Problems placing a school logo on General Settings (1.16)
#1
General settings (1.16) greyed out due to the following:
1. This function is only activated if the db is on a PC. Copy the db from network place on PC and insert the logo - replace copy now on network.
2. If your database in not on the default folder, which is the data folder of your SA-SAMS,  1.16 will be greyed out. To fix , you have to place it back on the default folder - changing the setting - then put it back to the preferred location.

Thank you for answering DBE SA-SAMS.

If I may add onto this? Similarly, the General Settings (1.16) will be greyed out when attempting to configure the folders for photos of learners and educators. Thus, the same solution by DBE SA-SAMS can be applied to resolve this.

NB: when copying your database to a local computer, make sure that your users do not work on the database on the network while performing the required action(s).  Best to do this after-hours, or when no one is working on SA-SAMS.

Hi Simonlarry, have you tried the above steps ?

General settings (1.16) greyed out due to the following:
1. This function is only activated if the db is on a PC. Copy the db from network place on PC and insert the logo - replace copy now on network.
2. If your database in not on the default folder, which is the data folder of your SA-SAMS, 1.16 will be greyed out. To fix , you have to place it back on the default folder - changing the setting - then put it back to the preferred location.

The database needs to basically be in the default folder or where your SAMS has been installed

Typically the path would be : C:\Program Files\EdusolSAMS\Data or C:\Program Files (x86)\EdusolSAMS\Data (on a 64bit Windows PC)

SA-SAMS must always be installed to C:\Program Files\EdusolSAMS and not to the (x86) folder, irrespective of whether it is on 32-bit or 64-bit, or the school will be having trouble with SA-SAMS becoming unresponsive on the Spread Grid.

Please refer to my post on Windows 10 64-bit : SA-SAMS Spread 6.0.57 for more details.

Good morning all
I couldn't change my school's Principal name. We've got a new principal and I cannot change it before the database needs to go to the department via deloyment. Please advise me on steps to rectify this!

Without knowing all of the facts, I'll run through two possible scenarios:

1. If the previous Principal acted in the post and is still employed at the school, demote the (previous) Principal to the appropriate level, e.g. Deputy Principal, HOD or Educator.  Ensure the person is at the appropriate Post Level and paid by the appropriate Employer, e.g. State or SGB, depending on the case.

2. If the previous Principal left the school's employ (e.g. resigned, service was terminated, was transferred, reached pensionable age, etc.), archive the previous Principal in the Human Resources module with the appropriate date and reason.

Thereafter:
Add the new Principal on the Human Resources Module and set him/her as the Principal; or
If the person is already employed by the school (was promoted to the Principal position), promote the person to Principal and the appropriate Post Level.  Ensure the person is paid by the appropriate Employer, e.g. State or SGB.  That would rectify it for your LURITS Deployment.
