Fundamentally 'choice' in the market keeps suppliers 'honest' and when choice is very limited and difficult, then suppliers tend to become arrogant and customer service levels decline rapidly. After all "there's no need to keep customers happy ... where else are they going to go!"
There are a couple of reports attached in the thread which will show all teachers of that student. I now use a modified version of the one with a Macro that takes the emails and puts them into Outlook.
I checked the Send Message feature, and still cannot see an option that will only show Teachers of the day, so i guess it didn't make it to the independent version or i'm not following the correct route.
One word of warning, by default on our system staff are not allowed to see emails of other staff as they are stored in the personnel section. The report worked for me with the email output, but for anyone without permission it fails. I eventually realised this and modified it so it brings out the first and last name, concatenates then and drops them into Outlook. This then relies on the outlook directory look up. You can just click Check Names to speed it up, and usually it finds them all. The only time it gets funny is when people have decided to change their known by name, which actually happens here a lot. e.g. Steve prefers to be called Rob etc.
We use VB.net to create an exchange address list for each child. It calls command reporter which runs a list of each child and each of their teachers. It then calls a second report which lists all the students and their form tutor/s. It then matches the teachers names to their AD account and adds them to the list in a separate address book in exchange. It has just been re-written to work with AD2008R2 and Exchange 2010, because the exchange upgrade broke the previous system.
