Exporting timetables from SIMs to Excel
Over the last few years I've exported various timetables (All staff, All rooms, Free staff, Free rooms, Free teachers and the ones for each Year) from T4 into Excel using File/Copy to clipboard. These are jolly useful for a whole host of things and this year I've also used them as a basis for producing intelligible display timetables for offices and Year boards - with decent class names that apparently can't be put in in T6, teachers' preferred names and so on.
But of course, T4 is to go and our timetabler is extremely resistant to allowing me to have access to T6 ('it's so easy to save changes you've made by mistake') so has anyone any idea about how else I can get these bulk timetables exported?
I've ploughed through reports, but can see no way of getting them, and tried going through the 'print timetables' option which if I play with cell sizes, print to Acrobat, export to Word, then excel will do the trick. However it's a long and convoluted process, doesn't always come out right and goes through a T4 type screen anyway, so even that might go.
I suspect if there's a standard role our SIMs administrator can give me limited access to T6 that would be acceptable.
