Import custom/user defined SIMS groups into Schoolcomms

Alongside class/year groups etc., you are also able to import custom groups into Schoolcomms from SIMS, including the following:

  • User-defined groups

  • Assessment-defined groups

  • Discover groups


  • If these groups are not importing, please ensure the Schoolcomms user running the import has either the Class Teacher or Pastoral Manager SIMS permissions groups.

  • Ensure there is at least one member in the group with a current membership.

  • If your import settings are set to only import Active groups from SIMS, ensure the group in question is marked as Active in SIMS.

Please find attached some useful information to assist you with creating a user defined group in SIMS. Should you require any further assistance with this process, we would advise you to contact your SIMS Support team.
