Hello. I still have to run on older Macs. Occasionally I compile with Qt 5.13.0, it seems to allow running newer Fet versions on old MacOs.
I just compiled v.6.18.1. I'd share it (hoping to be helpful to other users) so please let me know if it could be uploaded somewhere.

Quote from: annamoscatelli on June 14, 2023, 02:14:13 PMBuongiorno sono Anna Moscatelli sono stata incaricata quest'anno di fare orario per la mia scuola primaria, vorrei scaricare FET ma io ho macOS 10.12.6 e la versione per MAC mi richiede l'11 e non so come fare per poter utilizzare il programma potete aiutarmi?

Buongiorno. Ho FET 6.15 compilato per MacOS Sierra 10.12.
(en: I have FET 6.15 compiled to work in MacOS Sierra 10.12)
Hello.  Is it possible to make "older versions" of FET for MacOS available for download?
I'd need the last (compiled) version compatible with MacOS 10.14.

Thanks in advance and best regards
Tips and Tricks / set only one lesson on saturday
March 29, 2023, 07:54:58 PM
Hello. In our Academy we avoid lessons on Saturday but not in any case.
I have set a break on Saturday to exclude that day from timetabling.
Now it happens that I have to place just one lesson on Saturday.
I'm going to set "teacher's not available time" on Saturday for all teachers except one (I don't want FET placing other lessons on Saturday).
Is there a quick way to do this without adding a lot of new constraints?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Excuse my obscure questions. I attached 2 pictures as examples:
- PIC_1 shows the result I wish in teachers timetabling.
- PIC_2 shows how 'academic activity' overlaps next activity

First of all thanks a lot for ALL your help.
I got into troubles:

1- created 'academic' activity for teacher Carl: no students, 2 hours.

2- set 'two activities are consecutive'  for Carl:
'subject 1' and 'academic'
Generate. OK. I get 'academic' consecutive to 'subject 1', Carl, same day.

3- set another 'two activities are consecutive'  for Carl:
'subject 2' and 'academic'
(please note that teachers have different subjects/activities)
Generate. ERROR. Can't schedule 'academic' activity (that's just one 'academic' related to Carl)

Tried with 'two activities are grouped' with same issues.

As suggested tried with 'activities occupy max time slots...',  'subject 1 + academic',  max slots=2
but I got 'academic' in different day (should be consecutive each day of Carl's lessons).

Is there a solution?

Thanks in advance

Please what is the correct way to assign to a teacher 2 hours of 'academic activity' to be consecutive (before of after) to 'lesson' hours?
Thanks in advance

Hello. I have a possible weird question.
We have a particular organization of teachers' activities.

In one working day:
Teachers 'A' have 3 hours of lesson plus 2 hours of academic activities.
Teachers 'B' have 6 hours of laboratory plus 2 hours of academic activities.
Academic activities should overlap.

Desired result:
Teachers' timetable should report all hours.
Students' timetable can avoid to report academic activities.

I doubt this could be done but I ask anyway because I'm a newbie!
It should be great to get similar instruction to compile the last version of "Fet to Excel by Roberto Trevisan" for MacOS (if possible)

Thanks. Yes I have a lot to learn about this powerful application.

Indeed I would that FET place activities starting always from 1st slot every day.
Instead I notice activities beginning at random slot even when all slots are free. That's why I was thinking to constraint preferred starting time for all activities.
Is there an easier way?

Hello. Is there a way to quickly assign preferred starting times for ALL activites in one shot? (of course with 95% constraints or so)
Thanks in advance

Hello. I noticed that the same FET file generates different timetables every times. I believe it's quite normal.
Sometimes little adjustments are needed but then the new timetables are possibly very different from previous. I know I can lock every single activity but it takes time.
Is there a way to lock all activities in one shot and then unlock just the ones that need adjustments?
In other words I would like to modify just a few activities and then generate exactly the last timetable (except for the new modifications).
Thanks in advance
