Substitution display

previous  Top  next

You can adjust the substitution display according to your needs. It will depend upon your individual working method and on the type of activity you have just performed (e.g. edit substitutions, print substitutions).


You can show or hide every column via <Grid adjustment>VP_19_033. The contents of the individual columns of the substitution window are explained in the following.






Tip: Show all fields with content

You can display all columns that have at least one entry by clicking on the <Show all fields with content> buttonVP_19_040in the toolbar of the substitution window. When you click this button again you return to the original state of the window.



Subst. No.

This number uniquely identifies all substitutions and is primarily used by the application. You cannot hide this number on the screen; however, this is possible on printouts.



This column indicates the type of substitution. Please refer to chapter Type of substitution for more details.


Date / Day / Period

These fields display date, weekday and period of the substitution.


Time of day

The time of day can be displayed as an alternative to the period. This is particularly important if a school uses more than one time grids.


(Subject), (Teacher), (Class[es]), (Room)

These fields show the elements of the original lesson. An '*' in front of the name of the teacher indicates that the teacher is part of a coupling.


Subject, substitute, Class(es), Room

These fields show the elements of the substitution. If you leave the field 'Subject' blank, then the originally scheduled subject will be displayed when the substitution is printed.


Red question marks '??? ' in columns 'Substitute' and 'Room' indicate that available teachers and rooms still have to be assigned. Three dashes "---" indicate a cancellation or release.



If a substitution is not to be counted, enter the same flag here as the one assigned for 'Don't count... ' under 'Modules | Cover planning | Settings... '. (See also chapter Substitution counter settings ).
