When a new student joins the school if they have a sibling who is already on roll you may want to copy across the contact details for the Mother and Father - for example.
In order to do this, on the Student profile, click on the white cog next to Contact Information.
Instead of clicking "Add New" type the name of the parent in the search box, this will bring up a list of contacts already in the system. Find the correct contact that is linked to the sibling and click 'Update' to add to the new sibling.
Always do a search before adding any student contacts in case the contact is already in ScholarPack, otherwise duplicate contacts will be created which may cause issues elsewhere in the Scholarpack such as Comms and the Parents App.
Once update has been selected, you will then see the screen below which needs filling in for the student you are adding the contact to.
After doing this, you can then click on 'Allocate' to save the contact.
These contacts are now linked - meaning that if the contact changes their telephone number for example - you are able to update just the one sibling with the new number and this will update all the linked contacts.
Please note: this will also work for Doctor contacts. However if a student does change surgeries, please ensure to remove the current surgery and add the new surgery rather than amending the details.
