Timetabler offers course autoscheduling using EventMAP’s cutting-edge AI-based OPTIME™ scheduling engine to achieve fast, flexible and accurate timetabling solutions within universities and other learning environments. Timetablers can perform centralised and/or decentralised timetabling, schedule all resources (including students, staff and rooms), manage complex constraints (with a full range of preference/rule specifications for students, courses /modules and all resources), perform curriculum or enrolment based modelling, perform ‘what-if’ scenario modelling, and manage and share information with fully configurable reporting. Staff can submit course preferences, mark attendance, submit timetable feedback and generate reports within Timetabler. Students can view and download timetables, receive event and booking notifications and view workload reports.
Timetabler gives users the ability to define a wide range of constraints on high and granular levels to help the auto-scheduler arrive at the best possible solution. Timetablers have full control over which events are scheduled and can use these constraints to inform ‘what-if’ planning.
The built-in schedule adviser guides timetablers in achieving the best possible solution for their timetable. Staff can easily identify any clashes and see recommendations for available and suitable resources.
Before publishing timetables, timetablers can request feedback from specific staff members. This allows staff to view a draft of their upcoming timetable, provide comments and enable the timetablers to adjust events accordingly. Feedback responses can be marked off in a ‘to-do’ list style form.
