Hello everyone,

I would like to suggest a new feature for FET Timetable that I believe would bring great benefits to everyone's organization and time management.
Currently, we have the ability to parameterize students by year and class for example
5th Grade
  • 5A
  • 5B
  • 5C
6th Grade
  • 6A
  • 6B
  • 6C
...

My suggestion is to implement a similar feature for teachers.

The idea would be to allow the creation of groups and subgroups of teachers. For example:

English Teachers Group
  • English 1
  • English 2
  • English 3
Philosophy Teachers Group
  • Philosophy 1
  • Philosophy 2
Mathematics Teachers Group
  • Mathematics 1
  • Mathematics 2
  • Mathematics 3

This parameterization would make it easier to organize meetings that involve many teachers.
Instead of selecting each teacher individually for the activities, we could simply select the desired group, ensuring that all teachers in that group are considered for the activities.

I hope this suggestion is considered and that it can be useful for many FET Timetable users.

Thank you for your attention and for the excellent work you have been doing!

Best regards,

Hi Volker,

I see that there is no easy way to manage this, we are adding activities and alocating with the constraint A set of activities as a set of prefered starting time.

Suggestions / New feature (That's Easy ;) )
April 29, 2023, 12:04:41 AM
Hi,

We are currently working on ending the school year and arranging all student timetables to ensure that all classes finish on time.

To achieve this, we replicate one timetable for 6 or 7 weeks to determine the number of classes of each subject required to complete the total number of classes.

I have noticed that having a button to deactivate an activity in the timetable view, just like the one that currently exists in the activities section, would make it much easier to manage timetables, we can manage this by see the activitie ID and going to the Data-> activities and Deactivate, but in the Timetable view is better and fast.

However, it should be a note saying that deactivating an activity could have certain limitations that might prevent the timetable from being generated correctly because some related constraiants.

Hi,

Check the file in your email.

I have already finished creating all the activities for the 10th grade. If there is no easy way to replicate the same timetable for other weeks, I will have to manually create all activities and schedule them for the same hour and weekday to the others weeks.

Hi Volker,

What I mean is that it's necessary to create a schedule with 5 equal weeks and then gradually deactivate activities that end before the final date in order to optimize schedules.
This is because some subjects end as early as May 15th, but students only finish classes on June 7th for those taking national exams and June 14th for other courses. If we don't change the schedules, some subjects will end on July 7th, which cannot happen. There is a certain amount of training volume to be completed in these courses.

So we need to have only one fet file with all weeks.

One question, TiTiTo can import one week and export 5 weeks to the fet software? If yes this is the solution that I need.

Good afternoon! In September, a weekly schedule was generated for the school, which remained the same throughout the months, from Monday to Friday. However, now, nearing the end of the school year, it is necessary to generate a new schedule for the next 5 weeks, with each week having a different program. To do this, a suggestion would be to initially generate a standard schedule for the 5 weeks in the FET software, ensuring that all weeks are the same. How can I do this?

Check the 2 images attached.

Hi Liviu,

What about this new constraint?

An activitie starts a teacher day?

Is usefull for situations when the teacher don't star to work at the first hour.

Best regards

Hi Liviu,

In order to free the students' workload, on the days when they have more teaching hours, we need and avoid that two theoretical disciplines stay on those days at the same time.

Attached is an example of a simulation in subjects that could not be on the same day, where there are more teaching hours.

The subjects that could not be on the same day are highlighted, but can be one or the other, and not both on the same day.

How can we avoid this problem?

New condition? Or work with tags, but I can't find practical solution.

Thanks

Hello,

Another feature, to improve the timetable analysis .

Show activity restrictions information in the timetable dialog.

We need to use the activitie number to look up the restrictions.

It will be friendlier if we have this information in the activitie dialog.

Check the images.

Hello,

A lot of times we need to disable some activities, and to do that we need to enter the activity and unselect Active check box.

In the list of time and space constraints there is a button that can enable and disable the constraint, I think this is very useful to us in the activities list.

Hello Liviu,

I was trying to make a simulation with our timetable, the situation is with A - Lunch and the B - Sports, they can't be consecutive.

A - Lunch is not fixed, so I can't use "A set of activities has a set of a preferred starting time block",  and block the time after lunch for B - Sports .

Suggestion:

The Min Gap (hours) between a set of activities is the best solution, but this constraint make impossible this possible situation " Sports -> Lunch".

How possible is tho prepare a costume version for this constraint, Min Gap (hours) between a set of activities tag Ordered?

I now that I can do a virtual activities and make consecutive with Lunch, and make Sports "Not Overlapping with this new virtual activities", is simple to say but with 5 Lunch for each students set (40 classes) is a huge work to do, and will be activity by activity.

Perfect is working like I need.

Please considere to implement this constraint like the image I sent in the first post, will be usefull for this covid-19 situation, we need students social distancing, so is a easy way to do this.

Many Thanks for your great work.
