The Spring 2019 upgrade will upgrade SIMS .net to version 7.186 and FMS to 6.186. It includes a number of fixes and enhancements.

When will the Release be available?

Scomis Hosted Schools

The SIMS Spring 2019 Upgrade is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 17th April from 17.30. 

Schools Not Hosted by Scomis 

The upgrade will be available via SOLUS on  17th April.

Please Note:  Two issues were identified in the Spring upgrade and patches have been issued to prevent them.

  1. Patch 24825 – for FMS6 to correct an error in CFR reporting.
  2. Patch 24836 – fixes CTF error where under certain circumstances a contact address is imported with incomplete details.

Both patches will be run on the hosted platform after the Spring upgrade and available for non-hosted schools vis SOLUS.  We strongly recommend ALL non-hosted schools run Patch 24836 after the upgrade and those schools who use CFR reporting run also patch 24825.
