    Question Stand-alone Time Table Creator

    I'm hoping someone can help me to help our Learning Support people.

    I've been asked to find a time table creation program for them to replace an old Access database that someone from the Jurassic period created.

    It doesn't have to be free, but free would be nice, it does have to be "easy" to use. What their definition of easy is I didn't dare ask.

    I asked them to try this program called FET but I'm told it is too complicated.


    Suggestions please? (Avoiding if possible the obvious one of RTFM for FET)

    Who supplies you school MIS? It is likely you already have a solution to use.

    We use Tiger Timetabling - I don't have much to do with it other than installing the client on machines, so I don't know how easy or otherwise it is to use.

    You can have a satellite version of NovaT that does not touch the existing database or setup... stands alone from the rest of the product. Should mention that to said powers

    Free trial : timetable software ... for timetabling school timetables ... for easier scheduling.

    EDIT: plus when the Man not from Del Monte comes around, it will export to SIMS or any other main stream MIS.
