Previous teacher name on reports when student moves class
Another season of reporting, another SIMS headache!
When I'm generating Individual Reports, the teacher names displayed are for the first person who taught the child in that subject this curriculum year, NOT their current teacher as you would expect.
Does anybody know a fix that doesn't involve me entering teacher names manually in to aspects (again)?
Also, is there a good reason for this? I can't imagine a situation you would want this to be the default behaviour... it should be the teacher of the student on the effective date of the report, surely!?

There is a separate box lower down on the generate screen that has a 'effective date for class teacher / class detail' i think, and that defaults to something. try changing that.
EDIT: this should work for rotated classes. If it's a manual rotation, in that your timetable just doubles up the teachers and then does the rotation manually, then only the 'Main Teacher' name will ever show. That's from NT6.

Not here I'm afraid Vik... I have effective date (which makes no difference to the name displayed) and attendance reporting period (which only changes the attendance)

oh no, i think that's it. the effective date, should do it, and it says that's when class teacher names come from. if it doesn't work, it might be due to the way you've rotated things within the subject. check the timetable.

I understand what you're saying about subject rotations; it's for that reason we manually enter D&T teacher names for instance; but this is an actual move, mainly they are moving classes because they've been moved up/down a set, but some students have actually physically moved to the other school site, and been put on a completely different timetable as a result: SIMS still pulls through the teacher names from the start of the year as opposed to current

hmm, check curriculum assignment screens for any overlaps too. there could be an issue with dual membership of a group.
i think we had something similar last year, when tutor groups were all juggled a few weeks into the year. it still showed the original tutor, rather than the new one, unless i manually went it and fixed the history.

It's not going to make you happy necessarily, but may explain things better than i did.
