    Re: Cover Information in SIMS.net

    Hello,

    I was just wondering if there's a way to display Cover Information within SIMS.net as soon as users log on?

    At the moment we use NovaT for cover.

    Suggestions welcome.

    Cheers!

    PS: Just in case we are running the March main release of SIMS.net (7.116).

    I may be wrong but I thought if the member of staff was on cover it appeared in their timetable bar.

    Yes please.

    Such that certain or all members of staff can see 'at a glance' what the cover situation is.

    Thanks.

    You can publish the Cover Summary to html and publish this on a shared drive or intranet.
    Those on Cover have their assignment automatically written to their timeline on SIMS Homepage.

    I would advise you to move from NT4 to Cover7 for September.
    NT4 Cover is no longer supported by Capita and will be switched off in the not too distant future.

    I echo Sivadam's comments: You need to stop using Nova T4 for cover and start using Cover 7 from the beginning of the academic year.

    I'd get in touch with your local support unit to see if they can provide some 1:1 Cover 7 tuition for your cover supervisor over the holidays.

    For the Cover 7 handbook, click on the Documentation button on the SIMS Home Page, then click Timetabling and Curriculum followed by Cover 7 in SIMS. The perfect seaside reading material!
