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 & art room.
Is there a way to do that? I have many many linked lessons and it would be a recipe for errors if I had to move them around individually.
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!

OPTION BLOCKS are not currently supported by Prime Timetabler - This feature would enable the creation of blocks of lessons. Currently Prime Timetabler does not offer the ability to have several lessons on at the same time with very diverse sets of students... As in the very common scenario when a student selects which class they attend in a specific block of subjects offered. All the classes in this option block need to be timetabled at the same time.
