Switching the order of periods for a Day B in an A-B cycle.

Switching the order of periods for a Day B in an A-B cycle.

I am scheduling for 2021-2022.  My school has a two-day cycle, Day A and Day B.  On Day B, periods 1 and 2 flip and periods 4 and 5 flip.  How do I configure this in PowerScheduler or where can I find instructions?  Thanks for any and all help.

That'll be dependent on your bell schedule.  You'll still assign the sections to the periods, but the bell schedule will determine what times the periods occur, thus creating "the flip."

 

So you'd still attach Periods 1-5 to both A and B days.  But then when you go to build your bell schedule, create the A Day and B Day, then set the periods' times to what they're going to be (with P2 occurring before P1).

 

Example:

2021-04-28 12_28_48-T2 - 20.11.1 - 4_13_21_ Bell Schedule_.png
