Edit an activity

You can edit the property values of activities. For example, you can edit the activity duration, and select which zone the activity takes place in. You can also edit the activity's availability pattern, which specifies which weeks, days, and times that the activity can be scheduled for.

To edit property values, follow these steps:

  1. In the table in the Activities pane, right-click on the activity that you want to edit, then click Edit Activity (see 1, above).

    Note: The activity that you edit might be a variant activity. For example, Data Analysis/L/01 <01-04> is a variant activity that represents the first four weeks of the Data Analysis lecture. This variant might exist because the main lecturer is unavailable for the first four weeks of the academic year (so an alternative lecturer has been allocated for those weeks).


    Any changes that you make to a variant activity (by following the steps below) will, in effect, describe a change only to some weeks of the overall activity. For example, if you edit the description of Data Analysis/L/01 <01-04>, only that variant's description will change; the other variants of the Data Analysis lecture, and the (hidden) parent Data Analysis activity will be unaffected.


    To modify all variants of an activity, and the parent activity too, all together in one action, use the Edit all variants feature.

  2. In the Activity Editor window (2), edit property values. For more information about activity properties, see Activity properties.
  3. To save your changes, click OK (3). The Activity Editor window closes.
  4. To set the suggested days and suggested time properties of an activity, follow these steps:
