Every Alfie account needs to have an Email address so that we can send password resets and information in regards to updates and new features. Within SIMS you can have different levels of Email addresses, from personal to work. As a school system we prefer to use your school Email addresses within SIMS and generally these are set to WORK/MAIN.

The WORK/MAIN Emails in SIMS take preference when being imported via SIMS-Sync. You can set this by doing the following:

Within SIMS select Focus | Person | Staff to display the Employee Details page, and search for an existing staff member to display their details.

If there is no school domain email address present click on New adjacent to Email Addresses panel. Then enter the school email address, set the Location to Work and Main to Yes.

If a personal email address is present it can remain, as the school email address will now be prioritised for use within Alfie.

The next time SIMS-Sync runs the new WORK/MAIN email will now be picked up.
