IMPORTANT - Spring Census 2018 - Fileset 803
Filesets for Census can now be installed automatically by SchoolsICT so Fileset 803 should show on your School Census screen. However, if this version is NOT showing then you will need to download and import Fileset 803 into your SIMS system in order to complete your Spring 2018 Census. Please follow the instructions below:
To import the fileset 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 0803-StatutoryReturns-Spring2018_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 (803) at the top of the screen.
