    User Defined Fields and SHowing in Registers

    Hi,

    As a school we run a scheme where parents can donate to provide their children with a laptop/ipod/ipad.

    I want to be able to register their involvement in SIMS, and can do this by creating a UDF, however I would like to be able right click on the column headers in a register and select my UDF, like you can add gender etc.

    Any help would be really appreciated

    I don't know whether this would be possible in Registers - have you considered storing it in an aspect and using Assessment Manager for this?

    Hi rh91UK,

    I did think about an Aspect but really wanted it in Lesson Monitor. If I can not get it in lesson monitor I will use an Aspect.

    Thank you

    Just had a dig and I don't think you can do it ... might be worth a post on SupportneT? SupportNet

    Adding stuff like that would be a change request, and a big one at that, as you are not asking for a default field e.g. nationality, which i would like to see on registers, you want a custom one, so it needs to be open ended and user (school configurable).

    As using aspects as workarounds is quite a common solution, i'd go with that, and put it on a general marksheet applied to all reg groups. providing this is a pastoral thing. The marksheet can then be made available via the tabs on the take register screen, and so be close to hand. I think those tabs are there for attendance, it's not just limited to lesson monitor users, but it might be.

    You could then use the same marksheet for other transient fields, like brought in trip money, or paid for mufti day...
