A new schedule can be made in three different ways:
- with the automatic generation,
- manually entering the entire schedule,
- a combination of generation and manual entry.
Schedules will be even easier to make in the second and subsequent years of applications use, as you will be able use the schedule from the previous year and change it accordingly.
Automatic timetable generator
Automatic generation of scheduling is started by clicking the "Generate" icon. Wise Timetable will generate optimized schedule within an overall period of implementation and will take into account various life situations:
- Primary (optimal) and secondary (extended) hours
- Number of seats in the room and the number of students in the group
- Location (generation takes into consideration the travel time between cities and buildings)
- Blockade / booking lecturers, groups and rooms
- Room equipment
- The number of students attending lectures
- Setting generated period for each course (beginning or end of the day)
- Two shifts (Wise Timetable Basic)
- Non-working Saturdays and Sundays
- Work-free days (holiday, dean day, etc.).
Manual input of a schedule
There are four methods for manually creating and maintaining schedules. Each has its own advantages, depending on your current needs. In all of the modes the program is constantly verifying the correctness of schedule entries.
Schedule can be created and maintained through:
- Inserting courses (enter basic information about the course and then immediately insert it into the schedule as well).
- The main work area (for an overview of already loaded schedule use various reviews and insert the course into appropriate term).
- Listing of unallocated processes (Check which courses haven't yet been entered into the schedule and organize them into it).
- Review of occupancy (Find out when the selected lecturers, groups and rooms are free and enter the course into a non-occupied term).
Combination of generation and manual input
Only the courses that have pre-determined time periods and are locked can be manually entered into the schedule. Allocation of the remaining courses can be left to the automatic generation.
