New Prime Timetable - more powerful and enjoyable scheduling

Prime Timetable Owl

Dear timetablers,
Ow(l)ing to your generous feedback and support, we have added tons of timetabling features ready for you to use as of today! New Prime Timetable enables even more timetabling scenarios and performance improvements that you can enjoy on any device you might be using: Mac, PC, tablet or smartphone. No plugins, no installation, it just works! Sounds interesting? Read on.

Automatic generation is 3 times faster than before

By utilizing the power of the latest modern browsers we have been able to drastically improve automatic generation performances. Just click Generate timetable and enjoy automated scheduling at its best. Use Firefox, Chrome or Safari for superior experience. If automatic improvements have no progress after a minute or so, it’s time to revise your data or constraints. Feel free to get in touch with our customer support at any time by choosing Help > Contact us.

Get notified upon any timetable change

The newly redesigned notification system will instantly warn you upon any change with updated notification number appearing in the top right corner. Clicking the bell icon will open a current list of all errors and warnings.

Instant notifications

If needed, some notifications can be ignored by pinning related cards. More in Help: http://www.primetimetable.com/help/notifications/

Subjects can be automatically scheduled more than once per day

If the new option Allow subject to be taught more than once per day is checked, you won’t be notified if the subject is scheduled more than once a day.

Maximum number of lessons in a row

When you set desired maximum number of lessons in a row for a teacher, the automatic generator will try to resolve this requirement and a notification will warn you if some of your staff is teaching more than allowed number of consecutive lessons.

Organizing rooms by room capacity, tags and names of buildings

In order to better organize and group rooms, you can now specify room capacity, room tags, e.g. "1st floor, lab", and building name. That way, when adding alternative rooms for the lesson, you can easily select all rooms on the 1st floor or all rooms with specific capacity/tag.

Minimize moves between buildings

After entering building names for rooms, set Allowed daily number of moves between buildings to minimize moves for staff members and let the generator do the magic. Additionally, the software can ignore teacher moves after the window.

Lots of other improvements

  • Displaying large timetables is 3 times faster.
  • Pinned cards have pin icon in the top right corner.
  • Awaiting cards are displayed in several rows in the individual view and when an awaiting card is dragged into the timetable, others are automatically reordered.
  • Saving changes while there is no internet connection is supported.
  • Better multi-touch support
  • Lots of smaller fixes and updates for iPad, iPhone and Android devices.

If you are currently using our plugin app and want to try new features, just select web app by choosing: Help > Options > Preferred App.

Hope you like the new improvements, and don't forget to give us a feedback, send us email or add your ideas to our online user voice. Happy scheduling!

Teachers and students have direct access to their individual schedules

When you tap/click the class or teacher’s name in the master schedule, an individual schedule is opened. Anyone can bookmark that page to the home screen of iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet, or pin that page to the start menu on Windows Phone, or create a web shortcut on Mac OS X, or just put it in the browser’s bookmark/favorites for easier access. Whatever you or your colleagues/students prefer.

No Wi-Fi? No problem. Schedules are available even offline

Once a colleague or a student has visited the published timetable they will be able to see it again any time they want and without internet connection! The master and all individual schedules are accessible offline. Even if you are stuck in the traffic without Wi-Fi, your schedule is always there. Again, no installation, no setup. It just works.

Choose your preferred app: web or plugin

Choose Help > Options > Preferred App and pick the app that best fits you. The web app works everywhere and will be automatically opened if you visit primetimetable.com using tablet or smartphone. The plugin app is available even offline as a desktop app and is up to 3 times faster when it comes to generating complex school schedules.

Two apps at the price of one. Up to 50% discount for multi-year purchase

Both web and plugin apps are available at the price of one. Plus, we offer special discounts (up to 50%) for multi-year purchase. Check plans and pricing and choose the plan that suits your school.
