Creating Timetable Periods

Timetable periods can be used to help align your attendance marks into set groups. We usually recommend only secondaries to use this feature as it is useful for schools with complex timetables where some scheduled sessions may overlap or change across different weeks.

Go to  School > Timetable > Timetable Administration > Timetable Settings.

One-week timetable periods

By default, your timetable will repeat each week. If you would like to change to a two-week timetable, see the section at the bottom.

To define timetable periods, click +Add in the Timetable Periods section.

In the slide over, choose the name of the period and the start and end time. This will define the start and end times for each period created for each day. Then click Add.

The timetable periods will then be created for each day.

Repeat this process for every timetable period you want to create. For example, for secondary with a one-week timetable may look something like this:

To edit the times of an individual time period, click the time period to change. In the slide over, amend the times then click Update.

Two-week timetable periods

By default, your timetable will repeat each week. If you would like to change to a two-week timetable, click to set this up. This allows you to set different timetable periods for each week.

Please be sure you want to use a two-week timetable, as once you select this option you will need to contact us if you want this process reversed.

You can amend a slot by clicking it. For example, if lunch is at a different time on week B.

Repeat this process for every timetable period you want to create. For example, for a secondary with a two-week timetable, it may look something like this. Notice in this example, the gap for lunch is different between week A and week B.
