There are a variety of ways to set a section schedule: by Cycle day, week day, specific date and within a period tag or at a set start and end time.
You can edit each section’s schedule through the menu at the right of each section.
Cycle Day + Period Tag
If the class must occur according to the Cycle Day and Period, you must set the entry as such by picking Cycle Day in the Day area and pick Period in the Time area. Then, the right Period Tag must be entered.
The Period Tag MUST be identical as the tags you have defined in the Bell Times of your Calendar.
If your configuration uses Multi-Schedules, then the appropriate Schedule Tag must also be entered. See the multi-schedule documentation for details. If you do not have schedule tags, this MUST be empty.
Cycle Day + Time
You can set a class to occur on a cycle day, but at a specific time. This allows for a variety of scenarios such as classes which happen outside of the regular bell times.
WARNING: This can come in conflict with Cycle Day + Tags and you might see overlap.
Notice the Display Tag which allows you to set if a Period Tag should be visible at the right of that block. This is optional and can be anything unrelated to the Bell Times.
Day of week entries
Instead of the Cycle Day, you can set an entry to repeat on the day of the week.
Specific date Entries
When adding an entry for a specific date, the course occurrence will only be displayed on that date in the appropriate Period or set times.
This works well in combination with the definition of Special Days with unique Bell Times when a class must be set to a period which is not the regular period. i.e. A Math Class occurs on June 5 during Period “Exam” defined in special Bell Times set on that day.
In schools where different bells apply to different levels of students, Tags must be applied to each schedule. Adding an entry in a section’s schedule then requires the use of the appropriate Schedule Tag or it will not appear.
When Terms are defined (see advanced configurations), each entry must have the appropriate Term tag as well or will not appear. You can have overlapping Terms (One Full Year tag, and a Semester 1 tag and a Semester 2 tag. A class occurence can apply to any one of these and will only be displayed in the appropriate date range.
Depending on how your data was provided, you may see all the section schedules repeat for each term.
