August 2022

GreatSchools introduced a format change to the time stamp element in parent reviews. These changes consist of:

  • Inserting the letter T in an empty character space before the time stamp
  • Removing the space between the time stamp and the GMT offset
  • Inserting a colon between the hour and minute in the GMT offset

The format change was made in both the local-gs-parent-review-feed-flat.txt and local-gs-parent-review-feed-flat.xml files. The character length of the record was not altered as a result of these format changes.

The following illustration shows the difference between the previous (top) and new (bottom) formats:
