How Do I Configure Registers Settings?

To begin, log in to Edulink One and locate Administration by clicking the cog at the top of the homepage.

Select the Registers tab to enable taking registers in Edulink One.

Edulink One writes back registers taken in the app to SIMS in real-time, meaning you will always have up-to-date information.

Default Statutory mark (AM and PM): Select specific default marks for Present AM ( / ) or Present PM ( \ ), which students will be given automatically when opening the register. This will not overwrite pre-entered marks. This is set to ‘Do not set default marks‘ by default.

Only use these mark codes: Limits the codes staff can select when completing registers; the codes are taken from SIMS. Select the codes your school would like to use and leave codes you would like to restrict blank. Select all to use all mark codes.

Codes prompt change: Prompts the user for confirmation when changing these mark codes.

If you have set the ​Only use these mark codes ​setting, it is recommended that you include any deselected codes from that setting in Codes prompt change. This means if your attendance officer has entered a mark, employees will be notified they are about to change a code, preventing accidental changes to the register.

Enable Register Tags: Enable register tags to allow teachers additional information about the learners. This includes the following tags; SEN (Special Educational Need), EAL (English as an Additional Language), PP (Pupil Premium), M (Medical Condition), G&T (Gifted and Talented), as well as the number of behaviour points and the number of achievement points accumulated that day.

Auto hide tags: Hides tags including potentially sensitive information from a potential GDPR breach when opening the register.

Selected Tags: Select the tags that you wish to display on registers.

If you include Missing Parental Consent in the selected tags for registers, you need to select which parental consents you would like employees to check for in the Parental Consents setting at the bottom of the page.
