Training Videos

We have started to create training videos for scheduling. You can find them on our Videos page. If you have a suggestion for a video, please email Jill.

Updated Training Guides

We have updated our 25Live training guides in the right sidebar. NEW! We have created an Event Type for your Room Search Event. Please use "X DRAFT" as the event type when you create a new Room Search Event. All current Room Search Events that were using 25L Pullman Academic Event were updated. We were thrilled to see how many departmental Room Search Events are out there! Great job! You may want to set up a second search for Fall 2020, for example "Butch's Room Search - Fall". You can keep your Spring search and just update the dates for Spring 2021, if you like.

Schedule Builder Classes

Do you want a refresher on the Schedule Builder applications in myWSU? Are you new to scheduling and need access to Schedule Builder applications? For more information on access and training, find it in the Schedule Builder training pages. We do not have any classes planned for early 2020 as WorkDay is using our normal lab. Send Jill Freuden an email if you are interested in a class; we can set up a temporary lab in Lighty if needed.

Fall 2020 Initial Proofing CLOSES 12/8/19

We highly recommend that approve any section that you might want to use for Fall 2020, especially those upper level courses that don't require rooms. You can control enrollment using Enrollment Capacity and if you set it at 0, the course will not show up in Schedule of Classes. For more information on proofing, visit our Proofing page.

Fall 2020: Change Standard Meeting Times

To allow a buffer between MWF and TH standard meeting times when a course uses both times, such as MTWH, we have moved Tuesday/Thursday meeting times five minutes later starting at noon. For example, courses that were 12:00 to 1:15pm using the old meeting times will meet 12:05 to 1:20pm starting Fall 2020.

New Standard Meeting Times Chart

25Live Pro is live!

If you need help or training, see our guides in the sidebar, "25Live Pro Instructions" and "Room Search Event" for Academic Schedulers. We offered five Open Labs over three weeks. If you need further assistance, reach out to the scheduling team.

Final Proofing for Spring 2020 is CLOSED
