The selection window is divided into two sections.


Possible problems with input data

Violences in the timetable

Via the two tabs in the upper part of the window you can switch between both sections of the window. Both sections have different headings which contain different diagnosis items of different topics. On the right side in the headings line the sum total of all violations of this topic is shown. If the number is highlighted in red it means that at least one severe problem (with a high weighting) has been detected. The different topics can either be opened individually just like in Windows Explorer or by clicking on the '+' symbol to unfold them.


The weighting of individual diagnosis items is shown in the column 'Wtg.', in the diagram the diagnosis item 'Subject only once per day not possible.' is weighted with 5. The weighting is defined in the Weighting dialogue . Diagnosis items which have an asterisk * in the weighting column, cannot be weighted. The column 'Num' shows how many violations have been detected for the respective diagnosis item.




Only those diagnosis items are displayed by default which show violations. This is visualised if you click the <Filter> button in the toolbar, as well as by filter fields highlighted in green (entry >=1 in 'Num' column).

The diagram shows how displaying diagnosis items can be restricted to those violations, for example, which have weighting 4 or higher.

By clicking this button you start a new diagnosis run. (This will also apply if you close the diagnosis window and re-open it via the 'Start' tab and click the <Diagnosis> button anew.)


Please note that the diagnosis tool only diagnoses the timetable for one week – an essential precaution when using the module Multi-Week Timetable (or Multiple Terms Timetable) where different timetables may be in use in different consecutive weeks (e.g. for classes which do not last the whole year). When analyzing such timetables, specify by means of the date setting (below the above described control elements) which week you want to analyse.
