  1. Hi We're just about to use a new room booking system, followed by a parents evening booking system. They are an online cloud based app. To access it the user navigates to the correct web address and then enters a unique "Webcode", which identifies them. The system doesn't utilise SSO (yet) so the staff will have a unique, randomly generated code to lose. So, is there a way of attaching these webcodes to the users (the parents will have one when we get the parents evening system up and running) so it will be to hand when they click on the link in Frog to go to the site. I was looking at Paul Conkie's exam timetable widget and wondering if a much simplified version of that would work as it is a similar principal? I thought about using e-portfolios, but it would require a large amount of setting up as far as I could see. Cheers for any ideas.

    Curriculum Designer

    Sorry, I really should learn to explain myself a bit better. I have been looking at this to see about how to develop it. On first inspection it seems quite nice, However, we are a secondary school and my first thought was getting rid of KS1,KS2 etc. to make it a bit sleeker. Then looking around I saw this post. Followed the advice on changing the settings, only to find that didn't work. Hence wondered what else wouldn't work. On looking at it, I think for us it would be a bit like Moodle in that it's a lot of work on something that nobody (OK maybe a couple of teachers) bothers to use.

    Curriculum Designer

    Is curriculum designer fully functional yet? We're about to undergo a major review/change in school around curriculum and as that's an area of my responsibility alongside Frog, I thought I'd assess whether it would be a useful tool or not.

    Parent records

    Cool. I was checking that method was safe. Where have these records come from, they look mostly old parents? Is there an end of year routine we're not doing properly?

    Exam Timetables?

    We use Sims, but our data/exams manager is so fed up with its "quirks" that she has written her own database. She uses the "Exams Organiser" module to make sure that her team don't miss any entries through "Human Error", but exports the info to be manipulated in her own database. Rooming (we don't have an exam hall)/special access arrangements etc. This means it takes seconds to output the file for use in Paul's widget, she now has a query set up which creates the csv file with the correct headings etc. She was absolutely delighted with the result as it has cut out a massive amount of effort on her team's part as well as saving a small forest!

    Parent records

    I was doing an exercise around our year 10 parents. I noticed that we have around 250 parents marked as "Inactive" and not MIS Linked. Is there a quick way of removing them to keep things tidy. Thanks
  7. How did you individualize this? Looks like a great idea.

    Exam Timetables?

    This is great. As usual However, I seem to have a problem with creating a pdf. Nothing happens when I click the button? I'm using Chrome as my browser. Also, if I use the User select widget, it's not giving me anything, maybe I don't have the later version, I've tried updating in Package Manager, but it says I'm up to date.
  9. Thank you. Whatever you did it is working now. 😁
  10. It's on the staff dashboard, but it's currently hidden from everyone except admins. When you login is it as an admin?
  11. I would love to use this, but I can't get ours to email out. Is there any way I can inspect the code for it to check why?
  12. Thank you. Works a treat for us. Like you said, I hope this stops the tide of Parental phone calls/emails...

    Select Date Widget

    Yes, worked a treat, thank you
  14. So now, shame-facedly I have to say I can now see the read receipts. I hope you've not spent any time trying to fix something that wasn't actuslly broken - sorry. User Error.
  15. Thank you for giving your time to this. Just a small question about the reporting widget. in the "Name of the report" field, do I need to put part of the filename that the parents see, or part of the filename that it is called in the Parent Manager? So if the parents see the name as "Report 19-20 Y10 PC1 for <student name>" and in parent manager it is seen as "49c15f91<student name>-012529-Y10 PC1.pdf" What do I type into the reporting field? Cheers

    Select Date Widget

    I couldn't follow these links. It was asking for a login and saying that I couldn't "self Register" from my domain....?
  17. Is there any update on this?

    Select Date Widget

    Is there any way that the Select Date widget can be altered so that the site designer can fix the start date, either as a fixed date 1/12/2019 for example, and/or by a calculation Today-90 etc.?

    MyFrog Login

    We're having this, and other issues on IOS devices. Some older IOS devices Iphone 5 ish can't log in to MyFrog at all, they have to use the site access via a browser.
  20. OK, figured it out. I'd made the widget hidden to everyone except Admins, not realising that users can't see it anyway. Set it back to visible and it worked.
  21. Have a similar issue on our platform. It records how often I have visited the parent dashboard, but no-one else.
  22. We've used this widget with our first push out of documents to Parents using frog. It seems to have worked perfectly. However, the read receipts doesn't appear to be picking up when they have been opened. When we tested it we used parents that work in the school and they can see the reports absolutely fine, but it is not showing that they have read it. What might we be doing wrong?
  23. OK. I'll have a look at it, then send you where I get to. It's probably going to be in the holidays now. P
  24. Have any schools successfully used Frog for a parents evening booking system? I looked at Booking calendar, but can't figure out a nice way of doing it that not going to involve lots of admin. Any advice greatly appreciated.
