Move Days within the Schedule

BYU Learning Suite allows instructors to arrange the Schedule according to their needs. Instructors can move items using three different methods: moving days, shifting days, and swapping days.

 

Step One:

Enter your Learning Suite course and click on Schedule.

Moving Days

Note: Moving days will allow you to move items from one day to another day regardless if it is an instructional or non-instructional day. For example, if you have items on your schedule associated with a non-instructional day you will be able to move them to any other day irrespective of type.

 

Step Two:

Click on the day you wish to move. The row that contains the date will be highlighted in yellow.

Option Effect
Add to existing items on the schedule This will add the schedule items you are moving to the items that already exist under the new day.
Replace existing items on the selected date

This will replace the existing schedule items on the selected date with the schedule items you are moving.

Note: Replacing items will delete the assignment, or announcement in Schedule as well as any other components in Learning Suite. For more information on recovering deleted material, please visit Restore Deleted Assignments or Restore Deleted Exams.

Shift instruction days affected by the move automatically

If you move items from one instructional day to another, it will bump the affected instructional day items backwards or forwards depending on the direction of the shift you make, to keep the same spacing between the items.

Note: This option will only be available to select if you are moving items from one instructional day to another instructional day.

 

 

Shifting Days

Note: Shifting days will only work if you are shifting items from one instructional day to another instructional day. For example, if your class is held on MW, you will only be able to shift items from a MW to a MW. The only exception occurs when the instructional day is adjusted to accommodate a holiday.

 

Step Two:

Click on the day you wish to shift. The row that contains the date will be highlighted in yellow.

Step Four:

Step Five:

A dialog window will appear. Use the Calendar text box [1] to select the day you want to shift the schedule items to. Click Shift Days to move the schedule items.

Note: The spacing between the items will remain the same. For example, if you are shifting items to an instructional day that already has items associated with it, those items will also shift accordingly, to keep the same amount of instructional days between the items. However, items will not be shifted past the last instructional day of the semester.

Swapping Days

Note: Swapping days will only work if you are swapping items from one instructional day to another instructional day. For example, if your class is held on MW, you will only be able to swap items from a MW to a MW. The only exception occurs when the instructional day was adjusted to accommodate a holiday.

 

Step Two:

Click on the day you wish to swap. The row that contains the date will be highlighted in yellow.
