The SIMS 7.178 and FMS 6.178 Autumn release is now available
The SIMS Autumn 2017 release is an essential upgrade in order to run the Spring 2018 census. In addition to the census the release contains several enhancements including a new Person Data Output Report to assist schools in producing Subject Access Request information. There is a new permission group ‘Data Protection’ to manage access to the report which could include sensitive information. You will need to assign this permission to a suitable user.
The release is available for you to download from SOLUS 3.
Please note, for Capita Hosted schools, your upgrade will be carried out during the forthcoming weekend commencing Friday 10th November.
