This is where you can enter any text regarding the substitution.



If a substitute teacher cannot know anything about a substitution because he/she is not at school from the time the substitution is created until the time he/she has to take the substitution (according to the timetable) this box is checked. The substitute must be informed separately.



If a substitution counts positively or a release counts negatively, it will be displayed here (see chapter Substitution counter )..



This column creates an empty field in the printout which can be used by the substitute teacher to confirm notification of upcoming substitutions.



In some schools the substitution counter is not calculated according to the number of substitutions and cancellations, but according to the value units defined in the lessons. The value of every substitution case is shown here and can be edited here.


Student group

For interaction with WebUntis it needs to be defined which student takes part in a lesson, which is done via the student group. The name of the student group is imported from the coupling line of the lesson. If the composition of students in the case of a substitution is different than from the regular lesson, you can change this here.







The respective department will be shown which belongs to a substitution line.



If you use Untis MultiUser, this column shows which user edited this substitution line last.




Tip: Automatic adjustment of column width

You can adjust the width of the columns automatically by moving the mouse cursor over the heading of the substitution window or absence window and click on the right mouse-button



You can choose from several alternatives to adjust the width of the column:


Adjust column width: only the column that you have clicked on is adjusted to the optimal width regarding the heading.

Adjust all columns: all columns are adjusted to the optimum width.

Adjust all columns to their content: the columns are adjusted to the optimum width regarding the content (e.g. in the case of period not to the heading "Period" but to the names of the periods 1, 2, 3,...).


Alternatively, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts::


<Ctrl> + E: adjust all columns to the optimum width

<Ctrl> + F: adjust all columns to their content

Display of clashes


If a clash occurs for a teacher or a room due to later changes of the timetable or due to simultaneous working on the substitution plan in MultiUser, the respective field in Untis is highlighted in yellow and framed in red. The substitution number is written in red letters.
