Each master data element is uniquely described with a name and a full name.





Room name

Select an appropriate abbreviation that uniquely describes the room in your school. For example SH1 for sports hall 1 or R10 for class room number 10.


Room full name

Enter a full name which describes the room in more detail.



Tip: Room names

We recommend that you include at least one character in each room name and do not use numbers exclusively (e.g. R10 instead of 10). This helps to avoid confusion with possible classes of the same name and increases the legibility of the timetable or cover schedule. Rooms should not be given the same names as classes (e.g. R1a for class 1a's classroom) as this would mean having to rename the rooms each school year.


You should enter alternative rooms and room weightingsfor automated scheduling.
