Overall excellent solution. Some improvement areas. For example, being able to have mixed duration slots, 15 mins and 45 mins instead of just 30 mins and 1 hour. Some technical glitches here and there. When I replicate classes and update group names, they don't change across the system. Rules sometimes need to be created for each lesson - should be some way to simplify.

Shamail Siddiqi found Skolaris:
  • Slightly saves school money

  • Moderately improves teacher wellbeing
    Provides clear view on teacher utilization to be able to make adjustment as needed.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    We have a unique offering and timetabling is very complex. We were doing it manually after being frustrated by different timetabling software. Skolaris helped solve the problem. It took a few weeks to setup for our needs but once done, it helped streamline our timetabling process. The prompt customer support provided by Hugh every time we ran into an issue was invaluable. Don't know any other company that would provide this kind of support.

Up to now it seems to be an intersting way to create timetables. The interfaces to other applications (import/export options) do not seem as flexible as I need them to be. For example, I have to manually export qualifications and employment levels of teachers, subgroups of students from year groups and corresponding elective subject groups from the corresponding applications (databases such as Escola, SL-Planer) and then migrate them one by one into Skolaris. Timetables created in Skolaris are not exported in such a way that they can be processed in the aforementioned applications.

The initial support in order to understand how to use the system was very good. Following that the technical support and speed of response to queries has been excellent. When asked, advise was given on how to optimise the settings in order to create a better timetable.

Rachael Irgi found Skolaris:
  • Significantly saves school money
    Able to look at part time staffing and enable timetables to be created that ensure people are contracted for the necessary times.
  • Slightly improves teacher wellbeing
    N/A
  • Moderately improves school processes
    As timetabling starts the needs of the groups or new ideas of how to timetable emerge, this is easy to change and then recreated a timetable. Its also easy to make changes in order to look at what the impact of the school day would be.

Skolaris is a web tool for creating and optimizing timetables for primary and secondary schools. It works online, so there is no need to install it and it is available anywhere, anytime. It can create a new schedule from scratch, but also improve (optimize) an existing schedule. I have to say that my experience with Skolaris is only positive. The main problem with creating timetable software is the fact that each school has its own specific requirements, which are not at all easy to combine into one universal tool. However, Skolaris has no trouble with anything. It is fully adjustable and allows the incorporation of almost any special condition. A big advantage is that the schedule conditions are entered with weights that allow really consistent optimization and the creation of a precisely tailored schedule. In addition, the scales can be adjusted at any time, which brings many other advantages. Almost no sub-parameter of the timetable is fixed in Skolaris, the program is completely variable and adapts to the user and his requirements. The program works very quickly, a usable schedule after a thorough check of the weighted conditions is available in a matter of minutes. It is therefore fully functional and did not show any errors or partial deficiencies during the entire time of working with it. The uniqueness of the program compared to known products also lies in the fact that the quality of the created schedule is measurable. Each condition is evaluated on a point scale according to its weight, so the user can easily and immediately find out whether the schedule he receives is of sufficient quality or requires further optimization. The program is very user-friendly, the control is intuitive, all control elements are accompanied by help. The graphical interface is clear, I have no complaints about it. Created schedules are exported in pdf format. The advantage is also the immediate publication of the schedule on the website, for example for the teachers of the given school. The program enables multi-user access with natural data protection and also has an integrated possibility of creating substitutions. In conclusion, I want to mention perhaps the most important attribute of the new scheduling program. This is the user support of its creators. When working with such a comprehensive and complex system for the first time, the possibility of consulting with someone competent is very important, I dare say that it would be almost impossible without it (through quality help). This is due to the aforementioned variety of requirements of each user. One of the authors of the program, Mr. Martin Klemsa, was a great advisor and helper during the entire creation of this year's schedule. His willingness and professionalism in daily e-mail communication further enhanced my maximum satisfaction with the Skolaris program. I definitely recommend the Skolaris schedule creation and optimization program to all other interested parties.

Vladimír Slezák found Skolaris:
  • Significantly saves school money
    Skolaris is priced favorably compared to competing products.
  • Moderately improves teacher wellbeing
    Skolaris is very good at incorporating teachers' requirements into class schedules, which can be very diverse.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    The timetable is a key thing for the operation and functioning of any school. Its quality affects the daily life of students and teachers throughout the school year.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    The quality of the schedule affects the daily life of students and teachers throughout the school year. The class schedule is directly related to how people feel at school.

I recommend it to all people who do not know how to deal with the schedule - especially beginners in this work. Overall, I rate Skolaris very positively. He helped me in the beginning with my schedule, I got a lot of clarity from him and this school year is running pretty smoothly. As I planned it, it is. Thank you also for the positive attitude towards the client. There are some areas that still need a little improvement - printing options, save, save, save.

Mgr. Michal Škamrada found Skolaris:
  • Moderately saves school money
  • Moderately improves teacher wellbeing
    Not so many windows in the schedule.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Better layout of the schedule, solving some specific requests quickly and easily
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Students are not overworked and the schedule has a positive impact on their mood and behavior.

I would very much be happy to recommend this software to other people who is responsible for timetabling. There is somewhat of a steep learning curve if the individual has only been used to doing timetable on paper and may not be technologically savy enough. This I believe is the slight barrier any timetabling software will have on traditional timetablers.

Rico found Skolaris:
  • Slightly saves school money
    In terms of literal financial sense on a budget, perhaps it is more neutral for me. But in terms of the time it has saved me in creating timetables while taking into account different preferences of teachers, classes, full-time/ part-time staff, etc., it has been phenomenal. So I see it as it does save time which in turn can save money in other areas.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Being able to put teacher preferences into their timetable in terms of when to have certain classes, etc., has had a positive impact on teacher workload. No timetable is every perfect, but Skolaris gets me closer there.
