Generate Academic Schedules With Our Latest Guide

Ladies and gentlemen! Start your engines and open the windows to let the fresh spring breeze into your classroom! As we dust off our books from a long winter, it’s also time to set our sights on piecing together the puzzle that is the Schedule Maker process.

Don’t worry, though! The team here at Blackbaud has put together the framework for the schedule making process! Our latest guide places the spotlight on Schedule Maker.

This comprehensive guide features:
  • the basic requirements necessary to use Generate Master Schedule and Generate Student Schedule (the core components that comprise Schedule Maker).
  • Tips and tricks to maximize success rates.
  • Establish expectations by following workflow-focused scenarios.
  • How to modify the Master Schedule and Student Schedule once generated.
  • How to manually set up courses for fine-tuned scheduling precision.
There’s plenty more inside, so head over here to get started. We hope that this guide proves to make you and your faculty just a little bit more successful than you already are.

If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to subscribe to the K-12 Community for all our latest discussions, blog posts and more. Next week we’ll be serving up some information on Lists and how to get the most out of them.

Have any suggestions, feedback, or general thoughts? Let us know in the comments below. Thanks for reading everyone and happy scheduling!

Derek -

Woohoo! Thank you, thank you, thank you. As the individual who has built our master schedule for the past 20 year is retiring this spring - before building the master schedule for next year - this will be incredibly helpful to those of us who are fumbling through the process for the first time time this spring. I am very hopeful that in the coming months we will be seeinig more of these exceptional guides/resources/directions for other aspects of the system (setting up grade books, building assignments and assessments, the mast roll over, using class pages, mail merging, etc.)

Thank you!

Much appreciated guys, thanks for stopping by to check out this week's blog!

That's the plan, Scott! These guides are a big hit with schools, and it's something we're looking into expanding upon for the other products (where applicable) outside of onRecord. Stay tuned!
