Adding the possibility to rotate your timetable, f.e. work with classes on top and periods left
Thank you for adding suggestion for improvement. We believe that the current setup, days on the top and classes/teachers/rooms/subjects on the left, is much more usable. For instance, when switching between master views, the top (days/periods) remains the same which is inline with how other software work. Also, for 1 or 2-week timetable there is no need for horizontal scrolling/zooming which is largely avoided as an industry standard (favor vertical scroll instead). Otherwise, in bigger schools when there are many classes, teachers, rooms, etc. horizontal scroll/zoom can’t be avoided. Extra views will make things even worse and probably won’t be usable when classes are on the top. Displaying days/periods on top doesn’t require rotating the text while displaying teacher names might require rotating text for 90 degrees in order to have the same column widths for all which will further complicate the suggested view.
As this change requires a significant effort with uncertain outcome and might go against already implemented features like extra views, we decided to decline it.
