Copy Schedule when Activating a New Term

Academic terms in QuickSchools are self-contained or designed to work independently of one another. When you edit/create subjects and enrollments in one semester, it does not affect other semesters within your account. 

We understand that recreating all school data from scratch whenever a new term is created would be troublesome. So when you do activate a new academic term, you have the option of copying data to the new academic term, based on the previously active academic term. Aside from subjects and enrollments, a new copy of the schedule can also be created upon the activation of the new term. This simplifies the process of schools that have the same schedule throughout the year, and provides a starting point if you need to make scheduling changes that do not affect previous terms.

Here’s how to copy the schedule to the next term.

  • Make sure that the source schedule is active.
  • Activate the new term via New Semester Setup > View All Semesters
  • Select ‘Yes, copy info’. The system will copy the setup of the previous term along with the schedule.

As a Super User you will have access to the list of all users on your school – Teachers, Parents and Students. By clicking the ‘Login’ button beside the user’s name, the Super User will be able to log into the account, for purposes of debugging and verifying user access and privileges.

Online Form: Printing of Custom Forms

Typically, if you need to print submitted forms in the Online Form app, we recommend setting up your form packets using PDF files. This is because with PDF files, you have full control on how the document should look like. As a result, if you were using our Custom Fields function to create forms, you’d be stuck with using “Print Screen” to print completed forms. However, with the new Sprint D8 release, Quickschools now has a new print function for online forms with custom fields. You will see the ‘Print’ button by simply opening the submitted forms in View Submissions page.

By clicking Print, the browser print window will appear.Read More »
