Temporary and future timetables – Time Overlays

A major capability within Engage is to prepare for future timetable changes by having pre-computed timetables automatically becoming live at future dates, regardless of whether Engage Timetable or a third party timetable software has been used. This includes the ability to day shift.

The brain-child of our CTO, Time Overlays was seeded as a Share Ideas from one of our schools, voted by many, and in use by even more.

Integration with other Timetable softwares

Engage is fully aware that school timetablers prefer to use the product with which they are already familiar. Hence, through the Enage Integration API, Engage fully integrates with many of the key Timetable products, retaining the full power of Engage whilst retaining all the beneifts of the Engage Timetable module.

For example, Engage integrates with TimeTabler, Untis, TimetablingSolutions, and in July/August 2019, ASC – see the list under Integration Partners.
