic Year. These must be removed before changing to numeric comment entry.
The academic year cannot be changed from Freeform to Numeric until no freeform comments exist in either Registrar's Office or Faculty Access for the Web. The comments must be deleted from both places before the academic year can be changed.
Manually delete or globally delete all comments from The Education Edge and Faculty Access for the Web.
