    Exam Timetables?

    @adamw I've posted above a snippet from the raw csv file. Like I said - it's messy! I have over 10,000 rows for my 270 students. The columns of data for the first student never line up with the rest (although all of the other students do line up). The final two columns of data are always a row too high compared with the rest. I have removed the identifiable data. Another problem is that there is no id in this file that can be matched to frog. The best id this file contains is the students exam number, but I do not think the exam number is in frog. My method was: 1., Use an excel macro to get a usable format 2. Use a lookup function with a lookup table to swap exam number for UPN 3. Pass this through a tool that converts csv to json with UPNs used as the keys.

    Exam Timetables?

    Exams Organiser whilst an "extra module" comes as part of the standard SIMS package. I would imagine that almost all Exams Officers in SIMS schools will be using it to administer exams,

    Exam Timetables?

    Ah, I read now that you wanted something similar for parents? Should be easy enough to adapt so a parent can see their child's timetable.

    Exam Timetables?

    @ADT @gbligh I've sorted this one with a new widget. Shows the currently logged in student their exam timetable if he/she has one and provides a pdf to download/print/keep. I went for pasting the data for the entire year group into a widget preference. The widget selects the correct records for the currently logged in user from the preference. There are no names in the data, so I feel fine about this approach from a data protection point of view. Getting the data out of SIMS is the hard bit! As far as I can tell you can only get the data out of Exams Organiser (the add-on module Adam was talking about). There are two very similar reports (one of them includes their seat number, so I went for that one) that both have a "to CSV" option. However, the csv eventually exported is a real mess! I had to write an excel macro in the end to clean it up. I'll post the macro and instruction for anyone who want's to replicate.

    I think PaperCut can monitor printing on networked printers if it is installed on the same server as the print server. For USB printers I think there is some client software the needs installing on each machine that has a USB printer plugged in.

    Ok, so lets try that again.... I think the images should now be displayed correctly - @adamw @Graham Quince feel free to take v2 from our platform.

    FrogSeats v2

    We are on Parks 11.1.8 - is this the latest release? I don't see any problems - all works as expected. What do you mean exactly by the "info' button?

    Maybe I've not refereed to the images that are packaged with the widget correctly in code. Certainly seems like the paths do not work once the widget has been installed on another platform. Can someone from frog @adamw ? have a look at the main.ejs file and advise if this is the problem? Thanks Paul.
