Good Day

RE :Learner Promotion Decisions

I need to make a change to the promotion decision that was generated automatically from P to NP

On  12.7.18   I made the change manually and selected a comment and clicked save. 
However the NP remains in red. Although I clicked save many times the save tab remains in yellow. 

When I print a schedule from 12.9.12.  the promotion decision is RT. 

Please help.

Many Thanks

Information Request regarding Support
Posted by: SarelK - 08-25-2017, 03:39 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

This request is merely to set some guidelines and boundaries, so that everybody knows what constitutes "fair and reasonable" expectations in terms of support rendered via the forum, albeit by an Administrator or another Forumite:

1. Please bear in mind that most of us also have our own day-jobs, that require our undivided attention during office hours.

2. Yes, some of us do have families, as well as other extra-curricular activities to attend to, after hours.  As such, it isn't always possible to respond immediately.

3. Please be patient if you're waiting for an answer.  If nobody responded in a day or two, please remind us by "bumping" the thread (post in it again).

4. Always consult your Provincial EMIS Section first, prior to requesting assistance. Some EMIS Sections don't appreciate their users asking for inter-provincial support with SA-SAMS, which is quite understandable. If you cannot get a hold of them, or they cannot assist you, feel free to holler.

5. If you are paying someone to render advice on SA-SAMS, you're doing it wrong. SA-SAMS is free!

6. Please do not PM us with questions about SA-SAMS. Chances are good that some other users are experiencing the same problem(s) or challenge(s) as you.  If it is on the forum, it makes it easier for anyone with adequate knowledge of the topic to reply there and to actually have it "out there" for others to see in future, should someone be able to resolve it for you.

7. Please do not e-mail me with your SA-SAMS questions, for the same reasons as paragraph 6, above.

8. Do not send your database to anybody other than an official of the EMIS Directorate, your Provincial EMIS Section, or an Administrator on this forum.

9. If you need to send me a database of your school, please download a Free Evaluation copy of WinRAR (use "Best" compression) or download and install 7-zip (use "Ultra" Compression) to compress the file, so that it can be transmitted faster via GMail, Yahoo! Mail, or another suitable mail client.  Remember that some mail servers have a limitation on the size of attachments that you can send - if in doubt, consult with your Internet Service Provider.  You are also welcome to upload it securely to the cloud and to share the link with an Administrator via PM or e-mail, so that we can take a look.

10. Most of us don't have subsidized mobile phones. Don't just distribute or post personal mobile numbers.  It belongs to us, in person - we pay the bills.  We cannot always phone you from work, because that wouldn't be right towards our employers, for obvious reasons. So, if you need assistance and have been supplied with a contact number, be courteous and make the call.  Don't expect to have calls answered after 21:00 in the evenings.

I really hope that this will clear things up in terms of expectations for acceptable means of communication.

A great tool for teachers is CLASSDOJO I have been using it for a few years now and my learners love it. And it's free, no ads, just free, like SA-SAMS.
