Engage Timetable on the Parent PortalEngage Timetable is a powerful and comprehensive curriculum planning and staff substitution tool, managing down to individual student, staff member and room.

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.

Integration with other Timetable softwares

The full power of Engage and the Engage Timetable module remain intact when using a third party Timetable software.

Keith Johnson’s TimeTabler (see Partners) has a full integration with Engage, including its extensive Options capability. Later in 2018, a full integration with Untis (see Partners) will be available.
