Note:
  • The student notes section displays selected student notes for the academic year, term, or session
  • You can add student notes sections on the Details and Summary/Notes tabs
  • This section does not print in columns; rather, the text of a note fills the entire width available for the section
  • Student notes print in the font style and size defined on the notepad, regardless of what is selected for the report card on the General tab



To include student notes on report cards:

  1. Open the report card parameter set in Mail
  2. Select the Details or Summary/Notes tab
  3. Select Student Notes in the Section column of the grid
  4. In the Section heading field, you can enter a heading for the student notes section

    Note: Heading text is bold on the transcript.
  5. To indent the student notes section, mark the Indent section details [ ] inches checkbox and enter the amount to indent
  6. Mark the Include a [ ] after this section checkbox to add a blank line, horizontal line, or column break after the student notes section for each academic year. The column break option only works when you select to use more than one column for the area.
  7. In the Fields to include in notes header box, mark the checkbox for each type of information to include in the note header, such as Date, Type, and Author
  8. In the Notepad types to include box, mark the checkbox for each notepad type to include
  9. Select the Sort/Break tab
  10. To order the information, select a sorting category in the Sort by column, such as Note type, Date, or Title
  11. In the Order by column, select to sort in ascending or descending order
  12. Mark the checkbox in the Break? column to create breaks between student notes sections
  13. If you mark Break?, other fields are enabled so you can define a break header and break footer for that sort category:
    • In the Text before value field, you can enter text to appear directly before the value for the selected sorting category, which is now the heading for the subsections
    • In the Text after value field, you can enter text to appear directly after the value for the selected sorting category, which is now the heading for the subsections
