Adding Timetable Exceptions
This guide takes you through the steps to make bookings possible in a timeslot on a room/resource that normally contains a timetabled class. This might be, for example, to allow you to free up a room/resource if you have a class that is away for the day.
Note: If you sync your data from a school management system we would recommend that, where possible, you free up a room by entering a Suspension Rule or Cover/Closure, rather than entering a timetable exception.
