Overview
SIMS-Sync SD is an application that creates & manages a Windows scheduled task, that in turn synchronises student, teacher & group/class data with the Alfie assessment platform.

Requirements
You will need to have the latest version of SIMS and an Alfie software licence.

Checklist
You will need the following Log-in & Account Details:

SIMS - The SIMS username and password need to be fairly high level because the synchronisation involves student & teacher details. This is most typically a Data Manager account rather than an IT log-in.

Alfie - If you are the IT Contact designated at time of purchase, you should have received an Alfiesoft email with instructions of how to activate your Administrator account and create a password.

If you are not in possession of an Administrator account, please contact support@alfiesoft.com or call 08456 171 500

Installation of Software to Windows - A Windows log-in is required to install SIMS-Sync - this may be possible within the school or you might have to refer this to your IT Managed Services Provider.

Windows Scheduled Task - A Windows log-in is required to run the scheduled task - this is typically an account that is already being used for the SIMS data overnight back-up or synchronisation with your VLE.

SIMS Teacher Records - Teachers using Alfie need their School Domain Teacher Email Address in their SIMS teacher record - this is used for their log-in name. Within SIMS, select Focus | Person | Staff to display the Employee Details page, and search for an existing staff member to display their details.
