Auto-filled Calendar

This poor old test user has a timetable of lessons in early August, but what it shows is a new feature of our system coming into operation. From now on it will be possible to have people's timetable from SIMS automatically update their calendar (to save the hassle of typing it in yourself).

By default the calendar will be updated for six week's ahead and if your timetable changes in SIMS that evening your calendar will be fixed too. Students will also have their timetable auto-loaded.

We're currently doing final tests before rolling this out to all sites. Obviously secondary academies will be the ones with the most to gain, so we'll launch it there first, but every academy with SIMS will have this added.

The same system (Salamandersoft) that does this will also automagically set up groups for every timetabled class, form, year group and department, so emailing and sharing resources will become much much easier - more about that in a few days,
