Department Scheduler Training
Welcome to Schedule Builder Videos! Our videos will teach Department Schedulers to set up, edit, and approve academic courses and sections. This video is the first in a series of three videos demonstrating how to add a new section to a course. In this video we will start the new section and edit the Basic Data tab.
Navigate to Maintain Schedule of Classes. For this video, I will use my previously saved favorite.
Complete the Search Criteria. I will select my previously saved search, “S20 Biology” and add Catalog Number 102 to edit Biology 102 for Spring 2020.
Let’s start with the Basic Data tab. I want to add Lab Section 18L. Maintain Schedule of Classes does not sort Class Sections, so I will navigate to Section 17L by selecting LAST.
Select the “+” to add a new section after 17L. Many of the fields auto-fill based on the Course Catalog; check them as you set up the course.
Don’t forget to SAVE! We recommend saving after each edit.
Start/End Date is on the right side. It should match the semester dates (excluding finals) for courses with Session 1.
Approved Section: do not check this box until all the tabs in Maintain Schedule of Classes have been set up.
Schedule Print: when this box is checked, the course will show up in Schedule of Classes. Ask the Campus Scheduler to uncheck this box if you do not desire this.
If you find errors on the Basic Data page, go to the Meetings tab and leave a note for the Campus Scheduler in Notes/Request. Please date and initial your requests.
