Organise ParentPaperwork Slips and Forms into Folders

A common request from ParentPaperwork schools has a way to organise Slips and Forms into Folders. For quite a while we have had the ‘Current’ and ‘Archived’ folders, which we introduced to give at least the ability to ‘hide’ older records. But it’s become apparent that we needed more than this.

We have now enabled a new Folders system for both Parent Slips and School Forms.

Set up Folders

Click on your user name at the top right and select Settings, then the Slip and Form Folders option.

You can add and edit the Folders as required. You can delete Folders but only if there are no Slips or Forms allocated.

Allocate Slips and Forms to Folders

Once you have created some Folders you can now allocate Parent Slips or School Forms to the Folders. You can allocate multiple records at the same time, click the checkboxes next to the records you wish to allocate

folders-3

Once you have selected the records click the Action drop down and select ‘Copy/Remove Selected to Folder’, and whether you wish to Copy the records to the Folder, or Remove From the Folder. Select the destination/source Folder and click the Go button.

folders-4

The records will be allocated to the Folder (or removed). You can view the records in the Folder by selecting it from the drop down list and clicking the search button.

folders-5

Records can be in multiple Folders at the same time.

The Current and Archived folders remain separate, so a record is either in the Current or Archived Folders, AND maybe in one or more Folders you have created.
