Sims and other MIS Timetables into Google Calendar
Using the timetable data from your MIS, whether it is Sims, Progresso, Facility CMIS, iSAMS or any other MIS, Salamander Active Directory can update staff members’ and pupils’ Google Apps for Education calendars with their timetable. These calendars are updated each time Salamander runs, allowing the calendars to remain up to date with any changes to an individual’s timetable.
The events can be put into the main calendar or in a named calendar as below.
This example is for a staff member so the subject is configured to be the name of the teaching group as a staff member will likely teach multiple classes for the same subject. For pupils it would usually be configured as the subject name as they typically only have one teaching group for each subject.
Salamander Active Directory can also synchronize other types of timetables from Sims and other MIS including:
· Cover timetables
· Sims Diary
· Room timetables
· Class timetables
· Sims Homework
· Behaviour timetable
· Exam timetable
