Hosted SIMS School – Giving Access to Shared Applications

To access other hosted applications such as FMS or dtsapps (ie Claims, Monitor, Trial Balance Comparison, Contract Printing) from the hosted environment, or to complete data transfers via SecureNet (which has to be run from SIMS in order for the files to be accessed), shortcuts (known as TS Shortcuts) are required to launch them.

This video shows how an administrator with the User Management tool can assign additional shortcuts to other users in the school. Note that if a required shortcut is not appearing in the list of shortcuts available, please call the Scomis service desk.

Only users with the User Management tool can allocate these shortcuts to users in the school requiring TS shortcuts. The User Management tool is generally assigned only to the main SIMS administrator and/or school IT manager. The head teacher or main administrator will need to send in a request to Scomis if other users in the school need the User Management tool. Only Scomis can add the User Management tool to a users shortcut menu.

It is beneficial to set your window zoom to allow you to see the whole of the screen without having scroll bars.  Amend the zoom percentage accordingly so that you can see the Adobe Captivate button at the bottom left of the screen.

Use the universal start/stop/rewind/fast forward buttons shown at the top or bottom of the screen to run the video at your preferred speed.
