In the Timetables view you create timetables for your resources by scheduling the events you have allocated to each of the weeks of your schedule. When you schedule an event in the timetable of one resource Mimosa automatically schedules it in the timetables of all the other resources required for the event, taking care that no conflicts occur.
If you only have one week in your timetables Mimosa will automatically allocate all your events to that week. If you have more than one week (defined in Options|Limits) you need to allocate your events to weeks in the Weeks View before you can schedule them in this view.
You can select the timetables and events in any order for scheduling and you can make bookings to timetables to prevent scheduling to inappropriate slots.
In this view you can:
If there exists at least one event with one or more resources, you can start scheduling periods. If the maximum number of weeks is set to one (=1) in Options|Limits there is no need to use Weeks view to allocate periods to weeks or terms. If this is not the case, go to this week and allocate some of the periods to weeks.
In Timetables view, when you select a week, only those events having periods allocated to that week are read into timetables. If you have only one week, the periods of all events and their periods are automatically read into timetables.
Note that you can edit only the timetable on the top left (the active timetable). All changes are automatically reflected to other related timetables. When you activate an event, all other timetables connected to this event are shown on the right. When you double-click a timetable on the right, it becomes then the active timetable. You can adjust the width and height of the active timetable by moving the mouse to the locations shown below and clicking the appropriate arrow keys:
Note that you can view timetables also in Bird's eye view. This displays all timetables on top of each other horizontally, enabling to compare their content.
At the start you should see a timetable full of green check-marks () to indicate that you can schedule a period anywhere in the timetable, like in the timetable below.
If you cannot see this view, click the screen and Mimosa tells you the reason for that:
Note that you will edit only the cells of the timetable on the top left. Other timetables you see on the right provide you automatically additional information of other timetables related to the event you are about to schedule.
You can press the [F3] key or click to search for the next timetable containing at least one unscheduled period. The timetable you edit is located in the top-left corner of this view, and in this timetable you can schedule and remove periods or bookings. Other timetables on the right of this view are automatically displayed according to the resources of the active event to help you to visualise how the changes affect to all related timetables.
If you like to view and schedule periods of the specific timetable, event or week, you can use the list boxes on top to find the appropriate item.
Next, double-click some of the cells containing the check-marks () to schedule periods. Double-click is the simplest way to manually schedule individual periods and it also works other way round: double-click to remove already scheduled periods from the timetables.
Double-click the cells until all check-marks have disappeared from the current timetable, indicating that this timetable is completed. You can then press the [F3] key or click again to search for the next timetable to be scheduled. Note that Mimosa automatically schedules the periods of the current event to other timetables which are linked to it and it automatically takes care that conflicts cannot occur.
You can select the next event to be scheduled from the event list below the timetable. Mimosa displays here only those events which are related to the current timetable.
The columns ALLOC and SCHED contain the numbers of allocated of and scheduled periods of each event on all weeks, respectively. The column LEFT is equal to the number of unscheduled periods = allocated periods - scheduled periods of each event on this week. When all periods of all events of the current timetable have been scheduled on this week, this list becomes empty. Events in this list are sorted in descending according to the unscheduled periods, and if you do not pick any event from the list, Mimosa automatically selects the first event from this list.
Note that you can schedule only the periods that have been allocated to the current week in Weeks view. In some cases you may like to adjust the number of unscheduled periods (in the LEFT column) instantly, without switching to Weeks view. If you note during the scheduling process that you like to increase or decrease the numbers available periods on some events.
You can adjust also in this view the numbers unscheduled periods one by one, without switching to Weeks view. Right-click to show the pop-up menu with the following selections:
You can also type "+" to increase and "-" to decrease the number of LEFT periods. When you type the number "0" or select "Set LEFT to zero", the unscheduled periods of this event on this week are cleared and the event is removed from the list.
When you select to change the numbers (or unscheduled periods) in the LEFT column, they also automatically adjust the allocated periods of the current event and week in the Weeks view. For example, if you have the number +3 in the LEFT column, it means that you still need to schedule 3 periods of this event.
If you note that some of the periods of the current timetable are not allocated to the current week, you can add one period of this event to the current week, by selecting Add a new event to this week. When you have selected this option, it displays all relevant events that you could schedule in the current timetable, but you have not allocated any periods to this week in Weeks view. Selecting an event from the list adds one period to the current week and also to the list of unscheduled events.
When you have scheduled all events of this timetable, the events list becomes empty. You can then switch to some other timetable to find unscheduled events or press the [F3] key to let Mimosa do the searching for you.
When you have scheduled more and more periods, you will note that less and less cells become available and a red stop sign () is displayed on those cells. This is caused by the other events using the same timetable as you are currently using.
In those cells where you can and where you cannot schedule, you will also occasionally see numbers (or "indicators") in brackets:
When you select an event, you will see on the right also the timetables of other resources of that event. For example, if the event consists of a group, teacher and room and you are about to change the timetable of the group, also the timetables of the teacher and room are visible. This enables to view how the changes affect to other related timetables and which events or bookings prevent you from scheduling the current period. You do not need to schedule the event to these timetables separately, since all other relevant timetables are always automatically updated when you change the timetable on top left.
You can change the contents only in the timetable on the left, but you will see the same indicators also in the timetables on the right and when changes are made in the timetable on the left, they are automatically reflected to the other timetables as well. Double-clicking a timetable on the right moves it to the left.
The indicators and the numbers guide you in the scheduling by showing information also of those timetables which are not currently visible. When you schedule, it is a rule of thumb to prefer those slots which have a big positive number, since on average it will keep the number of gaps low.
You can select to display or hide the indicators in View|Cell display options|Show indicators. When scheduling or removing periods, you will also see the "hint box" on the right of the timetable guiding you about the basic operations you can do on the active cell. To show or hide these hints, select [Ctrl+Alt+H].
If you are about to schedule or remove several periods with one click, first paint an rectangular area in the timetable and click the [Insert] button () or the [Delete] button (), respectively. For instance, you may like to schedule a row of periods on the same day or clear a range of selected cells.
In similar way, you can set and remove bookings, which indicate that the cells where they have been set, are not available for periods in that timetable. Select the area in the timetable and press the [SPACE] key (or click ) to set bookings or cancel them. You can select from three captions of bookings and you can change them in Edit|Change booking type. You cannot schedule periods on cells where bookings have been set, and you cannot set a booking to a cell where periods have already been scheduled.
After you have scheduled all the periods in all timetables, the screen looks like the one below:
The colours of the events displayed in each timetable are selected by Mimosa, unless you have not set colours to them in Events view. If you like to change the colour palette Mimosa is using, go to Options|Colours.
You may also note that:
There are several ways to navigate to the desired timetable, event or week you like to start with. If you are using this view for the first time, you can do the following:
If you see resources, events and weeks listed in the list boxes on top of the screen you can start creating timetables. Although you can create then automatically (in Tools|Optimise|Initial solution), we recommend that you start from here, since it is more than probable that you like to edit the timetables manually sooner or later. Even if you prefer to create timetables automatically, there always will be some need to alter the current solution, and also to place some of the periods into predefined slots.
periods of the events are automatically scheduled in the timetables of their resources. When scheduling or removing a period, the changes in other connected timetables of this event are automatically changed. You can alternatively schedule the event immediately when you create or edit events in Events view, as described in Instant scheduling. In both cases, changes always affect the same timetables in a similar way.
If you have several weeks or terms in the school year, you first select the timetables of the week you are going to edit from the Weeks list on the top right. After that you might like to select the timetable from the Resources list. If you do not see green check-marks in the current timetable, select another timetable from the list or click [F3] to let Mimosa automatically find the next incomplete timetable for you.
If all periods of the current week or term have been scheduled, you are prompted to move to next week or term (if it exists).
You need to be focused only on the timetable which is located on the top left, while Mimosa automatically takes care of all background tasks needed to keep all other timetables synchronised and Mimosa informs also about possible scheduling options. When you change the active event, the other timetables are changed according to its resources. Double-clicking a timetable on the right moves it to the active timetable to the top left.
In order to use this option, the selection View|Cell display options|Show move options must be checked.
After all periods of an event have been scheduled, it is easy to move a sequence of periods to some other location within the timetable with just one mouse click. When you click the active time table cell twice, Mimosa displays all other available locations for the active event using the move icon () and a blue number in brackets. Note that you can also split the current sequence of periods in two parts, and the available locations are indicated for the rest periods in the sequence. When you click this cell again, move options disappear.
The same operation can be performed in two stages, by first removing the current sequence and scheduling it into the new location, but using the move option saves unnecessary mouse clicks and you can also see in advance all available options.
Instead of clicking the first period of the sequence (Tuesday, 1st slot), you can also click the second one (Tuesday, 2nd slot), to gain more options to move the rest of the sequence to another location (by clicking some of the green slots):
|Tuesday, 1st slot: 3 move options (of 3 periods)||Tuesday, 2nd slot: 7 move options (of 2 periods)|
If you click the third period of the sequence (Tuesday, 3rd slot), you have even more options, and when you decide to click the green slot (at the first slot in Wednesday), the period is moved to the new location:
|Tuesday, 3rd slot: 14 move options (of 1 period)||Moved from Tuesday, 3rd slot to Wednesday, 1st slot|
You can Undo and Redo all operations (up to last 2000 steps), such as scheduling, removing and moving of periods and bookings, using the buttons () and (), or the shortcuts [Ctrl+X] and [Ctrl+Y], respectively. In the Edit menu selection you can also Undo all and Redo all changes, and also set a bookmark to the state you want to revert back later on.
It is also possible to first paint a rectangular area of slots on Master timetable and then use selections to schedule or remove periods or set or cancel bookings in this area:
Use the Timetables list or the arrows keys (down and up) to select the timetable on the top left corner. You can then click the event to be scheduled from the List of unscheduled events below. When you click an event in the timetable, Mimosa automatically displays also all related timetables.
Colours and other effects are used to make timetables more legible, but you might find that the cells are stacked with information that is not currently useful for you. Please go to the selection View|Cell display options to deselect those elements that are not essential.
When the timetables are printed or published, all cell contents are replaced by the event codes, names and collections, depending on your preferences set in the File|Print|Timetables selection.
Cells containing bookings (restrictions) are shown in red (like ////) colour.
A cell in each timetable can be in three exclusive states: it can be either empty, it can contain a event or a booking. The appearance of cells may look different on your screen, depending on the selections that has been made in View|Cell display options. Below are samples of different cell statuses and how they are displayed on Master timetable.
All events of the current timetable have already been scheduled. Double-click the cell to set a booking on it. If this cell constitutes a gap between nonempty cells, you can optionally emphasize it with an icon (View|Cell display options|Show gap picture).
The active event can be scheduled into this cell, but it causes two ([-2]) gaps. Double-click this cell to schedule a period in it.
The active event cannot be scheduled into this cell, since one ([-1]) of the timetables prevents this operation. Double-click this cell to find timetable(s) preventing scheduling.
From the current cell, a sequence of two ([2h]) periods of current event can be moved to this cell.
Event DRA405/SEA646 is scheduled in this cell. Double-click the cell to remove the scheduled period from this cell. You can also optionally display the manual room (m) and/or cell comment (c).
This cell of a Room timetable has been scheduled to an event (FOR744) manually. Double-click once to change it to a booking, double-click twice to clear it.
The active cell contains a booking (of type Meeting). Double-click to remove the booking from the cell, double-click to set it again. Click [Ctrl+O] to change the booking text.
In general, the fastest way to use and learn the basic techniques of this view is to double-click individual cells in the master table (on the top left corner) to see how scheduling and removing of periods or bookings functions in different situations. This double-clicking technique can then be extended to all other tables and lists that you see in this view. If you often schedule periods as blocks (double, triple periods,...) instead of single cells, right-click the pop-up menu on the master table and change the parameter in selection Default block length.
When you progress in scheduling, typically less and less free slots become available and scheduling becomes more demanding. This is caused by the increasing dependencies of events and their resources. It is a good practice to start from the events containing the largest number of the resources and have limited options to schedule.
This selection cancels the latest action (schedule, remove, move, swap, resource change) you have made on this week. Up to 2000 steps can be undone. If another view is activated or you have changed the current week, the undo stack is cleared. After at least one change has been made, the caption in this selection displays the number of actions that you have made so far - such as "Undo last (of 123 steps)".
Redo selection redoes the last action that was undone (cancels the latest cancel action). This selection is an opposite to Undo. After at least action has been undone, the caption in this selection displays the number of actions that can be redone - such as "Redo last (of 56 steps)".
Set bookmark stores the action that was just performed. If you are about to make a lot of changes to timetables, but you are unsure if the upcoming changes will improve the result, you can store the current state with this selection. If you later on will regret latest changes and want to go back to bookmarked state, select Go to bookmark.
Go to bookmark goes back to the step that was previously stored by Set bookmark. If you have not stored any previous action, this selection is disabled.
Undo All cancels all previous actions stored in memory (opposite to Redo All).
Redoes all previously undone operations (opposite to Undo All).
History selection shows the history of the last actions (of the maximum of 2000 last actions that were stored). Selecting an item on the list of actions and accepting it with the [OK] button moves you to the selected step. This selection is disabled if you have not made any action (schedule, remove, move, swap, resource change) yet.
Each line on this view is shortcut of the action that was made. For instance, the notation [Swapped] DRA266 and SHI503 between "Mon 14:00...15:45" and "Fri 09:00...10:45" [2h] means that Mimosa interchanged the locations of two blocks the events (coded "DRA266" and "SHI503") across the shown time periods. Swap is an operation that can be done only by Quick optimisation, all other operations can be performed manually.
This selection enables you to optimise the timetables of the current week by minimising the number of their gaps (empty cells between blocks on the same day). This will result in more compact timetables. The same settings are used here as in the selection Tools|Optimise. For instance, if you have by default selected not to change the locations of locked events, they are not changed in this selection neither.
In case some of the periods have not been scheduled yet, you have the option to let Mimosa do that for you. Select [Yes] to let Mimosa schedule the remaining periods and select [No] if you want to go directly to optimise the periods that have already been scheduled. Select [Cancel] to cancel optimisation.
When the optimisation is running, you can always interrupt it by clicking [Cancel] and then select to resume or stop it. The progress bar shows the current number of gaps as compared to the number of initial gaps in the timetables.
After the optimisation Mimosa shows you the number of those gaps that were removed, the initial number of gaps before optimisation plus the total number of changes that were made in timetables to achieve this. Optimisation time takes from a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes, depending on the number of timetables and the complexity of their structure.
If you select [Yes], the optimisation history is displayed and you can select to go back to any previous step that was made during optimisation.
Optimisation neither joins two blocks nor breaks them. This operation is always left to be done manually. The number of gaps in the timetables is not the only quality criteria for good timetables. You might like to go through the changes that has been made, improve the solution manually or cancel all or some of the actions with the help of selections Undo, Undo All, Go to bookmark or History.
This selection contains ten formats to copy timetables to the Clipboard and one format for the timetable bookings. You can use these timetables as snapshots that you probably want to paste to a spreadsheet application, decorate them with borders or some other effects for printing or distributing to others. In selections 1 through 4 you can copy the contents of the timetables to the Clipboard also in line format instead of table format.
The description of the available Clipboard formats in this selection can be found in Import and Export with Clipboard|Timetables view.
This selection contains two ways to paste bookings from the Clipboard. The descriptions of the available Clipboard formats in this selection can be found in Import and Export with Clipboard|Timetables view.
The selections Edit|Paste from the Clipboard|1 Bookings to current week and Edit|Paste from the Clipboard|2 Bookings to all weeks are mirror selections to Edit|Copy to the Clipboard|11 Bookings. They both use the same format:
If you often like to schedule several periods at once, paint a rectangle in the timetable where you want to schedule periods and click the [Insert] button. The application checks all free slots and schedules periods accordingly. If you mostly schedule single cells, double-click the cell to make the changes.
Unschedule is the opposite action for Schedule. Highlight a rectangle in the timetable (by keeping the left mouse button down and dragging) and click Delete button or [Delete]. All removable periods are taken and unscheduled periods are returned to the list below the timetable.
Double-clicking the cells is the quickest and simplest way to edit individual cells in timetables and to schedule and remove periods. Try also the more efficient operation Move. When scheduling or removing several periods at once, paint the cells in the timetable and click the [Insert] or [Delete] buttons.
This selection clears all scheduled periods of the current event in this week and adds them back to the list of unscheduled periods below the master timetable.
You can change the current event information (such as the resources attached to this event) as you can do in selection Create and edit events.
This selection searches for the next the event to be scheduled and changes the active timetable accordingly.
You can make bookings or cancel them by highlighting the appropriate area in the current timetable and then either pressing the [SPACE] or the appropriate button. Those cells, which contain bookings, are then freed and free cells are booked.
Useful tips to change and copy bookings effectively:
Select the default booking type for timetables among the three choices defined in Options|Categories or change the text of the current booking type.
This selection locks or unlocks the current event. If the event is locked, all changes to weekly allocated and scheduled periods are prohibited.
All events that are scheduled in the current timetable become locked. This function is useful, if you want to freeze the current solution.
All events that are scheduled in the current timetable become unlocked. This function frees the previously frozen solution.
Replaces the active resource (associated with the master timetable) of current event with another permissible (or non-conflicting) resource of the same category. See also Replace resource.
When a cell containing a lesson of an event is selected, its Room can be replaced (if it already exists) or a new room can be added (if it does not exist) with this selection.
It you have more than one week or term, it lists also those rooms where the replacement or addition is permitted when limited only for THIS WEEK (=the current week) or NEXT WEEKS (=the current week plus all remaining weeks).
These options are listed below the line --- Rooms below cause conflicts --- since these operations will cause conflicts in other weeks. It is sometimes common to change rooms in this way even thought it is normally against what Mimosa allows you to do. When you have already passed the first week and you are creating timetables for the second week, it is not relevant if the rooms conflict in the previous week (which is already history). If it is more important to find a solution, with no conflicts in the current week and upcoming weeks - then you select NEXT WEEK.
If you are forced to think each week separately (and assuming that the problems of the upcoming weeks will have new solutions), you may be forced to select a room under the title THIS WEEK, which finds room replacements or additions that are valid only in the current week (but not in the upcoming weeks).
Rooms marked with the highest status ALL WEEKS can always be chosen without any fear of conflicts, since the change is checked for all weeks.
All possible conflicts can be checked and removed with the command Tools|Check for conflicts, if necessary.
If you see an event code preceded with MSR, this indicates that the room for this event is a Manually selected Room (see Tools|Select rooms manually).
(Check first that you have initially selected the right category in Options|Timetables to represent the resources that are called ROOMS. This is by default the third category)
If there are no rooms associated with the event, you can select the room for each slot separately, as in selection Tools|Select rooms manually. If the current event has this property and it is scheduled in this slot, you can replace its current manual room selection or add a new selection, if it has not been selected yet.
You can add a comment to each cell in timetables to be printed along with timetables. The comments are stored in Mimosa file.
Erase “Comment” erases the existing comment in the selected slot, Change “Comment” or Add comment enables you to replace/add the comment text in the selected slot, Generalise comment lets you to expand the same comment to larger time-space and code set. This option is enabled only when you are adding a new comment.
Each line in this file starts with a number that represents the week, day and slot (time period), followed by the code of the resource it is attached to. These fields are separated by semicolons(;) and you can also edit this file like any other text file.
Example comment lines:
;Form-A;This is the 1st week’s 5th slot in Thursday... ;Form-B;This is the 12th week’s 6th slot in Wednesday...
Note that the comments in this file do not follow the changes of the locations of the lessons or bookings in timetables. If there is not enough space for comments, you can Remove comments from previous weeks when you leave this selection.
You can copy the comments to the Clipboard by selecting Edit|Copy to the Clipboard|7 Comments by category.
Comments are printed also in empty cells. In those cells where you have made bookings, the comment replaces the text.
When you click on the cell which has a comment on it, you can copy this comment (say "Holiday") to memory and paste it to other cells with the Paste comment option. The copy comment selection is disabled, when the clicked cell does not have any comment on it. When you click Copy comment, the Paste comment selection becomes enabled.
When you have copied a comment (with Copy comment on a cell which has a comment), you can paste it to other cell(s) either in the same or another timetable, or in the same or another week. Click a single cell or paint a rectangle area and click Paste comment to add the latest stored comment to the selected cell(s). Paste comment becomes enabled after you have clicked Copy comment on a cell with has a comment on it.
Sets the default block length (as also specified in Options|Timetables). When you set this parameter to other than 1, double-clicking will change blocks of the length that you specified here.
This selection copies the selected items (active event, all events in the timetable or bookings) from the current timetable week to the range of selected weeks (or terms). This enables to create identical event schedules or bookings patterns across weeks instantly. This option is useful, if the events or bookings are often recurrent and it is desirable that they are scheduled in the same time on other weeks, to create similar (or close to similar) timetables on selected weeks. When you activate an event in the timetable (and you have defined more than one week), this selection becomes enabled.
You have the following copy options:
You are next asked to select the week range to copy. Finally you can select to Clear previously scheduled periods of the selected event(s) and/or bookings from the target week(s) before copying??. If you answer No, the events and/or bookings you are going to copy are merged with their current schedules.
Copying never overrides existing other events or bookings. Therefore the number of event and bookings periods you are going to copy is often larger than the number of periods that was actually copied.
The week where you copy schedules from may contain more periods than it was previously allocated to target week(s). You can let Mimosa reflect this situation and automatically adjust the periods of the target weeks accordingly [Yes], or keep the weekly periods of the target weeks as they were before copying ([No]).
If you are about to copy several events and bookings at once, you can alternatively go to Weeks view, and use the selections Edit|Copy week to first activate the source week (a column in week grid) and then Edit|Paste or Edit|Paste week Special to define the destination week(s) plus the items you want to copy.
When at least one of the periods of the current event is not yet scheduled, this selection displays a list of options of how you can change the resources of other events to add new free slots and it also enables you to make the replacement immediately.
This tool is useful when scheduling is demanding (there seems to be more unscheduled periods left than there are free slots in the timetable). If you have some degrees of freedom in change the event collection (such as rooms or teachers), this tool displays these additional options to you and marks the appropriate slots in the active timetable.
Click some of the unscheduled events on the list below the timetable. When the What if? button or menu selection becomes enabled, click it to display a menu showing what you can do:
"What if" options (4): Replacing the shown event resource can add (2...4) free slots to schedule periods of event "CAS-12D" in the timetable *1 : ING-12 (513 -> ?) 0+4 = 4 free slots *2 : EFI-12 (12D -> ?) 0+2 = 2 free slots *3 : OPC2-12 (12D -> ?) 0+2 = 2 free slots *4 : MAT-12 (513 -> ?) 0+2 = 2 free slots
The numbers *1, *2, *3 and *4 are also shown in the timetable (*1 appears 4 times, others two times). When you select *2, for instance, you will gain 2 free slots in the timetable, if you replace resource 12D of event EFI-12 by some other resource of the same category.
This selection is designed to change the appearance of the view and also to find the appropriate table on the top left corner.
This selection enables to change the font both in the master timetable and timetables linked to it.
Selects the default font used in all elements of this view, except the master timetable on top left.
Selects the font used in the master timetable on top left.
This selection includes all commands that you can use to change the appearance of the cells in the master timetable. Selecting too many options can make master timetable look too cluttered, but selecting too few options may sometimes show less useful information than required. In most cases, selecting the default (factory setting) options are most appropriate when considering the timetable cell size limitations.
Indicators are the numbers in brackets ([+2],[-3]) that give the user additional background information about the desirability of the permissible cells and the degree of difficulty of forbidden cells. If this option is not selected, the numbers are not shown. For instance, [-1] on the (red) cell where you cannot schedule periods indicates that there exists one timetable which prevents scheduling, whereas [+2] on the (green) cell where you can schedule a period indicates that you can reduce the total number of by 2.
If this option is selected and you have manually scheduled a room for the current cell, it is indicated by the letter min the bottom left corner of the cell. See more about manual room selection in Tools|Select rooms manually.
If this option is selected and you have added a comment to the current cell, it is indicated by the letter c in the bottom right corner of the cell. You can add a comment to a cell with the command Edit|Comment this cell or using the keyboard shortcut [Ctrl+E].
When all periods of the current event have been scheduled and you have selected this option, has been selected, all possible one-click move options are displayed, if you click the same cell twice. If you like to move the current period (or a sequence of periods) to this new slot, click the cell with a move indicator (). The number on the right indicates the length of the sequence you can move. Move minimises the needed keystrokes, since you don't need to remove the periods from the old slot(s) before scheduling them in the new slot(s).
When selected, a picture of a walking man is displayed in cells constituting a gap (or a hole) between periods and/or bookings. This option has only a decorative purpose.
This option shows a tooltip on top of master timetable related to the cell content and actions. This tooltip is shown on the bottom right of the master timetable. It gives a short hint of what you can do at the current cell.
Selects all cell display options.
Selects default display options (File|Profile|Factory settings).
Clears all default display options.
Shows event codes in timetables instead of names.
Shows names in timetables.
Shows event codes and names in timetables.
This selection displays the contents of the timetables of the current week horizontally. The first column contains the names of the resources and the other columns the cells of the timetables by the day of week. When you click a cell in this view, the current resource is activated and the content of the event in that cell is displayed. If your file contains more than one week, you can click the Next week and Previous week buttons (,) on bottom to view the timetables of other weeks. You can change the widths of the columns in this grid with pop-up menu selections.
You can copy the contents of the current view to the Clipboard with the Copy button (to be pasted to other applications). When you go back to the default view (by typing [Ctrl+B]), the current timetable and the selected slot becomes active.
Displays the list of the resources (collection) of the active event. If you also want to replace some of the resources, remove or add a resource, select the appropriate resource and then click Edit? button, enabling to edit the event structure without switching to Events view. See the page Event Info for more information.
Displays the list of free resources of similar category with the current timetable resource. Those resources are listed which have empty cells in all slots of the currently selected area.
By entering the code or name (or a substring) locates the first timetable that matches the search criteria and makes it the active one. The search method is not case-sensitive.
Sets the first table as the active table.
Sets the previous table as the active table.
