SIMS Summer 2018 Census - Fileset 902 required for validation - should already have been installed automatically
IMPORTANT - SummerCensus 2018 - Fileset 902
Filesets for Census can now be installed automatically by SchoolsICT so Fileset 902 should show on your School Census screen. However, if this version is NOT showing then you will need to download and import Fileset 902 into your SIMS system in order to complete your Summer 2018 Census. Please follow the instructions below:
Right click on the file below and choose Save Target As (might be different depending on which browser you are using). Save this file to anywhere on your machine, we would suggest J:\SIMSData\Inbox although it might automatically save to your downloads folder.
Find the saved zipped folder on your machine, right click on the zipped folder and choose Extract All.
In SIMS go to Tools > Setups > Import Fileset
At the end of the 'choose Fileset' box click on the little yellow browse folder and navigate to your Fileset. You will need to open the unzipped folder then choose the Fileset from here. The filename will be 0902-StatutoryReturns-Summer2018_Fileset.mfs and will be the only file showing in the folder. Click on this file then choose OK.
Once selected click Import Fileset.
You will now see a message which reads "Import successful. Please close SIMS.net and re-open it." At this point, please close out of SIMS and log back in. You are now ready to start your Census return.
When you load the Census screen by going to Routines > Statutory returns > School Census, you should see the correct Fileset number (902) at the top of the screen.
Manage all your schools iPads and mobile devices from one place with Schools ICT’s Mobile Device Management Service
The benefit of using a mobile device management solution means that you are in complete control of what resources a student can see and access. Screens can be fully customised to support different learners and display the apps, files and resources you want the student to use and even place them on screen in a position you choose. The settings can be loaded to all devices in one go – no more having to update each individual device or wait for your school technician’s visit before new versions are installed.
