We are running SIMS with Nova T6 - we want to be able to display timetables produced by T6 on iPads. Can we do this, if so how?
simple solution would be to print to PDF/Tiff
Use commandreporter.exe to run a timetable dump in xml, then set a script to parse this and output it to a webpage (we do similar).
Thanks for the replies - especially @3s-gtech I'd love to learn more about how you do that - not familiar with commandreporter.exe guess it's in SIMS somewhere and a copy of the script would be very welcome please.

Commandreporter is indeed built into SIMS. You create the report in SIMS as usual, then call it via this command line utility, which runs your report. You can call it via task scheduler too. Will find the code, it's not too complex.
We've publish ours to moodle via mis integrator from overnetdata
Depends what you want to do with it. You could take a photo. Or you could buy into SLG and a have a fully interactive app that displays it and lets you open the classes and take a register. Or many other things in between. If its just for viewing, some staff make an image of it as their background.
We use Salamander Soft to expert the next 6 weeks from SIMS to our Office 365 exchange calendar. This also exports any cover as well as doing lots of other things! It also works with locally hosted exchange that both integrate directly with the iPad calendar.
Nay @matt40k the newer ones are thin enough to make fantastic doorstops as well. That said I seem to use mine a lot. - especially compared with the Toshiba Encore Tablet I got in for testing which in my opinion was a complete waste of money as it just doesn't compare, or come to that function as a device that's in any way, shape or form of use to me or Donald Duck even!
