    Import Vivo behaviour data into SIMS?

    Hi all,

    First time posting here and have a brief question.

    Our school has been looking into Vivo Miles. I can see that it is certainly possible to integrate with SIMS (SIMS to Vivo) but I cannot see any mention of the reverse.

    Would we be able to export data from Vivo and then import it into our SIMS system?

    Thanks

    You're probably best of asking that to Vivo themselves or Capita.

    Usually import to SIMS is harder and costly for the third party, but if they are a Capita partner and being promoted, maybe they have that facility or could add it in the future.

    Edit: in terms of you doing it, there is no way to import behaviour in bulk, that i know of, for the end user.

    We haven't got it, but when I looked into it 18 months it wasn't possible then.

    We use SIMS and Vivo and as far as I know there's no way to export from Vivo into SIMS. The link to Vivo is great though, as staff can reward pupils directly from taking a Register and the points go into Vivo automatically. We also use Frog vle that has a handy Vivo widget that uses SSO to log kids straight into Vivo. It also displays their Vivo total on thier Frog homepage.

    So it sounds like it's not currently possible which is a shame, but I will try and get in touch with Vivo as vikpaw suggested just to be 100% sure before we move on.
    Thanks for the replies.

    Sorry, didn't read the second part of your question. It might be possible to manually export from Vivo.as it allows you to export .csv files of totals etc. Not too sure how you would go about importing this into SIMS

    We use Vivo and I thought this was not available yet? How did you or do you get this set up?

    It was set up by Vivo for us when we moved to Sims. Give them a call as their support is usually very good.

    Apparently there are only a few schools trialling this and it has not been offered to all Vivo schools yet.

    Love a typo page that the link above goes to.

    3) The school must be using Windows Server 2008/2008 R2/2003 – 2013 is not currently supported
    Didn't think there was a Server 2013

    We use it with SIMS here. We only export from SIMS to VIVO though. We have encoureged staff to use SIMS and any achievement points called pulled through nightly to VIVO.

    hhmm well I think for the write back the other way round, Vivo to SIMS, you need to reward just through Vivo, and this will then feed into a field in SIMS? I'm hoping to incorporate it into individual student reports in SIMS.

    Hi,

    We're updating the typo, Sorry it should state Server 2012.

    We sent out the emails to our SIMS schools concerning the write back yesterday.


    As stated in the attached post to our insights blog there are a few caveats to the setup of SIMS WB:
    1) The school must not be awarding through SIMS

    2) The school must not be processing penalties in Vivo
    3) The school must be using Windows Server 2008/2008 R2/2003 – Server 2012 is not currently supported

    4) The school must be using SIMS version 7.152 or higher


    If you have any queries concerning this ask away.
