There are many segments and sub segments in this module which we will discuss briefly below.

Time Table

  • Configuration :- This segment of Time Table module is the soul segment and the most important segment because in this you have to configure and specify all the essential details required for the generation of time table. Details like how many seasons school follow for time table, what are the teaching periods time in your school, no. of teaching periods for a particular subject, if there are any optional subjects periods, or any periods which are taken by combining two classes should be entered in advance to make the generation process smooth. Before generating the time table make sure that these steps and data entry process is taken care of. Also it is necessary to configure the Teacher Duties and Class Subjects Duties in the Staff module before generating the Time Table. There are two sub segments in Configuration.

Configuration

  • Seasons/Periods :- This is very important section as almost all the important details are configured here. There are three configurations in this section.
      • First you will have to tell the system about the seasons.
      • In many schools, the time table is different and varies from season to season. For ex in summers the timing of school is different so the periods timing is changed and therefore the time table changes and in winter the timing again changes and so the whole process is changed.
      • So in this section we define the seasons for time table generation in school.
      • Enter the name of the Season and click on Add.
      • You can delete any Season if you want by clicking the Delete Button.

Seasons,periods

      • After creating the seasons, the next configuration which comes is defining teaching periods in the school.
      • In this you tell the system about the structure of periods in your school. Like what is the period starting time, end time, whether it is a teaching period or not etc.
      • Select the season from the drop down menu. (the season which you configure earlier will be shown here).
      • Select the class for which you have to enter the teaching periods.
      • Select the Day and click on Go.
      • Then in the box which appears, enter the period start time, end time, remarks (if any), check whether that period is teaching period or not and click on Add.
      • After adding all the periods click on Submit.
      • If you to copy this structure to any other class then select the class from the drop below and click on ‘Copy This Data To All Days For Selected Classes’ button.
      • After clicking, this structure will be copied to all the classes which you have selected for all the days.

      • After defining all the Teaching Periods, now you will have to tell the system that how many single and double periods you want for a particular subject of a particular class for a season.
      • Select Season from the dropdown, then select Class and click on Go.
      • There will a note in red color which will tell you what should be the total now of periods. (this depends on the period structure you created earlier).
      • The subjects configured in that class will be displayed below and in front of each subject there will be empty boxes which you will have to fill.
      • Enter the number of Single Periods which you want for that subject in a week.
      • Enter the number of Double Periods which you want for that subject in a week.
      • After doing entry for all the subjects, click on Submit.
      • Enter the periods for all the classes.
      • All this configuration which you are doing here is a pre-process and is very much important in generating timetable. The generation of Time Table completely depends on these configurations.

    • Optional/Combine :- In almost every school, students of higher classes have at least one or more than one optional subjects in their curriculum. And in some cases there are two class for ex XI sci and XI com, both have English as their common subject and is taught by the same teacher so in that condition the teacher take a combined period of that subject for both the class. So in this segment you can define the optional as well as combine periods for any class in your school.
