luTimetableGroup lookup table


The luTimetableGroup lookup table is used to define the number of days and periods for each timetable group. This can also be maintained using the Timetable Group tab of Timetable Maintenance. See Timetable Maintenance - Timetable Group tab in the Curriculum manual.






Unique code to identify the timetable group.


Description of the timetable group.


Number of days in the timetable cycle.

For example, your organisation might have a:

  • weekly rotating timetable of 5 cycle days (Monday to Friday)
  • fortnightly rotating timetable of 10 cycle days (Monday to Friday, Monday to Friday)
  • rotating timetable of 7 cycle days (Monday to Tuesday the following week, restarting on Wednesday to Thursday the following week).


Number of teaching days in the week.

For example, a timetable that teaches Monday to Friday has 5 teaching days.

Note: This field counts the number of days in a week, not a cycle. For example, fortnightly timetables usually have 5 days in a week. However, organisations that teach classes on Saturdays would have 6 days in a week, and organisations that do not teach classes on Fridays would have 4.


Number of periods in a day. For example, 6 periods.


Maximum number of lessons that staff can be allocated per timetable cycle. For example, 25.

Used for determining staff substitution in SynWeb.


Select to display the time each period finishes in the timetable grids.


Select to enable the creation of absence events when marking nonattendances on the Attendance window. See Attendance window in the Attendance and absence events manual.

Clear to disable the creation of absence events when marking nonattendances for certain classes. For example, when marking non-compulsory sporting events there is no need for an absence event to be created that requires follow up.


Select if the timetable group is used by your organisation.
