SIMS Summer Upgrade 2019
Article published: 15 July 2019
Capita have now released the SIMS Summer Upgrade which will update SIMS to version 7.188.
This upgrade has been released to all Locally Hosted schools on Solus 3 and will be applied to Centrally Hosted schools during the next scheduled downtime of Saturday/Sunday 20/21 July 2019.
All SIMS schools will need this upgrade, as it contains the software changes necessary to be able to generate the School Autumn Census and the School Workforce Census.
This upgrade is particularly important for secondary schools, as it contains enhancements for Exams Organiser and Performance Indicators areas of SIMS, in readiness for Results Days.
After the upgrade all schools should import the latest version of the Predefined reports (Reports | Import – PreDefined_Reports_v7188).
Centrally Hosted schools who use third party software which accesses SIMS data through a local SIMS client (e.g. Inventory) please remember to upgrade your local client once the upgrade has been run.
Full release notes can be found in the Documentation Centre in SIMS after the upgrade has been applied.
