    Re: SIMS.net November

    I updated last night from home (sent a email at 9pm just to tell everyone how hard I am working).

    Can't see much changed except the pre admissions and a few tweaks here and there, although I don't use it that much.

    Seems a slow update though with all those stupid skipped files it seems to go though.

    @Geoff, Its the October release you can't roll out (capita have withdrawn its rollout) Think Westfield will be issuing there usual crap to you on the 15th of this month.

    Do you use Marksheet entry in SIMS.net? Do you know if the bug where marksheets only save the first mark, is resolved? The release note makes no mention, CES claim it is fixed.

    thanks

    October release broke our data. It's with Capita in Bedford now having been escalated to the development team!!! A week on and still no further to solving!! 8O

    Re: SIMS.net November

    It seems to have gone well for a change, but will have to wait until next week to find any new bugs.

    The automated database upgrade failed (again) and naturally CES insist it must be our ISP, proxy server or AV at fault.

    How any unsucessful upgrades? Just so we can see a comparison ....

    We do ours on Tuesday and we are eager to get to grips with Course Manager (ok ... I am eager to get to grips with it as it will save me a shed load of work in AM7)

    The upgrade notifies our server so far there have been 45 signature failures that is usually bandwidth. 14 cases of the database failing to upgrade have been reported.
