Next Year Scheduling Linkage

Modified on Tue, Feb 20 at 3:16 PM

Class linkages allow you to link one course section to another so when a student is scheduled and they have requests for both courses, they receive a specific section.

You can set this up via Next Year Scheduling>Setup>Linkage.

  • Every course link you create ends up making 2 link definitions. One for Course Section A to Course Section B and one for Course Section B to Course Section A.
  • In order for the system to honor the class linkage, the students need requests for both courses.
  • A class linkage can create scheduling conflicts for students. Each linkage is a rule for the scheduler to follow, so if the linkage rules are set up poorly, it can cause more conflicts and fewer students will have full schedules.
  • A "Copy In Last Year's Linkages" now appears on the Next Year Scheduling>Setup>Linkage screen if no linkages exist in current school year. Hitting button will copy in all of the linkages that existed for this school in the previous school year.
