Setting up automated general reminders of assessment deadlines on SIMS
I'd like to be able to set up a system on SIMS whereby I can remind teaching staff of assessment deadlines, similar to an alarm system on personal organiser software. Currently we are using the school diary and inserting the reminder as a multiday event which seems really inelegant to me (and clogs up the diary as well). I know that SIMS does have the facility to set up reminders but it seems only to cover student related issues (free school meal eligibility, part-time attendance and medical), SEN issues and Admission reminders. I need to remind staff about assessments and interims. I also want to ensure that it is visible to all teaching staff. I know that I could send a daily message but I don't consider that to be very elegant either and likely to be ignored after the first two anyway.
Any bright ideas would be most welcome.
Many thanks in advance.
