The purpose of this brochure is to offer a fast, uncomplicated introduction to the most important functions of Untis. Please refer to the manuals for further information.
Here you find all manuals as PDF and also the Untis/WebUntis Online-Manual.
Should you have any questions regarding Untis please contact your Untis partner. You will also find the complete list of all Untis partners on our website.
For installing the software please double click on the file "SetupUntis[Version]UK.exe". Der Setup-Assistent unterstützt Sie bei der weiteren Installation von Untis.
We recommend that you do not change the default installation path. On an English Windows system this will be C:\Program Files\Untis, or C:\Program Files (x86)\Untis on a 64-bit system. Make sure you always perform installation with administrator rights. The same applies to all other freely selectable paths, descriptors and names, since this quick start brochure as well as all other manuals always refer to the suggested defaults.
The setup wizard will inform you as soon as installation is complete. From now on you can launch Untis by clicking on the application icon that has been placed on your desktop.
You can also install Untis on a central server and then give individual clients access to Untis.exe. Please note that Untis must have been started at least once on the client PCs with administrator rights prior to this.
Untis 2020 requires at least Windows 7
When you start Untis for the first time a welcome dialogue will appear displaying information about Untis. It will also allow you to call the data entry wizard that will guide you through the input of essential data.
You can launch the wizard with a double click.
Entering licence data
You will first be prompted to enter your licence data. (Your Untis partner will have provided you with a document containing your licence numbers.)
Please make sure to enter the licence data correctly. The application will automatically compute the modules you have licenced (cover planning, break supervisions etc.). Confirm your input with <OK>. You will find an overview of the individual modules available in the Modules chapter and also below.
Please note that the licence data are stored in a file and not in the application. If you therefore open the Untis file (.gpn file) with the registered licence data on another computer using Untis you will not have to re-enter the licence data.
If you have a temporary licence, you must make a corresponding entry in the 'Expiry date' field. If you do not yet have a licence you may use Untis on a trial basis for 3 days. For this, click on the button <3-day express licence>.
Incorrect licence data
If an error message is displayed, please check your input with the details on the licence data document and correct the entry. All the characters of the school name and the licence number must be entered exactly as they appear on the document.
If you need general help at any point in time, press <F1> to display help information and select 'Contents'. You will find a manual providing detailed information on all topics.
However, If you require specific information on e.g. a particular button or input field, activate the field in question and press <F1>. You can also click on the "Help“ button and then move the help arrow to the relevant field before clicking once more.
When you press F1 you are connected to the respective help topic on our website. If you want to use our online help without being connected to the internet, you have the possibility to consult it offline, just go to 'Help topics | Download help files' you can save the respective data on your PC.
If you have questions when you are familiarising yourself with Untis please contact your Untis partner by phone or email. You will find their details on our website.
