    Setting up SIMS profiles 7 for reporting

    Morning all,

    We have decided to use SIMS profiles next academic year to produce the students academic reports.

    I'm just about to start setting it up ready for use. Has anyone got any tips or known issues that I should know before I begin?

    How easy is it to use?

    Cheers

    Dan

    My tips:
    • This will put a lot of pressure on the co-ordinator as they will have to chase staff they will need SLT backing
    • Make sure comment banks don't contain lots of words that mean satisfactory
    • Make sure each comment is highly focused
    • Think of specific students to try out the comments on before the banks are closed


    I'd ask the same question on SupportNet as there are a lot of experienced users keen to help.

    Dan,
    If I were you I would try and find a school, that is fairly local and successfully uses Profiles, to visit. It is an excellent product but it is not easy to just pick up and use with no pre-knowledge.
    Have you been on one of the trining courses?
    Afraid we are a long way away but I am sure there must be a willing school that is closer to you.

    The biggest tip I would give is once you have setup the reports make sure all your data is right before you make it live to staff..... once its live you can't add missing subjects etc.

    Give yourself a good few hours when setting up the templates, its relatively easy to do but a bit boring add mailmerge after mailmerge.
