To select next teacher, click clear button below ‘selected’ box at the right of Teacher’s list. To check what is done, click ‘advanced ‘ in the Data tab and select Teachers’ statistics.

Certain restrictions

First period is usually preferred to be handled by the class teachers and special subjects like Sports, Music are allotted in between. Clubbed periods are specially allotted for practical subjects. ‘Time’ slab is used for other alterations.

1st period to Class teacher
Click ‘Activities’ in the ‘time’ slab and open ‘An activity has a preferred starting time’. Click ‘add’ in the opening window. Name of teacher, division selection, selecting day etc. have to be entered and confirmed. Then click ‘Add constraint’. Each day can be set like this.

Setting up consecutive periods
To avoid more consecutive periods or no periods, click ‘Teachers’ in Time tab and select – Max hours continuously for all teachers. Click ‘Add’ in the continuing page and click ‘constraint’ after entering the number of periods.

Division clubbing
Click ‘A set of activities has same starting time’ in ‘Activities’ in Time tab. Then click ‘Add’ in the opening window. Now necessary details be entered as directed.

Importance to some subjects
Subjects like English, Maths should not be allotted in boaring periods. For this, click ‘Activites’ in Time tab and select ‘A set of activities has a set of preferred time slots’ and do as directed.

Time Table generation

Click ‘generate’ button in Time table tab and click ‘start’ button for generating time table. If a problem arises, generate time table after rectifying it.

For your special attention

Since each click would be creating a new time table, to take a new one and retain the already created one, it should be changed into PDF format. Or, the folder ‘file name with ‘single’ in folder – FET results in Home folder be renamed or moved to another folder for generating time table each time, would renew the files in the folder.

To ‘print out’ the Time Table

Click ‘print’ in Time table menu. Select the necessary things from the left top. Select lay out from ‘print’ below. Page settings can be given in ‘options’ below. Click ‘preview’ and ‘print’ for print out. Instead of print name, select ‘print to file’ and name it and save in your computer in pdf format. It would enable to take print out as and when required.

Printing – another way
Generated Time table would be saved in FET results in Home folder. It has two sub folders. The files would be seen in the already saved name folder (with single) in Time table folder in html format. Click ‘view’ for different forms of time table and print out.

More number of time tables

The specialty of this software is that, more number of time tables can be generated at a time. For this, click ‘multiple’ in Time table tab. Now, time tables can be found in the name of multi in ‘time table’ folder.  The better ones can be selected.
