We assume that teacher Gauss is defined as a shared element of the two schools, "Manual School 1" and "Manual School 2", as described in the example used in the previous chapter.


If either of the two schools now schedules lessons for teacher Gauss then this information will be displayed in Gauss' teacher timetable in the other school. TheMU_19_049icon shwos that this is the lesson of another school.





Please note that in the school "Manual School 2" lessons have been scheduled for Monday, periods four and five, whereas in Manual School 1" periods 3 and 4 are displayed as occupied.


The reason for this are the different time grids used by the two schools





As you can see in the figure, the third period in the school "Manual School 2" lasts from 9.50 to 10.35. Since "Manual School 1" starts one hour later, the second period is overlapped. Due to the distribution of breaks, there is a bigger offset only later in the afternoon, which means that the lessons on Tuesday in periods 7 and 8 in "Manual School 2" are blocking the periods 6 to 8 in "Manual School 1".


If you activate "TT display in minute mode" on the "Layout 2" tab in timetable settings, "Manual School 1" can see precisely when teacher Gauss is scheduled in "Manual School 2".





The availabilities of external elements are also visualised in the scheduling dialogue.





In the details window of the timetables and the scheduling dialouge you see in which week external elements are not available.





You can create as many schools and school years as you wish and up to 255 versions in the database. If "Manual School 1" logs in to version 1 then the information regarding the external elements of the school "Manual School 2" will also be retrieved from version 1. All schools must work with the same version in order to ensure that the display is correct. We recommend that you always work with version 1 .
