The 2017 EMIS Intergrated Utility Tool is for ECD schools. However in the Eastern Cape our ECD schools are not on SASAMS. We in the Eastern Cape are not doing surveys, but will use your normal Monthly submissions to extract the relevant data. Should you as schools wish to download and install this utility tool to check your data, feel free to do so, but we at EMIS do not want this data. The tool is available on Thutong.
SASAMS version 17.0.0 is in BETA mode and available for testing.
Currently SA-SAMS experiences network problems. This version is designed to fix and upgrade
This version needs to be tested on a network . This version corrects the locking, especially when capturing absentees. It will be appreciated that you contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to test this version and send me the results by Monday by 12;00.
Reminder to test on a COPY of your database since after testing the database will NOT be usable on the new patch.
