Master Schedule, Split Term field needs to be locked down.
Master Schedule, Split Term (MST.DY) field needs to give a warning when changes are made and SEC/CAR records exist. Or the field should be read only like PD, BL, SM, TN and CN.1 vote

Have scheduling groups (not the way the currently work where you have to tag EVERY student with a scheduling group) but identify a group of students that need to go into a specific section and give those students priority into that matched section and allow other students to randomly fill the remaining seats. Currently we have to manually put those students in a section and manually lock them before running the scheduler.3 votes
When running with Keep/Skip, student scheduling exclusions are not honored for existing students in class.
When running the scheduler with “keep/skip” (to balance genders for example) the scheduler does not appear to honor scheduling exclusions unless the students are scheduled at the same time.1 vote

COVID - SMS - Planning Options
Our schools are requesting different options for SMS Scheduling that can be loaded/planned on the fly.
Since we do not know what the future will bring, our schools need to plan in SMS for
Plan A ( on-campus 'traditional' scheduling )
Plan B ( on-campus limited classroom attendance 'social distancing )
Plan C ( Distance-Learning remote-campus scheduling )
Currently they are creating a schedule, saving it, wiping SMS and re-building or the different options.
If there is a way to make this easier, it would be greatly appreciated.1 vote
Allow "Next School" to determine course request offerings.
Currently, course request offerings are determined by the student's current school. This does not work well in cases where the students are moving across a school grade level boundary. In casess where there is not a 1:1 relationship between feeder schools and next schools, students have to use generic course requests, if they can use them at all.1 vote
Make hand scheduling easier and quicker
In CS you could quickly click on the courses in the alternate tab and view what period it is available. Now having to go to the SMS Board and filtering it either by course ID or period is so time consuming. From a schedulers point of view .net is far less efficient than it was in CS. There are several features but this one is grueling!1 vote
Improve the View of Classes in Edit mode
It is so hard to see the results of the changes you have made unless you click Save. I find it really hard to read. I add a class from View MST and it puts it at the bottom of the list rather than in period order. t Then to compound the problem, on the SSS side, you can’t even click the sections. You are forced to use View MST -which actually is OK with me. I love View MST, but the fact that the two systems are now so different is confusing.1 vote

Scheduling Master Schedule Board report: add visual cue for Class Linked sections
On the Flex SMS Board, a visual cue is displayed to highlight sections with Class Links. It would be nice if Class Linked sections were identified in some way on the Scheduling Master Schedule Board report. At minimum, a cell border. If the Class Link number could fit, that would be great. Also, it would be great if this worked for both Flex and non-Flex schools.0 votes
Scheduling Master Schedule and Master Schedule reports: add Class Link column
Add the Class Link (SMS.CL/MST.CL) to these reports, next to the other Complex Scheduling tags (Sch Grp, Crs Grp, TM Nm, Sm Grp).0 votes
Scheduling Master Schedule/Master Schedule section numbers: add control and/or customization
Customers often want to use the section number to hold and provide information (period, room number, grade level, etc.,) instead of using the unique number assigned by Aeries.
If it is feasible in NextGen, it would be nice if the section number could have options for customization, so that if the customer wanted a system, it would be easier to impose and serve their needs.0 votes
Scheduling Exclusions: add (optional) "For this specific Course or Courses" to student exclusion
For Scheduling Exclusions by student, if a student exclusion could be limited to particular Courses, that might actually make scheduling easier. The example provided was for a PE Course. PE would prefer an exclusion, but other courses might not need the exclusion to be honored.0 votes
Course Requests Entry on Student/Parent Portal: add options to modify/limit entries
When Course Requests are collected on paper, instructions are provided to the students/parents. These instructions can be more restrictive and granular than what the Student/Parent Portal currently allows for. For example, it would be nice if an "Entry Options" was provided so that the school could set a max number of Primary Requests per individual Subject Area/Department Code. Or if the Course Requests Entry could allow different restrictions on Course Requests based on different Grade Levels and/or other student characteristics. And if specific Subject Areas/Course Requests or all could be available/not available for the Portal Groups to edit (some Course Requests could be edited and some could not, to keep the Portal Groups from altering CRs already entered by the counselors). Basically, it would be great if the Course Requests Entry on the Portal allowed exactly what the school wanted to allow -- which is variable by school.

Flex/Section Staff Conversion: copy Teachers (TCH) data to Staff Scheduling Info (SSI)
When a school converts from traditional scheduling to Flex scheduling and/or if they start to use Section Staff, can certain fields from TCH (for example, TCH.RM, TCH.MS, TCH.LO, TCH.HI) be copied to the SSI fields for the appropriate school and staff record? Those would be SSI.RM, SSI.MX, SSI.LO, and SSI.HI in my example.
The reason I'm asking is to save customers some data entry work, especially if they have to do this manually.0 votes
