Firefly 6

Configuring behaviour - SIMS

Configure the behaviour plugin so that you can display positive and negative behaviour types from SIMS in the Parent Portal.

  1. Log into your Firefly site as a Firefly Administrator and go into the Control Panel.
  2. Select Plugin Configuration, then choose Configuration for Behaviour Profile Plugin.
  3. Tick Enable Parent Portal Behaviour.
  4. Add in your behaviour types from SIMS into Firefly. The Title and Subtitle items are text that is displayed directly on the Firefly page. The Identifier text needs to match that in SIMS exactly.
    To find your identifier in SIMS, select Focus > Behaviour Management  > Student Behaviour. On the screen you see, after selecting a student, sections 2 (Achievement) and 3 (Behaviour) show the items that can be displayed on Firefly like the examples below.

    If the Action Taken field has been selected in SIMS, then it needs to be entered as the Identifier in Firefly like the example below.

    If you wish for the Action Taken and Awards Given fields to be ignored and just display behaviour events based on 'Types', please contact our support team at [email protected].

  5. Select Plugin Configuration to save your changes.

If you browse to a student's profile, you can now see the achievement and behaviour they've been given.
