Multiple term timetables are usually used for the following cases:
- Modifications or changes of the timetable during the school year (e.g. at the end of the first half year; longer absenceof one or several teachers, etc.).
- Seminars/courses with time restrictions (e.g. all classes have 10 weeks of lessons).
Multiple term timetables split the school year into several time ranges, and for every one of these time ranges, a timetable can independently be scheduled. You certainly could also save every timetable in an individual file, this, however, has a lot of disadvantages. A multiple term timetable therefore, provides you with the following advantages:
- You only have one data set for every school year.
- You can easily create statistic analyses for the entire school year at any time.
- Weekly overview timetables (in particulat for printing and for the internet and the intranet) correctly show the timetable which constantly changes time-wise.
- Substitution planning automatically accesses the currently applicable timetable. Errors are, therefore, impossible.
