Clicking on the 'Miscellaneous' tab you can enter or change the following settings:
Here you can set the number of automatic save intervals and how many auto-save generations should be archived. The settings in the figure mean, for instance, that Untis saves all data every 30 minutes and should save 6 auto-save generations. These data are saved in files called Save1.gpn, Save2.gpn, Save3.gpn to Save6.gpn. The most current data are always saved in the Save1.gpn file, the relatively oldest data in the Save6.gpn file. We recommend to check the box 'Save only when the data has been changed' in order to avoid saving identical files.
When you check the box “Open with the last file used“, Untis will automatically open with the last file you used. You can avoid this by holding the >Shift> key down while the program starts.
On this tab you can define different types of default paths. We recommend to create individual files for at least your back-up and optimisation files (these are the files in which all timetables of your school are saved during the optimisation process) and to enter the respective paths here. .
The number of the timetable version you can choose freely and is, for example, printed on the timetable print-outs.
With the different options in this chapter you can adapt Units to your own needs
Several warning messages can be turned off. Here you can activate and deactivate warnings.
Untis provides you with the possibility to be informed on version updates. You need to activate the option 'Automatically check the internet for programme up-dates' and you need to define how the internet should be accessed, via direct connection or via a Proxy server. If you are not sure about this setting, please ask your system administrator.
Via the <Test> button you can test, if the defined settings are correct and if Untis is connected to the Gruber&Petters web server. The following message will pop up, if Untis connected successfully.
