    Interesting. How are you going to automate it?

    Exam Results Extract

    We would like to send out our exam results on Frog to stop having the students come on site in August. I can send you a sample file if you like,but would prefer to do that as a PM for security reasons, but here are the comments from our exams manager. "Sims outputs the files in Exams organiser – Reports – Results – Candidate Statement of Results" We currently only have "AM Individual Reports" enabled in the MIS extractor as general documents has far too much rubbish and sensitive documents kicking about in SiMs. Any ideas?

    Office365 Integration

    Couple of simple ones. We have the OneDrive integration set up and it seems to be working OK, apart from the sharing. I understand the restrictions due to the way MS handle permissions. But can you advise me on the best settings so that students can preview files on OneDrive. I can add the widget to a site and I can happily preview the file, open it in OneDrive etc. However, the student just gets the filename, no preview. What share settings should I have in order for the file to be able to be previewed? Also, can there be an option to switch off the "Open in One Drive" for certain profiles? So, for some teachers/subjects want certain files (of their choosing) that the student can preview and/or download, but not be able to edit it on the OneDrive. Just a thought. Secondly, what additional integration is planned in the upcoming upgrade? It would be great to be able to navigate onedrive/sharepoint using a widget. So rather than previewing just a file, the link would be to a sharepoint or onedrive folder, then the user selects the file they want to preview. When is the upgrade due? I want to revamp our Governors area and O365 Integration seems to be the way to go given how they want to use it, I'm afraid FrogDrive doesn't cut it for them.
  4. Hi Is anyone else having problems with students using IPad Air's to download files from an assignment? He is saying that the button does not respond and download the file. It could just be user error.
  5. DOH! Why didn't I look there! Thank you very much. Just a quick question. In your file, you have the Authentication set to Active Directory. Are you adding the ET's to AD too? I was going to set them all to Frog, or does Frog push through to AD as well as read from it?
  6. Excellent, that's exactly what I need. Where do I go in Frog to get to the importing though? I had a look around and couldn't see anything.
  7. Due to the current situation We're looking to create some "transition" groups in Frog for year 11's going into 12 and Year 8's going into 9's in September. This is to keep them going with work over the lockdown and into the Summer holidays. Most of the year 11's that have applied for our 6th form are already students who attend with us, but there are around 30 who are coming from other Schools. The year 8's are coming from Middle Schools, So are not currently on our Roll, But we obviously have their details as they have applied to start with us in September. The question is:- Can I bulk import the information into Frog somehow? So there would be a group called say, 12Transition Maths, which would contain all the students who have applied for A Level Maths. Just wondering, to save some admin time.
  8. You can highlight the data, then it'll copy and paste into Excel. Just make sure you get all the data and column titles, or else it pastes into Excel wierd.

    Frog Drive

    Hi I think I know the answer to this, but just in case, I'll ask. I have a teacher who has put all their student learning resources under the "Teaching Resources" in the Frog Drive. Where the students can't see it. Is there any way to bulk move them to the "Student Resources" area where they can?
  11. I waited about an hour initially, then overnight, just in case. There are no special characters in the file name, unless you count the hyphen as a special character?
  12. It's not working again. I'm just getting the broken link icon. I was making a training video for our staff for when they return next week, but it makes me quite nervous in trying to get staff to do online marking if it is going to continually break. Is there any way you can get this to be reliable before the madness starts again next week?

    Brilliant, thank you. Is there somewhere I could have done this myself?

    Really sorry, but having spent a couple of hours unsuccessfully searching you knowledgebase, I have given up the will to live. I'm trying to allow all my staff to use the message app.. But when I go into changing the properties for it half of the properties of missing, so they can't get to the App. See attached screenshot. I know there must be a way of switching on the rest, but can't find it anywhere, or any knowledgebase articles on it either.
