Devon Non-Hosted Schools Only: Using Anycomms

Please download the AnyComms Training User Guide and follow it to log in and transfer to and download files from County.

DTCS transfers

Devon Schools transferring claims, petty cash and invoice files to County have been given the Anycomms client to transfer files.  Schools shouldn’t see much difference in the DTCS transfer process except the Anycomms client transfer window will display in place of the Securenet window once you’ve created a batch to transfer.

After you click OK the Anycomms transfer window will appear.

You will then need to log in with your username and password.

Please check that the File Type is DTCS Finance and the Service is Finance.  Click Begin Transfer and the batches you have created will be transferred.

A copy of any files successfully transferred will be put in the F:\Public\DTSApps\Outgoing\Archived folder.

NB When you click Begin Transfer ANY files waiting for download will be automatically downloaded and placed in the Anycomms InBox (F:\Public\Anycomms\Inbox).

It is important to watch the right hand side of the window as it will display files that have been downloaded as well as any files that have been uploaded.

If any files have been downloaded you can use file explorer to move the files into another folder.

Files for Reconciliation

There should be very little difference for DTCS downloads.

Scomis has programmed the download so that any downloaded files for reconciliation will automatically be placed in the DTSApps\Simsf folder.

As schools did with Securenet – run the Reformat for FMS shortcut (hosted schools) or the Download and Reformat icon (non-hosted schools). This will start the Anycomms transfer window. BEGIN TRANSFER to download any files.   Close the transfer window and the file will reformat and be available to import into FMS.

If you have already downloaded DTCS files in a previously, run the Reformat for FMS shortcut or the Download and Reformat icon.  Close the Anycomms transfer window and the file/s will be reformatted and available for import into FMS.

Schools using DTCS transfers have also been given the client version of Anycomms which they can use to transfer other files to County.  A shortcut will be available on the desktop.

Transferring non DTCS files through the Anycomms client

  1. Use file explorer to move the file/s you wish to transfer to the Anycomms general outbox (F:\Public\Anycomms\Outbox).
  2. Click the shortcut to the Anycomms client on the desktop.
  3. Select the file type you are transferring (e.g. Admissions, Key Stage, Finance Information etc)
  4. Check the pathing of the outbox is F:\Public\Anycomms\Outbox
  5. Log in with your username and password
  6. Click on Begin Transfer.
  7. Confirmation of the transfer will appear on the right hand side of the window.

NB As before when you click Begin Transfer ANY files waiting for download will be automatically downloaded and placed in the Anycomms InBox (F:\Public\Anycomms\Inbox).

It is important to watch the right hand side of the window as it will display files that have been downloaded as well as any files that have been uploaded.

If any files have been downloaded you can use file explorer to move the files into another folder.
