    SIMS profiles

    Hi there

    An interesting one from our SIMS operator.
    She is about to move some groups around, but a reporting session in Profiles is open.
    A group is moving to their nesxt teacher, but their previous teacher is still completing reports for them.

    If she moves the year 7 groups, will the teachers still be able to access their old groups for completing/amending reports and will the correct name of the teacher show on the report?

    If not, what's the work around? If there is one!!

    Cheers, in anticipation

    I thought Profiles could only have one teacher per class in terms of marking, that was always a limitation that stopped my school from moving from AM.

    I think the limitation is per a session or something like that isn't it. So once the session is done and complete, you can move groups around, until then i think you're stuck. But i'm not sure.
    Sivadam is a profiles person, and i'm sure there are others out there.

    No he ain't! He is the SIMS person. Profiles is just a tiny bit of the system that I am responsible for ........... !!!

    In answer to the OP. You can write ANY Profile Report for ANY Pupil, who has ever been in ANY Group, irrespective of when the pupils are moved! The only proviso to this is the start and end date that you have included in the Profiles Session.

    Check out post 601 in User Posts, File Sharing on SupportNet for further details. Please note that in the example quoted I had set up the Profiles Session for the whole Year. This does not have to be the case if you want to cut down the number of options such as those described and shown. However, you must select dates that will include every possible scenario that needs to be included. As a Timetabler who changes the timetable on a very regular basis I can vouch for how hard that can be. I obviously know when the changes are made but I do not automatically know which stage in a rotation a department wants to report on! Hence I 'play safe' and the department can then make their own choice easily.
