In addition to the standard package Untis offers a number of additional features, which are available in special modules. There are separate manuals describing these functions in greater detail. The modules are listed briefly below.

 

You will also find a detailed description on our website at www.grupet.at . You can also test each of the modules. If you are interested, please contact your Untis partner.

 

Multi-week timetable

This module enables you to schedule time-limited lessons (e.g. for graduating classes) and periodic lessons (e.g. every 2 weeks). You can also model completely irregular timetables that may be found at many vocational schools.

Furthermore, the school year can be split into independent terms with different timetables. This allows several independent timetables for a single school year to be created in one file, enabling analyses and statistics to be easily drawn up covering the complete school year.

Lesson planning and Value calculation

This module assists you before actual timetable scheduling starts – with the planning of teacher deployment (subject allocation, teaching load). There is a number of tools available to help in allocating lessons (e.g. Lesson matrix, Lesson table, Teacher suggestion etc.). This module is also used for overall value calculation (teacher target and actual values, subject factors, values of date-limited lessons etc.).

Cover planning

Cover planning is a fully integrated tool which helps you to assign and coordinate daily substitutions. A second major task of the cover planning module is the maintenance of substitution statistics and their evaluation in accordance with your own criteria and those specified by the authorities.

Break supervision

In many schools, students have to be supervised during the breaks. Untis provides the ideal tool for this task. You can specify the break supervision areas yourself as well as defining what amount of supervision duties should be allocated to which teachers and also which teachers should be excluded from supervision. This module is also integrated with the cover planning module, i.e. cover can also be planned for break supervision.

 

 

KE_070

 

 

Info-timetable

This module was specifically designed to show timetables and cover planning data on the Internet or on an intranet or to distribute them by email. The possibility of displaying substitutions fully automatically in the school entrance area on monitors or by means of a projector is becoming increasingly popular. This allows substitutions to be updated immediately without having to reprint and display paper lists.

 

 

 

KE_071

 

 

Student details window (magnifier)

This module is aimed at school systems in which students have few course options (and a relatively large number of compulsory courses). Students can be assigned individual courses and timetable optimisation can determine which optional courses can be held in parallel. This results in individual timetables for each student.

 

 

 

KE_072

 

 

Course scheduling

This module is a powerful tool for those types of school in which the students can freely choose their courses (e.g. in the sixth form). There are various tools available for creating sets automatically and manually.

 

 

KE_084

 

 

Department planning

In large schools, individual departments often schedule their timetables independently. Untis enables you to split the overall timetable of the school into separate department files and subsequently to merge them once more into one school file.
