Options offer is an optional module of Insight, which allows parents or pupils to select the child's course options as they move through key stages.

The only configuration that needs to be done for this is in SIMS. Insight will take the information from the Options module in SIMS, accessed via: Tools > Academic Management > Options Offer > Maintain Offers.

Users can select the options by clicking the jigsaw button next to the course they wish to select. If you have configured your options to allow reserve choices or secondary choices, then parents will be able to select a second course as their reserve/second choice. Selections can be removed by clicking the red cross button.

The choices will automatically write back to SIMS, accessed via: Tools > Academic Management > Options Offer > Student Choices.
