Introducing tags, excluded subjects and better integration

Powerful school scheduling software

Dear timetablers,
The major improvements in this release are listed below:

Manage timetables efficiently

Timetables can be filtered by modified date, tags and published/deleted status. By default, when you click the open icon, only recently modified timetables are displayed. If you have deleted timetables by mistake, you have 30 days left to undelete them.

Stay organized using tags

Filter activities and resources by previously assigned tags. That way, you can create an English teachers meeting or copy constraints to 5th graders without having to select them one by one.

Exclude from generator and statistics

Non-teaching activities like teacher meeting, preparation, duty and lunch shouldn't affect teacher/class load. Use the new options to exclude subjects from the generator/notifications and/or statistics.

Integration with other school software

While importing data you can import custom ids for all resources from SIS/MIS software and these ids will also be used when exporting timetable into a CSV file. Moreover, you can import/merge any property for a resource, which enables quick update of specific constraints for more resources at once.

Resize periods based on duration

By default, all periods appear to have the same size in the view regardless of their actual duration. Check 'Resize periods based on duration' in the options for a more realistic timetable look both in the master and individual views and when printing/publishing a timetable.
