Just had the day from hell: LEA support thought it'd be a nice surprise for us to walk into the new version this morning.
As he knows, most of our teacher desktop PCs are set to run SIMS from a shortcut to pulsar.exe and not simsload.exe, to cut down on user inconvenience.
We're asked to start work at 9am, which I don't like as I like to start the day ahead of myself, not behind. For some reason I logged into the admin server and saw exactly what had been going on.
The May release has a bug Capita are aware of apparently: The home page daily registration form is broken - registration period was missing, and teachers couldn't take registers - the solution is to click on the clock/ take register icon
So I spent all day getting everyone working :(
I wouldn't mind but I'd only told the LEA support guy on Wednesday that I'd just noticed some clients hadn't taken the last update, so I anticipated problems.
