How do I Manually Schedule Timetable Slots?

You can manually set up a timetable by first manually adding all your courses, classes and lessons on Arbor, if you haven’t already done so. More information on how to add Courses and Classes to Arbor, can be found here.

If you have imported your timetable via Timetabler, you will need to schedule the lessons to complete the setup.

Once you have added all your Courses and Classes to Arbor, review your Timetable Slots. Go to 'Timetable Slots' under 'Setup' of the Timetable module.


On this page, ‘Provisional’ timetable slots will not appear on any timetable outputs such as the school timetable. Review each timetable slot one-by-one and make sure that everything is correct. Then, select the timetable slot(s) you are happy with using the checkbox and click on ‘Schedule.’  These timetable slots will be moved to the ‘Scheduled’ tab of the page as they are now live on your system. To view the live timetable, you can explore the School, Staff, Student and Room timetable outputs.

For primary schools just using registration forms, go to 'Setup' >> 'Registration Forms' on the Timetable module. Here you can select the registration forms you want using the checkboxes, and schedule AM and PM registration form times.
