    Lesson Monitor

    Hi All,

    After the summer upgrade our Attendance officer has informed me that when she has to edit a mark for whatever reason when she clicks on the save it takes ages (as she puts it) well a couple of minutes to actually finish.

    I do understand that she has it open as the whole school and that it must write all the data back to SQL but surely it shouldn't take that long!

    Anyone have a similar issue and how did they solve it or is it a known issue?

    Her computer is Windows 7 pro dual core 4Gb Ram and has been great she tells me until this last Sims update.

    I will be looking into the full process between the client and SQL but thought I would just ask the question.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm assuming use of the edit marks screen right?
    It always took me ages for the last few years if you are looking at a large range of data.
    I'm not on summer yet so you never know what fun that brings.
    I found to prevent crash outs, it was better to load them year at a time , which is a bit more clicking but less time wasted on crashes.
    If I filled in multiple year groups it would take a while to load, and be greyed out, then filling in grades and also saving was all laggy.

    This has been an issue for a considerable time.

    We have reported it via Cases a number of times and increased the Attendance workstations spec to a ridiculously high standard. We are still trying to isolate the real cause but at this time of the year the problem is minimal.

    The problem is made worse by:-
    • Continual use throughout the day - we believe there is a 'memory' leak. It even crashes SIMS at times - especially later in the year.
    • Using Schoolcomms at the same time as editing a whole school (we do a final a check before sending off the first day Absence Texts).
    • Progression through the year as the Attendance part of the database gets bigger.
