    Check the version number when you login to SIMS? 7.110 is the latest version.

    Your support unit manages releases. Support units generally want to make sure that they understand the new features before releasing them to the schools they support.

    BTW around 1000 schools automatically upgrade on release night.

    So, back to my question - has anyone installed September and found any issues?

    Nice to know Phil - now if only i can just convince Salford! cos it was damn handy when a "fault code" appeared!

    Only done it on the test data. No problems so far. Waiting till the sysman at a school to get back off from holiday so I can hear some live data feedback before we roll it out.

    How do you get "test" data for SIMS?

    Capita release two test dataset, a primary and a secondary. Green Abbey and Waters Edge. I think it's only for partners such as LEA, business partners etc.

    Look on SupportNet, that's where I get it from.

    I'm confused (nothing new there then) - our 'Sims Lady' was told there was the September update to do so I've been on Solus tonight and there's nothing there waiting.

    Has anyone else in Warwickshire done the Sept update yet or have the LEA not released it yet?

    We release to support units and they then chose when to release to their schools.

    Sep ugrade

    Upgrade done here last week. 3 problems fixed and (touch wood) no apparent problems.
    One minor problem when upgrading was that a couple of files already on the server and due to be overwritten were read only and needed that attrib removed for the upgrade to work but as it had happened before the panic was shortlived!
