PCSchool have now made the Optional Payments in the ‘Pay Student Fees’ control sensitive to a saved student tag set. This means that the optional fee will only show for those students in the tag set not for all students / families as was previously the case.
The first step is to create and save a student tag set of the students to be included (via PCSchool BackOffice) and save this tag set into the pcschool/documents/webpayments folder on the server.
Next open the ‘payments.xml’ and add the tagset name which defines students to which this payment is related to.
Once the tagset has been saved and the xml modified the parent, if they have a student in the tagset, will see the optional charge on their Student Fees screen in the Spider.
