Back to school help

Reminder on the Unlock and Password reset option

As you return from the summer break, you may find your expected login details for RM Integris no longer work. This might be because you have forgotten your password or the password may have expired over the summer holiday. If you type in the wrong password three times your account will be locked.

To resolve both of these issues use the 'I have forgotten my password' link on the main login page. Click on the link and enter your username and then click Enter. An email will be sent to your registered email address which will provide you with a link to reset the password. The account will also have been unlocked automatically.

The email address used is the one recorded in your Staff Details record under the Email field.

If no email arrives in your email inbox then do check your Junk Folder as they can end up there. If you still cannot find an email and you definitely have an email address registered then it could be that your email provider is blocking and you may need to contact them to get it resolved.

Additional Data required for October Census

As you may know the DfE are requesting additional data for the October 2016 School Census. For all schools this includes:

  • Proficiency in English

  • Country of Birth

  • Pupil Nationality (or Nationalities if more than one)

More information can be found here

To help with these data additions new fields have been added to the Additional Tab for students.

  • Country Of Birth is a drop down box with a DfE defined list of countries. You cannot add countries, you need to use one from the defined list

  • The old single nationality field has been disabled and there is a new field which allows you to add multiple nationalities for each student

  • The Proficiency in English field has a drop down choice of options and a date field

All these fields can also be edited in Modules > Administration > Speed Edit to speed up the changes you need to make.

It is essential that all three fields are completed as errors will be produced in the numbers and School Census screens if they are missing.

As we get closer to October we will post our usual Census reminder which will have links to documents you might find useful.

Latest product news

Staff document storage

In response to customer demand, we have added the ability to store documents against individual members of staff. It works in a similar way to the existing student document storage, allowing users to download, import, edit and delete documents in a new tab called Documents (within staff details). To access staff document storage, users need to be assigned the appropriate new roles in system management.

Internal exams

We have also added the ability to run internal exams through the Exams module. This is fully customisable for those wanting to use RM Integris to manage mock exams, end-of-year exams or any other internal exams in the same way they are running external exams.

IE9 upgrade

We are continuing in our efforts to encourage anybody using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0, which is no longer supported by RM Integris to upgrade to IE11 or any of the other supported web browsers. This is even more critical now as the new Staff Document Storage will not work in IE9.
