If attendance symbols are being displayed then you can also allow users to hover over the attendance symbols to see the student's actual attendance code using this role option:
Snapshot > show hover over descriptions

Cumulative Attendance

The Cumulative Attendance section shows a student's attendance as a line chart over the course of the academic year. This chart can be turned on for students in selected year groups using the following role option:
Snapshot > Cumulative attendance

This chart is affected by the following preference, which determines whether or not PM marks are counted for the student:
Attendance > Only use AM sessions

Cumulative Behaviours

The Cumulative Behaviour chart will show a running total of the student's negative behaviour over the course of the academic year. This chart can be turned on or off using the following role option:
Snapshot > Cumulative behaviour

The following preference will cause the chart to show no data:
Behaviour > Hide behaviour menu items for the following years

This role option will hide behaviour incidents issued prior to a certain date:
Behaviour > Behaviour > Earliest

The following preference sets a validation period in days. During this period, behaviour incidents added will not be visible in Insight, including on the Cumulative Behaviour chart:
Behaviour > The number of days taken to validate negative behaviour records

If the following role option is enabled then behaviour incidents with a points value of zero will be hidden from the chart:
Behaviour > Hide zero point items

Cumulative Achievements

The Cumulative Achievements chart will show a running total of the student's positive behaviour over the course of the academic year. This chart can be turned on or off using the following role option:
General > Snapshot > Cumulative achievements

The following preference will cause the chart to show no data:
Behaviour > Hide behaviour menu items for the following years

This role option will hide achievements issued prior to a certain date:
Behaviour > Achievements > Earliest

If the following role option is enabled then behaviour incidents with a points value of zero will be hidden from the chart:
Behaviour > Hide zero point items

Recent behaviours

The recent behaviour panel will show the three most recent behaviour incidents for the student. These could be positive or negative. Positive incidents will be displayed if the Achievements role option is turned on and negatives will show if the Behaviours role option is turned on.

The Recent Behaviour panel will show the three most recent behaviour incidents for the student. These could be positive or negative. The Recent Behaviour panel can be turned off using the following role option which will also remove the Behaviour Summary section from the Snapshot page.
General > Snapshot > Behaviour

The panel can also be renamed using the following role option:
General > Snapshot > Use this title

Behaviour incidents will only be shown in the Recent Behaviours panel if they could also be shown on the Achievements or Behaviours pages in Insight. Therefore you can use the role options and preferences for Achievements and Behaviours to hide bheaviour incidents from the Recent Behaviours panel.

There is a preference to hide behaviour menu items for students in selected year groups. This preference also applies to the Recent Behaviours panel:
Behaviour > Hide behaviour menu items for the following years

Detentions

The detentions panel shows the three most recent detentions for the pupil. If any detentions are scheduled for the future they will take priority over detentions that have already passed. The role option to enable this panel is found via:
General > Snapshot > Detentions

Detentions earlier than the date set here will not be shown:
Behaviour > Detentions > Earliest

Extra curricular

The Extra Curricular panel shows the three most recent extra classes for the pupil. If any extra classes are scheduled for the future they will take priority over extra classes that have already passed. The role option to enable this panel is found via:
General > Snapshot > Extra Curricular

Detentions earlier than the date set here will not be shown:
Attendance > Extra Curriculum > Earliest

Recent reports

The reports panel will display any documents that have been recently added. The documents are pulled from the Linked Documents section in SIMS. This panel is enabled using the following role option:
General > Snapshot > Recent reports

Documents will only be displayed if the Last modified date from SIMS is within the number of days set in this role option:
General > Snapshot > Maximum age in days

Documents will only be displayed on the Snapshot page if they are also displayed in the subjects section of Insight. See the Subjects page for a list of role options and settings that determine whether or not documents are displayed.

This Term's Attendance

This Term's Attendance is chart which shows the student's attendance to each week at school. Attendance is shown week-by-week, so if a pupil is absent for a week their attendance will drop down to 0 on the graph, for that week. The chart can be turned on or off using the following role option:
Snapshot > This term's attendance

During the first week of a new term, this chart will be blank. This is because Insight needs at least two data points before it can draw a line. You should have data showing from the second week of term onwards.

Custom Panels (snapshot.bolton.xml)

You can also add custom panels to the Snapshot page. Each custom item needs to be created as a html page and saved in the _Personalisation folder. Once an item has been created, create a bolton file. You can have several bolton files. The filename will always be "snapshot_" followed by a distinct number e.g. snapshot_1.bolton snapshot_2.bolton etc.

The bolton files need to be in the following format:

<root>
<title>Guidance</title>
<url>https://[your Insight URL]/_Personalisation/example.html</url>
<height>50</height>
</root>
iReplace [your Insight address] with the URL you use for Insight

The title will be shown on the snapshot page about the new item. The "example" part of the URL should be replaced with the name of the html file in the _Personalisation folder and the height is the number of pixels tall that the item will be. Items are always 300px wide.

Multiple snapshot.bolton files can be used by creating a new file and adding a number to the end of "snapshot" e.g. snapshot1.bolton.xml

Behaviour Summary

The Snapshot Behaviour Summary

The following role option must be enabled to show the Behaviour Summary section. This role option will also enable the Recent Behaviours section of the snapshot page:
General > Snapshot > Behaviour

There are sections for positive and negative behaviour within the Behaviour Summary section. Each can be turned on or off independently using the following role options:
General > Snapshot > Showing Achievements summary
General > Snapshot > Showing Behaviour summary

The Behaviour Summary will show behaviour incidents from the range specified in this role option:
General > Snapshot > Using incidents in the range

A Cash-In section may also be shown, which will display the number of points that the student has spent on rewards, and the number of points currently available for them to spend. This feature is only available to PARS users. See the Cash In and PARS pages for more information.

By default the Behaviour Summary section will show data based on the number of incidents given to a student. This can be changed to show the number of behaviour points from those incidents, using the following role option:
General > Snapshot > Use points instead of events for behaviour

There is a preference to hide behaviour menu items for students in selected year groups. This preference can also apply to the Behaviour Summary section of the Snapshot page. The preference is found via:
Behaviour > Hide behaviour menu items for the following years In order for this preference to affect the Behaviour Summary section, the following role option must also be enabled:
General > Snapshot > Follow Hide behaviour menu preference

Negative behaviour incidents will not be shown if this preference is used to hide them:
Behaviour > The number of days taken to validate negative behaviour records

The Behaviour Summary section will not take account of any incidents that have been hidden from the Achievements or Behaviours pages, which both have their own role options that can cause incidents to be hidden.
