'Navigation' tab

You can also influence the automatically generated navigation option. On the "Navigation" tab under "List of elements with full names" you can specify for which elements the full names rather than the short names should be output.


The 'Navigation' tab is located to the right of the 'Substitutions' tab – simply click on the right arrow.





This is useful, for example, when outputting information for teacher terminals when the teacher abbreviations are not in general use.


Vertical navigation bar


The navigation toolbar is displayed horizontally by default in the static HTML output. You can choose to output the bar vertically using the "Vertical navigation bar" selection box,





When the "Vertical navigation bar" box is checked you can also adjust the width.





If you use the "course scheduling" or "student timetable" modules you can use the "List students by class" check box to have students grouped by class.





Data protection


In many schools sensitive data (e.g. teacher timetables) must be protected against unauthorised access. This requirement necessitates that all data which need a password in order to be accessed must be stored in one directory.


When exporting "Static HTML" to the selected target directory the system automatically creates subfolders. The "Weeks on the top directory-level" check box can be used to influence the structure of the stored data.


If this box is checked, a sub-directory will be created for each week’s output; the directory name is equal to the number of the week in question. This (weekly) directory then contains further folders named C (class timetables), F (subject timetables), G (substitution lists for corridors), R (room timetables), S (student timetables), T (teacher timetables), V (substitution lists for teachers) and W (substitution lists for classes).


If this option is not selected, all element folders are saved at the top level and the level below contains the folders with the week numbers.


The figure below clearly defines the difference:





How a directory (with its sub-directories) can be password-protected very much depends on the webserver and the operating system used. If you have questions concerning this topic, please contact your network administrator.
