I am putting together a complex timetable. Its for a year of a postgraduate course in Sound Art, with two cohorts, 2o tutors, various room bookings, various different kinds of payment to tutors, and various other variables.
Because of the new social distancing requirements there are many complexities to do with spaces and timing, and things keep changing (blended learning with synchronous and asynchronous teaching).
I used to do this in filemaker, but just cant visualise what is happening any more!
My hope is to make a grid in TB and have each class (a prototype with all the needed attributes) represented, allowing me to move them around easily.
The different summaries - by tutor, cost, space, time, mode of delivery etc etc can, I hope, be easily summarised (using agents).
I also want to export this to a spreadsheet so I can share it and format it for other people, and have seen the helpful topic ’ What is the simplest way to get Tbox values to a spreadsheet?’. This seems to work on my test version (but not as easily as in the final examples from the thread - I cant copy and paster from the attribute browser, it won’t let me. Need to go through intermediate steps.)
So my question is this -
- Is there any advice anyone can give me about how to make a timetable in TB, to avoid nightmares or too much timewasting going in the wrong direction.
- The attribute browser export for a spreadsheet is fabulous, Im very glad it works. But is there a reason why I cant copy directly from it?
Thankyou kind people on the forum
