To allow for the need for increasing flexibility in Attendance Roll Marking PCSchool has made some changes to the Timetable Period Descriptions in Version 2016. Changes will allow schools to create periods for each day in the timetable where the number of periods in the day or length / duration of the period differs. To allow for this the ‘Code’ for each period has changed in format (is not system generated) and a Time Period column has been added.
Changes should not affect most schools, however if schools have previously assigned Year Level Restrictions to periods these may need to be revisited and updated to allow for the new logic as outlined below.
