How Do I Configure the Behaviour Tab?

Customise Your School’s Behaviour Log and Detention Management Using Edulink One’s Behaviour Tab.

Employees with administration access must log in to their Edulink One account and enter the administration settings to configure the Behaviour tab.

Edulink One’s Behaviour screen works with SIMS Behaviour Records and SIMS Detentions, allowing you to use your school’s existing behaviour structure to customise Edulink One’s settings. Once customised, Edulink One writes back behaviour incidents (or achievements) to SIMS.
