  1. Alt. Ed Course Requests for Next Year Include Actual Course

    When scheduling for next year we add the place holder courses like stated in the alt ed scheduling guides but we can't add the actual courses as well. We have to wait until the school year begins and the classes move over to the "Classes" page.

    I would like to add the actual course ahead of time and be able to mass add ex. all 11th graders in English 11

    More info: Our school is online only and uses Edgenuity.

  2. Automate the Waitlist Feature

    It would be great to have a way to automatically add all rejected students from the SMS process to a waitlist for a course at a given point in our process in scheduling.

  3. Create better logic for scheduling students with empty periods

    Some of our students (especially seniors) are not taking a full load of classes. We have used placeholder courses (Unscheduled) as they must have a class in each period - however in the SMS board and scheduling process - those courses are being seen as any other course and getting placed in the middle of the day.

    I'd like to see a placeholder that the Avoid Gaps in Schedule box will recognize and follow and be able to have a better logic system in terms of only allowing those at the start or end of their regularly scheduled courses.

  4. Scheduling Master/Master Schedule add customizable permission sets for different Staff Roles

    On the Scheduling Master and Master Schedule page, when a Section Staff is added and assigned as Primary Teacher, the permissions (Attendance Prm, Gradebook Prm, etc.) are automatically added (but can be changed).

    If a Section Staff is added who is not the Primary Teacher, can a customizable set of Permissions be added based on the Staff Role (SMS.SR/MST.SR)? Note that this could only work currently with the existing hard-coded Staff Roles, but that it would be nice if Staff Roles can ever be added, that the customer could input: "if this Staff Role, then these permissions."

    Here is the…

  5. When copying students from one class section to another, need a way to also copy the wait list to the new section as well

    We sometimes have to create a new section in the master schedule and move students into it. Currently we mostly do this for teacher changes, or sometimes the addition of another section as well. We would like the option to copy over the wait list students as well. It appears the only way to do this currently is to add them one by one to the new section.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  9. Mass Change or Add Crs Requests: add Course Request Section Packets

    On the Mass Change or Add Crs Requests page, could the ability to mass add Course Request Section Packets (so the Course Request plus a specific Section) be added? In a perfect world, it would also ask if the user wanted to duplicate existing Course Requests or add a new one. And handle existing Course Requests with Sections. Maybe a popup to let the user know which student has the same Course Request and or Section already.

    This issue came up during a training. The customer asked about ways to mass assign sets of sections to a group of students.

  10. 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.

  11. Remove Classes from past terms from the EDIT screen on the Classes page

    Classes that have ended, have had grades submitted, and their term is no longer current should not be displayed when editing a student's current or future classes in the Classes page. This clutters the Edit screen with classes that shouldn't be edited because their CAR records will be affected.

  13. Option to hide inactive sections in Staff / Master Schedule with Flex

    When using flex and looking up a teachers sections, there is no distinction between inactive and active sections. Maybe either make them the inactive sections red or show the status on the right and then let us click a box to hide the inactive. (right now status shows nothing even if inactive)

  14. Teacher Last Name and Entire First Name

    When using Flex Scheduling or Staff Sections, Aeries pulls 1st initial/last name from staff by default. Please pull the entire whole first name. We have teachers with the same last name and the same first initial. This will lessen confusion for students when viewing schedules/class summary

  15. Lock row and column headers on Classes page

    When I am using the Classes page to schedule a student's classes, I usually first add a Course Request packet that has all the courses for that student's grade so that I can select which sections s/he should be in. But we have 10 Flex Periods across our various school days, and when I scroll right to view the latter flex periods, I can no longer see the row headers that tell me the name of the course. And if I scroll down to look at latter rows of courses in the list, I can no longer see the column…

  20. Change Classes Trash Can button to a Drop button when making Schedule changes

    The trash can button freaks a lot of end users out because they think they are permanently deleting the students class from Aeries. We have to reassure a lot of users that the information is still stored in Course Attendance and that button only "deletes" the class from the Classes page. It would be a lot more clear if the Trash Can was replaced with either a Drop link or a Drop button. Main goal is to change it to Drop rather than Delete. I believe this is how it was in the old classes?
