Jointly Taught Activities options

Options determine whether the property values of a jointly taught activity (JTA) are copied from the primary parent activity, or combined from all parent activities.

The following options are available:

Option

Affected property of the jointly taught activity

Description

Name

Name

Primary: The name of the primary activity is used.

All: The names of all parent activities are combined in the name. A specified separator is inserted between the names.

In Enterprise Timetabler, these options have no effect after you manually modify the Activity Name property on the General tab.

Size

Planned size

Primary: The planned size of the primary activity is used.

All: The planned size of each parent activity is summed. The result of that calculation is used.

Location

Location requirement

Primary: The location requirement of the primary activity is copied.

All: The location requirement of each parent activity is used:

  • If the parent activities have only flexible requirements, the jointly taught activity has a flexible requirement. The suitability criteria of every parent activity is copied into the JTA's flexible requirement. For example, if Activity A requires 1 location that provides audio speakers, and Activity B requires 1 lecture hall, then the resulting JTA requires 2 lecture halls that have audio speakers. The number of locations required by each parent is summed.
  • If the parent activities have only preset location requirements, the JTA has a preset requirement for all those locations.
  • If some parent activities have flexible requirements and others have preset requirements, the JTA has a preset requirement for the same locations referenced by its parents' preset requirements .

Staff

Staff requirement

The options for staff requirements have an equivalent effect to the options for location requirements.

Equipment

Equipment requirement

The options for equipment requirements have an equivalent effect to the options for location requirements.

Groups

Group membership

Primary: The JTA is a member of the same groups as the primary activity.

All: The JTA is a member of any group that a parent activity is part of.

None: The JTA is not a member of any group.

Tags

Tag assignment

Primary: The JTA is assigned the same tags as the primary activity.

All: The JTA is assigned any tag that a parent activity is assigned.

None: The JTA is not assigned any tags.
