The way 'Lock (X) ', 'Ignore (i) ' and 'Text' work were explained in chapter ' Entries for all master data elements and lessons '.
(D) Respect double periods
Checking this box means that the number of allowed (desired) double periods must be respected for this lesson at all costs by the optimisation. This also applies when double periods have been excluded for a lesson ('0-0' in the field 'Double periods min., max.').
Please also note that an entry in the field 'Double periods min., max.' is required in order for double periods to be handled correctly.
Setting the (D) flag excludes the use of of the (2) flag.
(2) Subject allowed more than once per day (2)
Untis optimisation assumes that a subject may be scheduled for a class only once per day except when blocked periods or double periods are desired. You can use this flag to override these - highly weighted - boundary condition. Untis will then be allowed to schedule the subject as is assumed appropriate.
(R) Scheduling of fringe periods
Some subjects are not attended by all students of a class. Therefore they should preferentially be scheduled at the beginning or the end of a halfday, hours which are outside of the core timetable and are called fringe periods. Students not attending these subjects can either start school later, leave school earlier or their lunch break is longer.
According to the following weighting settings, fringe periods are preferably scheduled in the first or the last period of the day, however, not between the morning and the afternoon.
When a group is divided you can enter an appropriate group name in this field.
When transferring data to WebUntis, the student groups used in Untis are also transferred. In WebUntis you need to assign students to the individual student groups.
