Wonde for SIMS 8

Enabling Wonde for SIMS Primary


These instructions are for SIMS Primary (SIMS 8) customers only. If you wish to use Wonde with SIMS 7, contact either the supplier whose software Wonde will enable or Wonde directly if that fails.

To enable Wonde in SIMS ID you need to have access to SIMS ID, have a SIMS ID Local Administrator account and have linked SIMS to SIMS ID. The FAQ section below provides details on these actions.

The act of having SIMS Primary automatically means that SIMS ID is set up and ready to accommodate Wonde. The instructions below will help customers to turn on the Wonde data exchange.

School Actions

The action can only be carried out by a SIMS ID Local Administrator.

Log into SIMS ID ( as a SIMS ID Local Administrator

Accessing the Tile Store

The Tile Store is accessible via the Tile Store tile on the Launcher Page of SIMS ID. Only admin users will have access to this tile.

If you have admin access to more than one site, when you access the tile store you will be taken to your primary sites Tile store first, if you want to change sites click on the "Change Site" button at the top or the page and a list of available sites will open within the page allowing you to select the site you wish to manage.

The Tile Store Interface

The Tile Store is split into two sections. Available Tiles and Available Applications

To install Wonde you need to go to the Available Applications screen

A search facility is available on the Tile Store screen to help quickly locate tiles you are looking for. Sort buttons may also assist from 1/1/21.

Available Applications Screen Actions.

On the Available Applications Screen, you will be presented with a number of tiles. These tiles are applications that are available to deploy at your site. You will need to find the Wonde tile.

Finding out about the Wonde Application

On the Wonde Application tile there is a Show Details button. Clicking this button will provide you with information about the application. Also included are links to the applications:

  • Privacy Statement
  • GDPR data transfer summary
  • Support Page

Installing the Wonde Application

To install an application click on the green Install Button on the tile.

Why is there no install button on a tile?

An install button will not show if the application is already installed at your site. Installed applications show in Available Tiles

Accepting the Data transfer

When you install a tile you may be asked to Approve a GDPR data transfer screen. Please ensure you are authorised to accept this and make reference to the information presented on the screen and the information contained in the documentation linked to from the application Further authorisation within the Wonde system will need to be approved before data can flow from Wonde to the intended product.

(Please scroll to the bottom of the page (not shown) and either agree to the data exchange or press cancel.)

Once approved, you will need to contact either Wonde or to enable permission to be granted within SIMS Primary for Wonde to extract data. This is an interim measure whilst we provide a hands free solution.

Once the tile is selected in SIMS ID and installed and the permission grant above, Wonde will be able to access the data agreed via our APIs. If there is a need to turn off the flow at any time, simply go back to the tile store and uninstall Wonde which will immediately stop the data exchange. Please note that it does not remove existing data held elsewhere; customers would need to follow any request for removal with both Wonde and the software supplier(s) that use Wonde to obtain their data.

Once installed the tile will move to the Available Applications tab.
