Outsourcing Web/coding work
Hi can anyone suggest a company/person who's able to design/code a basic "pupil contact recording system" in classic asp running from an Access db. It's to be hosted internally on Server 2003R2. I would normally do it but due to the daily stuff I'm rapidly running out of time!! It's to record any contact that the staff have with a pupil and or any agencies involved with a pupil.
Not sure if this should be in wed dev or coding!

What MIS do you use? Most MIS's can do this.

The problem we have is the unit isn't a "mainstream" school and when I asked the LEA MIS Support about adding custom fields to the MIS (SIMS.net) I just got a "No it can't be done" hence this method. Now it's a while since I had anything major to do with SIMS.net so I took them at their word (I knew that was my first mistake!). If anyone has some pointers into adding custom fields into SIMS.net for the pupil contact then thats great, other then that I could do with the web front end and the db doing..

Yeh SIMS.Net can do all that. It's our census day today so it's all a bit crazy but for custom fields, look in Tools -> Setups -> User Defined Fields.
I'm not sure if you want to log contact numbers, or the actual calls (I.e. Mr Smith rang Mrs Penny today about little Bob because he's forgotten his homework).
If you want to log contact numbers, see the Family/Home section in the student record.
If you want to log actual history... im sure there's a way to do it but i cant remember off the top of my head.
(Then again you could add a custom field of a textarea type if it's not supported).
Otherwise if your still want a custom solution... afraid I dont know anyone

Check out Brightcode - they've done quite a bit of this sort of work and I'd definitely recommend them.

A simple database in access can be set up, so that all you do is import the students and then log when a problem happens. you can then define when you need to contact pupils parents etc etc as part of the SQL code. should be simple enough
