TimeTable Assistant 'Web' Application
Switch to 'Regular' MS Access version of the Timetable Assistant app.
A 'Web' version of the Timetable Assistant Application is under development. A 'Web' version would be preferred to the 'Regular' MS Access version of the app, as long as it provided all of the existing functionality within the 'Regular' MS Access version of the Timetable Assistant Application.

Timetable Assistant Web Application - Functionality and Information:

The functionality of the Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application is very similar to the 'Regular' MS Access version of the TimeTable Assistant Application.

Both applications require the user to generate a MasterSchedule.csv file from the Master Schedule by Course Section Report.

The 'Regular' version of the app then asks the user to 'Import' the MasterSchedule.csv file into the app.

The Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application asks the user to 'Upload' the MasterSchedule.csv file to the server, then 'Import' the MasterSchedule.csv file into the app.

After Uploading/Importing the MasterSchedule.csv file, the functionality is virtually the same for both versions of the application.

To launch the 'Regular' version of the app, the user typically browses to the appopriate computer folder and double-clicks on Timetable_v160123_SDHS.mde (or similar). This would launch MS Access and open the application.

To use the Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application, the user would visit www.nesterenkosoftware.com/TimetableAssistantWeb and then Sign In (UserID and Password required). Guest accounts are provided.

As of Nov 2017, the Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application is working very well and most functions are complete. However the 'Import Class Load' functions which are a part of the 'Regular' version of the app are not yet included in the Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application. These functions allow the user during the Timetabling process to Import the 'Class Load' data from a 'Simulated Load' and view the results within the many Master Schedule Reports etc. This is an extremely valuable function within the 'Regular' Timetable Assistant Application when timetabling. This functionality is being developed.

The notable difference with the Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application is that the user must Upload the MasterSchedule.csv file to the server.

At this point the MasterSchedule.csv file must be Uploaded to my ISP's server. The application requires a UserID and Password so that access to the website is controlled. Unlike the 'Regular' MS Access version of the app, this 'Web' version of the application raises the issue of data privacy and security. Although the MasterSchedule.csv file does not contain any student names, it does contain Teacher Names and other information that schools would like to keep private. Each user's data is private and separate from any other user, controlled by the UserID and Password. I do not wish to take responsibiity for any privacy breach. The user must determine if they wish to use the application with the current security. In future, it may be possible to load the application on each School Board's server - so that the MasterSchedule.csv data remains within the School Board computer network.

I use the most popular Web provider, so it is extremely dependable, but this is not something that I want to be concerned with or responsible for.

If you would like to use the Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application, email me PeteSelf@NesterenkoSoftware.com and I would be happy to provide you with a UserID and Password. You would then be able to use the application and determine for yourself if it may meet your needs.
You would be able to Upload your MasterSchedule.csv file or I can send you a typical sample MasterSchedule.csv file that you could Upload.
