Quotedidn't use the last version because I didn't want to show the not-available crosses -x-
Quotehi all,tomorrow we are starting the school year with the timetables generated with FET 5.6.2 (I didn't use the last version because I didn't want to show the not-available crosses -x-The timetables have come up 100% normative compliant and 98% teachers' wishes respected. It was a very difficult timetable with many subjects with different teachers and groups, and space constraints, etcThanks very much for your work and for sharing it.
Quotesure I will leave a comment, as soon as I discover how to I will send you the fet file, too, with plasure. Just let me delete the surnames of the teachers if you don't mind, as there is a private data policy in my country and I can't share that information. Will you need further explanation to understand the timetables? how do you usually deal with those files?
Quoteok, I'm removing the constraints. You'll see it as it came out, without all activities with a room, so you'll see what I mean. I had to add the rooms by hand. As soo as I have it ready I'll send it.
Quoteoh, don't worry, those timetables were finished and handed by september 9th. I don't hink this can apply to my timetables because if students get dummy classroom R1+R2+R3 it's ok, but if teacher get the same classroom in their timetables, they won't know to which classroom they have to attend. Many years ago I used a timetables software which dealt with classroom quite easely.it assigned as many rooms as you wanted to one activity, and you were able to change/add the room or the teacher o the students by right clicking. besides, a side dialog showed you the rooms that were free at that time of the day. I suppose this would be impossible or very difficult to do with FET. Am I right?I have the fet file ready. where can I send it?
Quotesorry, I forgot to give you more detailed info about the rooms issue. if I assign R1+R2+R3 to an activity, rooms R1, R2 and R3 will still be available for other activities, so they might be assigned, which would give me 2 groups in the same classroom on the first day of class. PANIC besides, I would prefer that the program assigns the home rooms + any other free classroom, so I don't have to think where can I put those tudents.In my high school we have 19 groups, which sometimes are more than that because they have optional subjects (each group divided by 4 or 5 teachers), they have divided classes for several subjects (half class is doing maths, the other half is doing English), and things like that. It's not easy, I know, but I've been able to manage very well with FET.
