    SIMS: Unknown photo appearing on past pupil's details

    It's been a weird day and this problem topped it all.

    We had someone call wanting information on a past pupil who left in 2001. No problem, we could do this. However, when we brought up this pupil's details, we found a photo in her details?!?

    1. This photo wasn't imported by any of the administration staff.

    2. We didn't have photos in 2001.

    3. SIMS didn't have that ability in 2001!

    So… how has it got there??
    What's slightly weirder is that the person in the photo doesn't even look like she's wearing our uniform.

    Stumped me slightly.

    Did this pupil subsequently become a member of staff? If both accounts (Student and Staff) were consolidated, a photo may have been added in a later year when that person was a staff member. They may have then left again a year or so later.

    We have a couple of members of staff who are ex-pupils. When their staff record was created the photo they had as a pupil was attached to that record. Obviously we then replaced this with a Staff photo!

    This photo is of the pupil probably when she was in Y7. We're not even sure it's her from the blazer. The only relationship she has with the school is that she is a past pupil.
