'Lessons ' tab

previous  Top  next

You can specify the following settings on the 'Lessons' tab:





Periods/week / Years periods, Teacher, Subject, Class(es), Room

The master data involved in the lesson together with the number of periods are the essential lesson parameters. Entering data was dealt with in chapter Entering lessons .


Division number

The division number is required to ensure that the number of periods for a class are calculated correctly for divisions. A division occurs when for example English is taught in 2 groups but the lessons are not coupled, i.e. do not take place simultaneously. There are then two lesson rows each with 4 periods, but only 4 hours count towards the total number of class periods.


If both lesson rows (numbers) are assigned the same division number (permitted range of values: 0 to 255) the value units will be calculated as described above. A lesson with a division number of 0 will not count towards the total number of periods for the class.


You can assign the same division number for more than 2 lesson rows of the class. The largest number of periods covered by the division number will then count towards the class total.


Student group

An entry in the field student group is very important if you use WebUntis with divided lessons. Please refer to the WebUntis manual for detailed information.


Alias name

You can assign an alias to lessons in the same way as for master data elements. Please refer to chapter Master data – Class tab for a description of this function .



This is where you can enter the desired (subject) room for the lesson. If a subject room has been defined for a subject, it will be automatically used when the lesson is created.


Home room

If data is being entered in the view 'Classes | Lessons', the class' home room will be displayed here; if data is being entered in the view 'Teachers | Lessons', the teacher's home room will be displayed here.


Statistical code

Used in the same way as with master data. You can assign any number of statistical codes to each lesson. These codes are very useful when you wish to filter according to specific criteria.


Les. groups

You can enter the lesson group here if you use the Multi-week timetable module. Please refer to chapter Lesson groups in section Multi-week timetable .


Subject group

If the lesson subject is assigned to a subject group, it will be displayed here. The use of subject groups is primarily of interest in connection with teacher qualifications and the lesson table (with module Lesson planning ).


Students M./Students F./Total

This is where you can enter the number of students (male and female) participating in the current lesson. The total of all entries is displayed in the total field. These entries have an influence on room allocation during optimisation and room optimisation .



This field allows you to assign a text of your choice to each lesson. This text is also displayed in the 'Special text' column of the timetable details window and can also be displayed in the timetable window itself .





Line text / Line text -2

You can use these fields to assign text to the individual coupling rowsof a lesson.
