    Don't have that luxury unfortunately as most of our Secondary Schools use Exams Organizer

    Doesn't really give us much of a window to get all the upgrades completed!

    in the past under support from our LEA i did it about a week before results days and then waited for patches.... if they appeared.

    would it be better to bring this forward then as we use exams organiser

    It's done overnight automatically by our LEA. Plus we don't do results day here, middle school. 😄

    Today's the day:

    SIMS 2014 Summer Release update

    We have completed our investigations into the outstanding problems raised with the SIMS 2014 Summer release and can confirm that we will be issuing a new SIMS 2014 Summer release to resolve these issues.

    An updated SIMS 2014 Summer 2 (7.159) release will be made available by COB Monday 7th July.
    It will incorporate fixes for the following areas:

    • Reporting Engine.
      Reports with a blank column in a sub report cause the report to error when it is run.
    • Assessment Templates.
      Assessment Templates that are exported from the Summer release cannot be imported if the Template includes Aspects with supporting Result Sets.
    • Assessment Reports.
      If an Individual Report is run with the option ticked for “Hide Rows with no Results”, the report will still display the row but it will be blank.
    • Post 16 Return.
      The Post 16 return crashes if you select to open a Learning Activities record where the medium field for the Learning Activity is blank.

    We recommend that all sites upgrade to this release. We will be de-authorising the original Summer release from sites immediately to prevent them from upgrading to the incorrect version.
    We apologise for any inconvenience that this might cause.

    Regards,
    Jonathan Wood

    Not great, looking at previous form - there's no money to be made here.

    Prey to the SIMS gods in the sky that they don't mess this one up! I've far too much to do as it is.

    SIMS Summer 2014

    Nope Today is not the day.... more bugs found!

    Update 07/07/2014


    We have successfully completed our work resolving the 4 fixes mentioned previously however we have decided to hold off releasing the Summer 2 update tonight whilst we investigate reports of failures with Timetable imports from Nova-T6.


    We are aware that many of you will want to complete your roll-out of the Summer release before the end of term but we hope you will understand that we cannot risk any errors in the timetable import at such a key time of year.


    I will post an update tomorrow morning (Tuesday) on SupportNet.


    We apologise for any inconvenience that this delay might cause.

    Regards,

    Jonathan Wood
