Generate a Fixed Timetable

Generate a Fixed Timetable

 

Basic settings

  1. Click on "Timetables" on the left menu and then on "New".
  2. Enter a name, choose a Time mode : 24h mode or 12h mode (with am/pm) and select "Fixed" type (selected by default), then choose a Start time, define a number of columns (The number of days for example), a number of cells. You can now click on "Save" to generate the schedule and set others parameters later.
  3. Choose if you want to display the title and the timescale. If yes, you 'll have to define a cell duration (default is 60). You have to use uniform activity's duration if you want to use the timescale in the Fixed mode, because the progression of the timescale cannot be different between cells. If you set it to "60" that means every cell should have a 60 minutes duration activity in it. If not your timetable will not have sense.
  4. Choose a background color for empty cells
  5. Define a custom height for cells (global height). Useful if you want to insert information inside cells with custom fields or "text in cell" information (see the timetable management article to see how to do that). Select the access group and status.
