Unspecified time requests

previous  Top  next

It is also possible to enter unspecified time requests. The actual decision when these time requests will become relevant is made during automatic scheduling - dependend on all other elements.

 

You can accept a teacher's request for a day off on any day on the week by entering it in the lower part of the window.

 

 

 

Warning:

Unspecified time requests apply in addition to specified requests, i.e. they are cumulative.

 

 

In the example teacher Rub should be granted a day off (-3) as well as a free afternoon if possible (-2 ) during the week.

You can also block individual periods under "Unspecified blocks". The entry in the example would mean that teacher Rub should have periods 1-2 free on two days of the week.

 

 

 

Tip: Unspecified time requests

You should use unspecified time requests whenever possible. If a teacher needs a day off, for example, Untis will then determine the day (or half-day) to be kept free based on the specifics of the timetable. This avoids placing too many restrictions on scheduling and allows better timetables to be calculated.
