We understand that things tend to change, so after you've set up your semester, you'll still be able to go back and change the title and the end date. A common reason for this need are unexpected off-days or cancelled exams that extend your semester.
In this article we'll cover how to edit semester end dates, the name of your semester & the teaching days.
Select the Menu button in the top left-hand corner of the page.
Select Semesters in the Navigation Menu.
Hover over the semester you wish to edit and click on the pencil icon to edit.
Note: The semester looks like this when you hover over it.
Make the edits you'd like to complete. You can edit your semester name by clicking inside the text box.
You may also edit the End Date, which can be extended or shortened. Keep in mind that if you have lessons typed for the dates you remove from a semester, you will not be able to view them in your Day, Week or Month view on Planboard. You also cannot extend your semester dates to overlap an existing semester.
Note: In order to change the Start Date of your semester, feel free to contact Support via Chat or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to provide:
- Your Chalk.com account's email address
- Name of the semester you'd like changed
- The date you'd like it changed to
There is a checkbox for each day of the week that you teach - feel free to adjust this as necessary if your schedule changes over the course of the semester!
You can also set Off-Days from here using the Add Holidays and Add Off-Day options. Learn more about that here
