If anyone is interested, Capita's ADP is available as a standalone product even if you don't want to use SLG, but why you would pay to have yourself tied down to a limited format for creating usernames, and not be able to use the admission number is beyond me.

Can't be much to adapt it to pull any student field in to the scripts it uses. I'd say build a provisioning script oneself... If it were easier to get at the sims tables... Our school messed with that with some good successes, with the stumbling block being getting at the tables. Even had it disabling accounts if they 'left' out testing database.

Yeah, lots of new features, probably mostly only of interest to me running 4 buildings with users transferred between them, still not bothered making it read an xml report instead of raw sql access though.

I'd recommend @rpwillis from SalamanderSoft. I did put a propose forward to have it as part of our admin build but it didn't happen. Shame as it's a great tool.
Not sure why you would want to force little kids to remember admission numbers however @vikpaw!! Each onto their own!

@rpwillis did a load of work for me yesterday

Now, it's the same for 18 years, or more, and is usually a simple 4 digit number i.e. <2digit prefix><1234>. it's printed on their ID cards, in their planners, it's the library barcode, and teachers can see it in the registers if they forget. It was easier to make that change than it was to get teachers used to using Office 2010!
I think of it as building skills for the future as remembering a 4-digit pin is going to be a main part of their life. In fact here, we have 6 digit pins so it's even more accurate in reality

Ah k, could see how 100's of Muhammads might put a spanner in the works

I went with year of birth, first name, initial of surname, and then add 1, 2, 3 on the end if duplicates exist. 96JoeB
