Quote from: Darren McDonald on March 20, 2021, 06:34:54 PMAs someone who uses FET and FET-BP, the possibility of combining them into a single version is very appealing, so I'm in favour of this idea. It would be nice (but a bigger job) to be able to export FET-BP timetables in a CSV format that could then be imported directly into the "regular" FET version. For example, to be able to export from FET-BP an activities CSV file with the "Days per week" data exported in the teachers column, and the Hour data exported as an activity tag (Block A, etc.). (Of course, these files would still need some manual work before import, with the split duration information adjusted, etc.)
QuoteI would also like the possibility of exporting/importing constraints. For example, sometimes I start a new year with a "fresh" FET file, and then import teacher lists, etc., from CSV files (usually exported from the previous year's FET file). Most teachers also have a homeroom (that typically doesn't change from year to year), but it isn't possible to export/import "A teacher has a home room" space constraints, so all of that information has to be re-entered. (Also, I sometimes have to share things like the teacher home room information with others, and so even just an export option for these constraints would be helpful.)
QuoteA few more Locking/Unlocking options would be helpful too. For example, "Lock all activities of a specified year group", "Lock all activities of a specified teacher", etc. (I usually accomplish this with activity tags, but that has sometimes required me to create a new tag and then tag all the relevant activities in order to get this done, which can be time consuming.)

Quote from: Liviu Lalescu on March 20, 2021, 06:46:07 PMI believe this is achievable now. Go to the timetable time horizontal view and select one or more rows, "Lock" or "Unlock".
