Teacher Absence/OnCall Assistant - Various Menus, Forms and Reports: OnCall Assistant

1. Introduction - Teacher Absence/OnCall Assistant Application

This app was developed at the request of Vice-Principals who were struggling with the daily chore of handling teacher absences and assigning and tracking OnCalls.

Initial setup takes only a couple of minutes. No data-entry required - the Teacher Assignments are imported from the Master Schedule Report with a couple of mouse clicks - if you are familiar with the Nesterenko Software Timetable Assistant Application, the import step is exactly the same in the OnCall Assistant app as it is in the Timetable Assistant app.
