Multiple schedules in a school year
For instance, my morning classes are on a 4-day cycle, and my afternoon classes are on a 3-day cycle. Please change this so we can split the day into multiple cycles.
This is an important feature for all of the reasons that were already stated. One possible way to accommodate this would be to allow display of two school years at the same time. Then, I could set-up 1 school year with my rotating classes, and another with my M-F classes. Or, assign class days on the class level, not the school year level.

I think this would definitely beneficial overall, but definitely for specials in elementary. I teach physical education and my classes are on a three week cycle (I see a class for one week every three weeks).
I have two schedules that I follow - one is Monday - Friday and the other is a six day schedule. It would be wonderful if I could combine these two aspects in my planbook.
have a 6 day cycle for specials, i.e.. p.e., music etc.... and a Monday through Friday for classes such as reading, math etc.... and and area to click if there was a 2 hour late start, 1 hour late or early outs....

We have an early out schedule every wednesday but we also run our special class schedule based on 1-5. We would like to set our wednesday times to not be affected by the 1-5
For example-We have labs 2 of every 6 days. One lab class may meet CE day; another AB. If we could customize the dates for each lab class this could really help us keep track of where we were.
This would also work for teachers whose daily classes are on a rotation but also lead extra curriculars on certain days of the week. I could enter my classes on a 5-day rotation and my after-school activities on tuesdays and thursdays.

This could be beneficial for me because I teach 2 different classes simultaneously and need to see both planbooks separately.

Wow, that just sounds awfully confusing!

Same here. Grades 1-5 are on a 6 day rotation, and K is on a four day rotation.

I have the same thing at my school with different schedule rotations for different classes. However, my schedule is not different according to the time of day, but by grade level. My 5-6 classes are on a 5 day schedule and my 7-12 classes are on a 2-day AB schedule.

Agreed! This is definitely needed for all the Art, PE, Music teachers out there! My morning schedule is a 5-day rotation and afternoon is on a 4-day schedule.

We rotate our specials classes each week. I would love to be able to set this up in the template formate and the correct template show up on the correct day (bumped) each week.
