Nova T6 - Changing Timetable Cycle
Hello all, I'm starting timetabling for the first time (have previously only altered the timetable for staff/room/period changes etc.), and I've roughly set up my new timetable for next academic year.
However, we're moving from a 6 (7 including reg am) period day to a 12 period day plus a non-teaching reg (half an hour doubles). When I try to import the band structure into SIMS (I just want to get the kids into Options!), T6 kicks up a fuss about the different cycle structures:
"Supplied timetable shape (5x(12+1)) does not match timetable cycle definition. (5x(7+0))"
I've tried defining the period times in T6, but that hasn't worked. The only thing that has allowed me to continue with the submission is to change the timetable cycle back to how it is for this academic year.
How can I convince Nova that I'm starting a new academic year differently?
