SIMS in School
When you need to take a register and SIMS isn't working it can be very annoying and sometimes stressful. However, before you go reaching for that paper register here's a couple of easy tips you can try.
First, try restarting your computer.
We know the old 'Turn it off and on again' line is often seen as a joke. However for SIMS, many issues are caused by things not connecting correctly. There's a long winded way of refreshing these but a restart is the easiest way to do so.
Next, use Emerge.
This might be seen as the lighter version of SIMS. However, if all your needing to do is take a register then Emerge is up to the task.
If neither of those help then take a screenshot of your error and send it to the Service Desk and we'll be happy to assist. A screenshot is best as all those long error codes mean nothing to the majority of us.
