The course input field only allows for the use of the course acronyms and the course number.
The course acronym is not case sensitive, BIOL is the same as Biol and bioL.
For example, Calcule 1's acronym is MATH and the course number is 425.
In the course input box you can enter MATH 425 or MATH425.
If a desired couse is honors, then the letter 'H' is attached to the course number. To illustrate, MATH 425 will be MATH 425H and PHYS 407 will be PHYS 407H. Physics I with no labs is PHYS 407NL. The hybrid course, one that meets online and in person, ADMIN 400 should be entered as ADMN 400HY.
The section selector option allows for manually enabling or disabling section selection. By default, all sections are selected (in light blue). Sections can be deselected by clicking anywhere on the line.
Course can be deleted with X button on their left and new courses can be added with the Add Course button below them.
The 'Add a Discovery Type' button allows you to put a random discovery of a specified type in your schedules! For each scheduler in your results, a random course in the selected discovery type will be added. If 'Humanities' is selected, then the first schedule could inlcude Propaganda and Persuasion, CMN 456, and the second schedule could include Introduction to Philosophy, PHIL 401.
The 'Add Break' button adds a break in your schedule. You can then name it, select the start and end time, and select the days in which it applies. This is useful for blocking off time for work or other extracurricular activities.
The 'Advanced Features' are not aimed for the average student, and have been mainly built by requests from faculty.
Their functionality can be complicated / counter-intuitive.
1. 'Allowing Restrictions': by default, courses aren't filtered by anything other than previous filters on the page. By clicking on this button, you will force 'Limit Restrictions', which limits the sections of the courses to only the ones that have the LEAST amount of restrictions. This is useful is an engineering major wants to take business clases.
2. 'Disallowing Conflicts': by default, courses and events are NOT allowed to conflict. This means that when schedules conflict, they will not be displayed in the solutions page. Toggling this feature displayes 'Allowing Conflicts', which allows for courses / events to conflict, and indirectly this places each possible section of a course on a seperate schedule for better viewing.
3. 'Multiple Calendars': by default, potential schedules are displayed in a 'list' fashion. Toggling this feature causes a 'Unified Calendar' of all the potential sections and courses. These will be displayed together! We believe that this feature will be extremely useful for faculty because they can identify when ALL students following a certain course schedule will certainly have an empty slot in their week.
