    Student Photos - Who's missing?

    Hi

    Just a quick one - is there a quick way to find out who has not got a photo in Sims.net? I've been asked to a photo of all the kids that are missing and insert them into Sims!!

    Can't think of a quick way but you could always produce a Year Report with Photographs on. With the photos reduced by a big %age, obviously, else it might take a very very long time to run and could even time out!

    Design this report:

    OnRoll, Focus Students.
    Select the fields 'Student Name' and 'Photo Available' (both under Students category)
    Filter the report in the next screen where 'Year Group' = Prompt at Runtime and 'Photo Available' = False
    Output it as an RTF Report.

    This will give you a list of students who are missing a photo in SIMS. And you can pick a year group to look at.

    There's a built-in report from Capita (CES Reporting Services) called "No photograph report" based on students.

    Just run that and click 'select all' on both parameters to see all in school who have no photograph.

    I've made my own report only for the Staff Area, where i don't think SIMS has a report.

    There's no point clogging up the system with your own reports unless you have to

    PS if there's lots missing, you can use the bulk importer, but it needs to be licensed.
    Just need to name the photos by admission number, i had a script to do this based on their name. :O)

    I had missed that one.
    I see it's been there since November 2009!

    Way longer than that Mike, November must have been the last update on your system.
    My current version was updated October 3rd.
