Section Timetables

Asked by Larissa Gaias on 2016-02-09

I am using an excel spreadsheet to upload my data into SchoolTool and I am trying to assign a schedule to each of my sections. However, it asks for a "Day ID" and I don't know what that is. I have tried the actual names of the days of the week, I have tried "Day 1" etc. as it is written in the sample data set, just the numbers 1-5, and M,T,W,Th,F, but nothing has worked and I continue to get the following error:

SectionTimetables
-----------------

is not a valid day id for the given timetable:
A9-12

Is there somewhere where I am supposed to define the day IDs? I can't seem to figure it out.

Thank you!

Larissa

You need to create a timetable. See: http://book.schooltool.org/timetables.html

Yes, I created a timetable. I am now trying to schedule sections into the timetable, but I cannot figure out the Day IDs. I did it manually but I'd like to know how to do it through the spreadsheet for future reference. Thank you!

Ah, yes. We don't really support using the SectionTimetables sheet for manually setting up section schedules, but it should be possible. If you do an export and look at how the days are defined in column A on the School Timetables sheet, that might help.

Can you help with this problem?
