Tip: Changing the name and colour of the substitution type

You can change the text used to describe the type of substitution yourself.

Let us assume that you wish to change the term "Personal studies" to "Study time" and display this green in the list of substitutions.

Under the menu item 'Modules | Cover scheduling | Settings' there is the tab 'Colours and Terminology', where you will find a column named 'Denomination' in addition to columns for colour definition.

Enter the desired term that you wish to use in place of the original name. The example shows that the term 'Personal studies' has been replaced by 'Study time'. This type of substitution is then assigned the colour green.
