RecordLink Writer

Save emails, Word and Excel files, and mail merges to SIMS

By saving emails and other files to SIMS, student records are moved from distributed client PCs around the school to a single point on the network from where they are quickly and easily retrieved. The central record is easier to manage, access and keep up to date. Files are protected by network access and SIMS permissions, are easily added to the disaster recovery archive and are recoverable on the network from anywhere with network access, within the school or offsite.

Saving emails

You receive an email from a member of staff or a parent that needs to be saved to a pupil record. Previously you would have printed the email and archived a paper copy in the pupil's file or browsed to the student record in SIMS and attached the email copied into Word. With RecordLink Writer just select the 'Save As' button on the toolbar in MS Outlook and save the email directly to the student's record in SIMS.

Saving mail merges

Construct a mail merge in SIMS and follow the instructions to include Pupil_id. Use RecordLink writer's Split&Save function to save only the sections relevant to each student's pupil record in SIMS. Distribute the document as normal, by hard copy, email etc.
