Create Contacts

We have recently added storing of student attendance and grades. Keep track of your students attendance records and grading of assignments, tests, and exams. You can even use the Templates section to store assignment or exam papers and link them to the grades section for easy referral.

Fully Integrated Calendar

The Calendar layout allows you to see your teaching timetable, lesson plans, and miscellaneous calendar notes and events. Each lesson plan (i.e. lesson plan, date, start and end time) created in the Courses layout will show in the Calendar. You can also create lesson plans straight on the Calendar itself by first selecting the Course, and then adding the lesson plan details. Once created, this will show under the selected course in the Courses layout. Miscellaneous calendar notes and events are not associated with any lesson plan records and can be created straight on the calendar.

There may be times when you have many lessons booked in a day and this is where printing of lesson plans come in handy. The Calendar has a function that can collate all the lessons for the entire day including individual lesson plans so you can print or even save as a PDF.

Teacher's Companion Screenshots

For users, we have provided screenshots of the solution layouts below. For developers, we have also provided brief screenshots of the database structure and script screenshots. Even if you don’t require a Claris FileMaker database solution to manage students and lessons, you will definitely find many useful scripts inside Teacher’s Companion for any other Claris FileMaker development work.

Teacher’s Companion has been developed by a number of professional Claris FileMaker developers for over 10 years. You will find many extremely useful scripts inside this solution that will help you with your own Claris FileMaker developments. For example, we created a smart file upgrade script that allows the solution to self-update to a later version without losing any of the existing table data.
