1. Introduction - TimeTable Assistant 'Web' Application
If you want to revert to information about the 'Regular' MS Access version of the Timetable Assistant, Click Here

The 'Web' version of the Timetable Assistant Application is fully-functional but still in development. Feedback is welcome.
Currently exploring the possibility/feasibility/effectiveness of this Web version - to complement (or possibly replace) the MS Access version of the app.
Although this Web version is fully-functional, users should still continue using the MS Access version.
A Web version would have some advantages to the 'Regular' MS Access version of the app, most notably the elimination of the need for having MS Access installed.
Ideally, the purpose of this 'Web' version of the app at this point would be to get a sense of how users like the app, determine if it provides reports that are as good as reports within the current MS Access version of the app and how well it functions with a variety of users online.

2. Development and Functionality - Timetable Assistant 'Web' Application:

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_v18012_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.

The processes involving 'Simulated Loads' are now complete. The user can Upload the ClassLoad.csv file (results of a Simulated Load) and import both the ClassLoad.csv file and the MasterSchedule.csv file. Reports would then show the number of students in each section, based on the Simulated Load - a very powerful function. This is the same as in the MS Access version of the app.

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

The user's MasterSchedule.csv file would have to be Uploaded to my ISP's server. Although this functionality has been created, it is not accessible to users. Nesterenko Software does not wish to take responsibiity for any privacy breach. Sometime in the future, it may be possible to load the application on each School Board's server.

In the meantime, you will be able to Login and use the app - but with the sample MasterSchedule.csv data that has already been uploaded. You will not be able to upload your MasterSchedule.csv data.
