The + substitute
You can edit a substitution without assigning a substitute teacher. Enter '+' in the field "Substitute" and the substitution is marked as edited. (It is not an open substitution any more). You can enter explanations in the substitution text.
Contrary to absence
If an absent teacher – as an exception – takes his/her lessons (e.g. an examination) then you can assign the teacher after answering the query 'Schedule anyway? ' with <Yes>.
If a substitute is required for a double period or a period block etc., the selection 'Lesson block' will be activated in the substitution suggestion window. Activating this selection means that only those substitutes will be displayed who could take the entire block (e.g. first and second period on Monday) without conflicts. When the substitute us assigned, he/she will be assigned to the entire block.
If a teacher is absent for several weeks a substitute can be assigned for the entire period. By checking the box 'permanent substitution' in our example, the teacher chosen as substitute teacher for Monday, period 1 is automatically assigned for the following weeks, as well.
