    Thank you for adding suggestion for sort improvement. Obviously, you can reorder teachers any way you like by using up/down arrows in the bottom right corner of the grid. We have just published a new version which additionally allows sorting teachers by tag and then by name. In that way, you can add ‘Science’ or ‘IT’ tags for teachers and then sort grid by clicking Tags column header. That will sort teachers by department (tag) and then by name. Hopefully, that will be useful in some scenarios.

    Done.

    - Choose Manage > Subjects, select subject and click Edit
    - Expand More and check Exclude from statistics
    - Click Edit

    Activities for subjects excluded from the statistics will not be taken into account when generating statistics/reports. For instance, you might want to exclude lunch, break, recess, teacher meeting, preparation, duty, assembly, after-school activities (e.g. study hall, pack-up) or similar. Ignored subjects and related activities are displayed in italic.

  3. For example:
    Mr. Smith's class has science three times per cycle. If Ms. Jones teaches Mr. Smith's science class on Day 1, I don't want her to teach them on Day 2 as well. I want at least one day in between. Please help! This is the ONLY function missing from this amazing site :)

    Thank you for adding suggestion for improvement. This can be done on a subject level. You can create a specific subject, e.g. ‘Science for Mr. Smith class’, expand ‘Day off’ and check ‘Insert day off if taught 2 times per cycle’ and ‘Insert day off if taught 3 times per cycle’. Use this subject when adding related Science activities.

    If Insert day off if taught 2 times per cycle is checked, that subject will not be scheduled on subsequent days, e.g. having that subject on Monday and Tuesday will show an error notification.

    In case that Insert day off if taught 3 times per cycle is checked, having subject on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will cause error notification for a specific class, whereas Monday, Tuesday, Thursday will be valid.

  4. Would be great to be able to set a specific gap time (ex. 15 Min) between each lesson.

    Choose ‘Owl > Manage > Periods’ to manage periods and their intervals. You can set any duration for a period and in that way you can add periods with 15-minute duration. It might be useful to pick the red marker and forbid the ‘gap period’ so it’s not counted as pause and the generator won’t automatically scheduled cards there. Additionally, choose ‘Owl > Help > Options’, expand ‘Advanced options’ and check ‘Resize periods based on duration’ if you want to show columns more realistically, e.g. you want to see a 15-minute period proportionally smaller compared to a 45-minute period. The same option is available when publishing timetable to the web, so you can fully control how the timetable will be displayed to others.

  5. In NYC teachers are not allowed to teach more than 3 periods in a row. I know you can set this in the parameters but I need to put “free” or what we call preparation periods in teachers schedule but the program still counts it as a period and flags it. Additionally it would be great if the program could insert a “prep” period after 3 teaching periods. This pas year I had to do it myself and the program flagged it as too many periods in a row.

    Here is a solution for a free period:

    - Choose ‘Owl > Manage > Subjects’, select ‘Prep’ subject and click Edit
    - Expand More and check Exclude from the generator and notifications
    - Click Edit

    Non-teaching activities (teacher meeting, preparation, duty, lunch, etc.) shouldn’t affect teacher/class load, e.g. max. activities in a row, max./min. activities per day, etc., so you might consider ignoring related notifications. It’s recommended to forbid the time slots where ignored cards are placed, so the generator won’t use them for regular cards or count them as gaps.

    Ignored subjects and related activities are underlined, while the ignored cards are transparent/italic. More in the user guide: https://primetimetable.com/help/#subject

  6. I'd love to be able to format the size of rows/columns in the schedule to more accurately reflect the length of class periods.

    I am happy to report that you can resize periods based on duration. By default, all periods appear to have the same size in the view regardless of their actual duration. Choose ‘Owl > Help > Options’, expand ‘Advanced options’ and check ‘Resize periods based on duration’ if you want to change this behavior, e.g. you want to see a 15-minute period proportionally smaller compared to a 45-minute period. The same option is available when publishing timetable to the web, so you can fully control how the timetable will be displayed to others. Thank you all, for adding suggestion for improvement and voting for it!

  7. I would love to be able to custom order unscheduled cards for a class.
    For example all the maths lessons together, all the English lessons together. IN that way I can keep track of the activities I created in a more efficient way. Thanks!

    Thank you for adding your suggestion for improvement. Unscheduled cards are now grouped by subjects (and sorted by subject position) and further sorted by card length (longer cards go first). In that way, unscheduled cards follow ordering of subjects which can be controlled using up and down arrows in the bottom right corner of the grid.

    The ordering can be changed while dragging unscheduled cards and if you want to reorder/group them again just refresh the view by selecting the same view in the view picker.

  15. Create groups of teachers/staff and then assign a group to an activity. For example, we have an upper school assembly that should be attended by all upper school staff. It would be great to have an "Upper School Faculty" staff group and then assign that group to the activity, rather than individual teachers

    Thank you for adding suggestion for improvement. Tags are added for teachers, rooms, classes and subjects so you can quickly filter specific teachers, rooms, classes or subjects, e.g. when assigning an activity, copying constraints to specific resources or creating a view. Multiple tags should be separated with comma, e.g. “lab, 1st floor”. More in the user guide: https://primetimetable.com/help/#tags&q

  16. For example, we use Monday-Friday, the PowerSchool Download gives the days an Alpha A-E letter format. I need them in M-F.

  17. The ability to specify that an activity can only appear on a particular day of the week. Programming for blended learning is challenging because some teachers and students are at home. Some teachers can only teach a particular group of students when they are home.

    Thank you for adding suggestion for improvement. I believe this is already possible because you can add any subject and add related activities. Then you can switch to subject master view, pick the red marker and mark days that you want to forbid. Marker in the bottom-right corner draws or erases forbidden, unwanted or mandatory positions for classes, teachers, rooms and subjects in any master, individual or extra view. Watch video on how to draw forbidden positions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NCOSPEJrbI or read more in the user guide: https://primetimetable.com/help/#marker.
