You can delete a variant and add the weeks that form its teaching week pattern to a sibling variant. For example, a variation in resource allocation for specific weeks might no longer be necessary.
To merge variants, follow these steps:
- In the Activities pane, click the variant activity that you want to merge into a sibling (see 1, above). You can select multiple variants of the same parent.
- In the Edit menu, click Merge Variant Weeks (2). The Delete Variant Activities window (3) opens. Its upper table lists the variant activity that you selected. Its lower table (4) lists its sibling variant activities.
Note: If you click Delete Activity in the Edit menu, the Delete Variant Activities window opens. The Delete these activities completely option is selected by default.
- Click one of the following options. Then, if you clicked Delete this activity and add the weeks to the selected activity, click an activity in the lower table.
Delete this activity completely
The variant is deleted. The weeks that form its teaching week pattern are not added to a sibling variant. So, the activity is no longer taught during those weeks.
Delete this activity and add the weeks to the selected activity
The variant is deleted. The weeks that form its teaching week pattern are added to the sibling activity that you selected in the lower table.
- Click OK (5).
