Template Builder

Hi Team,

Member of this forum has been generously amazing with the various discussion I read from the forum, I feel challenged and I want to learn, and will also contribute to others in the near future.

Sequel to my passion to create a world-class school in a third world country, I hereby request a mentorship program for my school. I expect mentorship in the implementation of Gibbon School Management software, assistant of kind-spirited educators to guide me step-by-step on how to build our school kind of Template to be able to generate Term one, Term two, and Term three, student results with the term two as a cumulative of Term one and Term three as a cumulative of Term two generated from a Year group Broadsheet just like the sample attached,

My local installer has abandoned me due to the complicity of the report configuration am not a trained computer programmer.

Your help will be highly appreciated

Kind Regards

Hi Francis,

Thank you for your kind words, I’m glad to hear you have found the forums to be welcoming and supportive.

The template builder and Reports module is new as of v19, and in many ways the available template sections are just starting to scratch the surface of what’s possible for the module to generate. Its a very flexible module, but the default templates will certainly not meet every school’s needs out of the box. That said, many community members are also learning to use it for the first time, and the documentation is still being developed, so there is understandably a learning curve to start using the module.

Creating and editing templates requires a decent knowledge of HTML and the Twig template syntax. One place to start would be to see if you have anyone in your organization who has these skills and is willing to learn about the Report templates.

Another option is commercial support via gibbonedu.com. If you would like to set up, for example, a Skype call or email conversation, to work through your issues, please let us know and we can advise on pricing.

Hope this helps!
