First time using Profiles
We are using Profiles in SIMS for the first time and finding it very slow for staff to preview their reports.
We have a template which has one page per subject which has a few grades along with two free-text comments. The data entry is fine however the SLT want the reports printing by staff to be checked by the head of department before the final reports are printed, so at the moment each member of staff have to preview the report for each pupil in their class and then print the page for their subject.
This is causing a couple of problems as it takes about a minute for the report preview to generate and then this produces a document with the students report for all their subjects so the member of staff has to check which page number to print to print their report.
Is this normal or is there a better way which I could of set the template/reporting session up.
The old system we used was to mail-merge the data into a Word template and staff could then print one document to give to their head of department for checking.
