    Import into sims.net diary

    Hi

    Is there any way to import into sims.net diary from outlook preferably, but I'll take anything.

    I know you can export so I am hoping there is some kind of reverse function as well.

    At the moment the school calendar is done in Outlook, but it would be so handy to have it in sims.

    Thanks

    Phil

    Only way I can think of is to use SIMS then export and import into Outlook. Don't think you can import, you might as part of SLG2, but I don't have it to try.

    I did hear SIMS should be intergrating with Outlook, not heard anything more then a rumour tho.

    On the Capita Support site in the User Posts / File Sharing / Download area File 280 is an import/export executable for the SIMS Calendar/ Outlook 2003.

    A*se. Can't get it to work. Made by Dan Clarke, who's no longer at Capita. Anyone got a contact (his blueyonder account is dead)?

    Did anyone ever manage to import an outlook calender into sims.net?

    If so please can you share how to do it as it would be a great help.

    Cheers

    I have used Dan Clarke's Report (well it's my own now but it originated with Dan - now there was a very knowledable SIMS user!) to export data out of the SIMS Diary, but not the reverse.
    The information has to be input somewhere so a suggestion could be to start with inputting it into the SIMS Diary and then export for other uses!

    We used to put everything in the SIMS diary, but it's just not flexible enough now, so it all just goes straight onto the Exchange public calendar(s).
    Stopped using bulletins as well.
    Everything that used to go there just lives in Exchange or our intranet.
    If it ever integrated with Outlook, that would be useful, but the functions are more likely to be taken over by SLG and that should automatically take the basic data from the diary (term dates).
