Crystal Reports – end-of-life

After many, many years, HQ has decided to end-of-life the old Crystal report formats originally used for assessments, listings, and fee templates. Its replacement has been in Engage for a long time, but if any school still uses its old Crystal reports, please raise a Support Centre Case and have them upgraded free of charge.
