  1. Have a free text option for each individual card.

    Enable each card to have room for free text, just a couple of words or numbers. This means it would be more customisable for all schools

    Thank you for sharing your idea on improving Prime Timetable. I am happy to inform you that from now on you can set any custom text in the card. In order to add custom text:

    - Right mouse click selected card(s) and choose Customize
    - Choose ‘Set custom text’ option to enter custom text to the selected card(s) that will be displayed in individual views and custom short text that will be displayed in master views.

    Click “Use default” button if you changed your mind and want to remove custom text and use default instead.

    Note that you can multi-select more cards and apply custom text to more cards at once. Also, you can use html tags inside any textual fields in Prime Timetable. In that way you can freely change any text but also the style of the text, e.g. make text bolder, change font-size or color, etc.

  2. Generate dates or allow to import them

    Currently you can add days one by one using buttons. That's ok if you havve a weekly timetable, but if you have a monthly timetable entering 31 days is a nightmare. It would be nice if we could specify a month and a year and have dates automatically generated or at least have import function working as for lessons or teachers, so that we can create the list of day with another program and use cut & paste to import it.

    You can now import new days or merge/overwrite existing day names and short names.

    In order to import days choose ‘Owl > Import > Days’. Imported days will be inserted at the last selected position.

    In order to overwrite the existing day names and short names with imported ones:

    - Select the day you want to start merging with
    - Choose ‘Owl > Import > Days’
    - Confirm merging when asked

    Done. Thank you very much for your feedback! Here is how to do it:

    1) Select multiple cards
    2) Right mouse click any of selected cards and choose Edit cards
    3) Change subject, teacher(s), class(es)/group(s), length, desired or alternative rooms and click Edit

    We want to avoid the possibility of dragging cards from one resource to another because of possible mistake. This way, it’s actually a lot more powerful as you can change any other parameter as well, substitute teacher(s) or class(es)/group(s), or you can keep current selection and add additional resources to all selected cards with “More…” button, e.g. add additional teacher, class/group, etc.

  4. The "clip" feature

    I have one lesson that is one 5th grade class, music teacher, music room
    I have another lesson that is a different 5th grade class, art teacher, art room

    I need both those lessons to happen at the same time so that 5th grade homeroom teachers can meet while their kids are with specialists. The other tool I have used had a way of linking the two lessons, so I could drag the music class into a time slot, and it would automatically place the linked lesson into the same time slot, indicating any conflicts for the art teacher &…

    I am happy to report that cards can be clipped as of today in the web app as in this example: http://www.primetimetable.com/#app%26id%3Dbaf16d0a-7c71-43cc-81ef-dd161beca05b (German and French groups are clipped and scheduled/dragged together). Clipped cards have a little clip icon in the top left corner and will be scheduled/selected/dragged/removed all together.
    More in this help page: http://www.primetimetable.com/help/#clip
    Also, now you can select multiple cards/days/periods, merge/split conflicted cards, copy cards and more…
    I want to thank you everyone for great feedback and for voting for this very useful feature. Hope you will enjoy using it!

  7. Assign classes to more than one room

    When we have lessons that meet in more than one room at the same time, is it possible to allow us to assign multiple rooms and have all show up on the facility/room assignment page?

    Using card designer you can add group name or group short name into card in single or entire class view. Group name or short name will only show up in complex cards. Published web page will also follow.

    The new “Open in Prime Timetable” link is added in upper right corner of published web page which will let any viewer to view existing timetable in Prime Timetable for better viewing and printing experience. Of course, for such user saving changes is disabled.

  12. Allow to create custom palettes for colors.

    32 colors could be enough, even if I would prefer to have a color wheel to select any color I want (eg. #a4ff60), but the default one are not the one we already use in school. It would be nice to have the possibility to specify color palettes and name them.

    You can now choose any color you want with newly added color wheel. Custom selected color will be added to existing palette of 32 colors in a separate row so you can easily pick the same color again.

  14. Ability to schedule shared resources (teachers and rooms) across multiple timetables (i.e. MS, HS)

    Our elementary and secondary schools have different bell schedules and number of periods; however, multiple teachers are shared between the two schools. It would be nice to be able to schedule both schools while respecting the teacher availability constraints.

    Alternatively, allow for multiple bell schedules (periods) in a single schedule.

    This would need some requirements gathering work to be done...

  15. csv export

    Concerning exportation of a csv file...

    I would like to see three more features for the export...
    #1 the first column should be an id number (the number of the record)

    #2... when exporting a double period you export the double as a repetition of the first period but do not change the period number.

    This could be addressed in one of two ways: have a size field (this would be preferable) indicating how many periods the entry actually spans. Or have the second period starting on the next period (right now it indicates that it starts on the period…

    Thank you very much for your valuable feedback! #2 is implemented, just refresh the webpage with Ctrl + F5 to get the latest version: http://www.wikihow.com/Force-Refresh-in-Your-Internet-Browser

    We are planning to add CSV customization window in the future and another class column so that class and groups have separate columns if there are enough interests. Customization window will enable #1 and #3. Currently, #1 can be done by adding numbers in any Spreadsheet app like Excel or Google Sheets and #3 you can add column names manually because others require that the columns are not displayed in the output
