A new feature has been developed in the Registration module, due to be released in iSAMS version 8.0.920, that means student timetables will now be shown in the ‘Take a Register’ screen. It will work in an identical manner to the student timetables accessed in Student Manager.
This will allow you to quickly view the whereabouts of a student if they are not present for Registration, to determine their reason for absence, without needing to navigate to another module. This feature works for both AM/PM Registration times and Lesson Registration.
Using the New Feature
In order to use the feature, you will need to navigate to: School Management > Registration > Configuration > Registration Options.
Here you will find a new option labelled as ‘Show Students Timetable’. By setting this to ‘Yes’, a new icon will become available on the ‘Take a Register’ screen, which when clicked, will take you straight to the student’s timetable.
If a student has any scheduled activity sessions, they will be displayed at the bottom of the timetable.
This feature replicates the functionality in Student Manager, so all permissions set for Timetable Manager will be adhered to. If the user does not have access to Timetable Manager, a read only view of the timetable will be displayed.
