    One point of view on Supportnet, which makes sense, is that if the SimsApplicationSetup is re-run it will recreate the problem. Probably not worth the risk.

    Just as well we held this back from Birmingham schools. Have put the new release on the mirror now, will authorise it in a couple of days.

    Couldn't anyone just find a workstation which hasn't been upgraded (I'm sure there'd be one in a fair few schools, especially as Staff have been on half term holiday and probably haven't even logged into SIMS yet) and then copy the Quick Letter Template back over to all of the other workstations which have been upgraded?

    Please can you expand on the Fees Billing issue as we use it extensively and a heads up would be useful, i'd rather hold off the upgrade if it's going to be painful.

    No, you've missed the point. The Spring release (3) will overwrite the quickletter template in the local SIMS directory with the default Capita one. So if you've added a custom one, say a schools default, you would have had to manually copy it each time, thus having a copy someone else on the network (which would be safe). The idea of the quick letter template is that say, the attendance officer could have a different one to say, the the head teacher.

    Having said all that, that's all machine-specific, so if you share a computer you can't do that. Capita did however, put in the Autumn(??) release the ability to store them in your My Docs folder, which wouldn't be touched at all!!

    The re-release (4) just has the bit of code that said, overwrite the local copy changed to copy if does not exist. Nothing else, as far as we the public are aware

    I'm setting up a test server for it now. Anyone had issues with Fees Billing, as mentioned earlier...?
