SIMS. CTF, Destination
Just a quickie - very elementary...
Myself and a couple of office staff were trying to make a whole school CTF from SIMS.Net yesterday and we got stuck on the "Destination" (final) column on the grid which appears. We wanted to set the same destination for all pupils (the CTF is for a third party program, not for sending anywhere external to the school). Quite apart from the annoying fact that there seems to be no "other location" option, as there is in CMIS, we could only discover how to set each pupil's destination individually, which of course would take ages, having to do it for 400 kids separately.
Can anyone tell me how to choose a destination for the first child and then set that same destination for all the following entries, preferably with one or two deft clicks of the mouse?
I'd be really chuffed.
If you just click the top pupil, hold shift and click the bottom that should highlight them all; then when you choose a destination school and they'll all update.
Thanks very much for the reply, Brucy.
I'll pass that on to the school and await their response.
We had the manual out but in the rather tense atmosphere, which often accompanies a request for a CTF to be made, could not find out how to do it.
Don't forget to filter your sheet so students who have already been exported are also shown. Anyone from Year 9 up will likely be hidden as their KS3 results will have been sent to the National Assessment Agency via CTF.
