Embedding a term

previous  Top  next

If the timetable only changes for a certain period of time (e.g. a teacher's illness/convalescence, a school event for the majority of classes etc.) a new term can be embedded in an existing term.





Such a constellation would be displayed as follows in the term window:





Term 1 runs from 19 September to June 30 and term 2 ('Winter sports week') runs for one week from 13 February until 18 February. The timetable can now be changed just for this one week without affecting the timetable for the rest of the school year.


If more than one term exists you can choose which one should be the 'mother' for the new term. If another timetable change becomes necessary during the school year, the term that is most similar to the new term is taken as the mother term. This is in general the last valid term.
