SIMS Permissions - Print Timetables
I want to create a small custom security froup that allows access to the "Reports | Print Timetables" feature without making them a "timetabler", i.e. giving them acces to nova or the ability to moose up anything timetable related.
Whilst I am fine with the setting up of the security group itself what I don't know is which security key(s) to enable to allow access to that menu item. Any ideas?

Curriculum --> Timetable Printing --> View & Edit.

Stupid... checked the permission spreadsheet, appears only Curricular Manager and Timetabler can see it.
Still created a new user, add them to Class Teacher and School Administrator and it appeared. Me things I would say create a new security group. Assuming you want this menu option.

You're welcome - & I don't think even Capita understand their security permissions. We're assured it will become better in System Manager 6(?).......

Did they tell you this on the 1st April?

SysMan 7, which will be .net... which keeps... getting... moved... back GRRRRR
If you want it in the new system, I would post it on here and SupportNet then hopefully the product manager will see and include it in the new version, otherwise create an CR. Just let us know the CR so it doesn't get "lost"

CR would be a sensible idea... Posting the CR on supportnet helps too!

I've logged a CR for my permissions issue and antoher one I have found. Have a look at
If your board Vote for my SIMS Change Requests if your bored.
Would it be an insult if I logged "Provide adaquete and usefull instructions on using SIMS permissions, including a full list of what all those security keys do and how to enable each menu item" as a change request?

Not at all - Making their permissions documentation more alligned to the actual permissions would be a rather useful addition!

Sometime ago I found on a forum - either this one or supportnet the permissions required for printing timetables - sorry I can't credit the original poster as I didn't record it
All People||Group memberships||View
Student||Timetable and... ||Record/View/Edit (all of them)
Staff|| Timetable and...|| View x2
Curriculum||Timetable Printing|| View AND Edit
School Management||Pastoral Structure|View (I think you need this one)

I have just logged in as a teacher (with standard Class Teacher Permissions) and CAN print a timetable.
Also, our Admin Assistants have always been able to print timetables.

Can I ask where you are going to print timetables as I cant get this working with class teacher or admin assistant rights.
I want staff to print via the wizard from reports - print timetables as per the original post and have also tried setting permissions - Curriculum --> Timetable Printing --> View & Edit. with no joy.
