TwineSIS checks for conflicts when you enroll a student into a class.
The possible conflicts are:
There is already a course scheduled in that period.
This student is already scheduled into this course.
The second conflict check is designed to prevent concurrently scheduling a student for the same course. (For example, two different classes of AP Calculus). However, for some schools' specific course setup, this functionality is required.
This article explains how to enroll a student in more than one instance of the same course, using just a few extra steps.
- Enroll the student into the first class.
- Click on the Enrolled date to edit.
- Enter a new Enrolled date that is at least one day prior to the desired enrollment date, and click Save.
- Enter a Dropped date equal to the date you used for the new Enrolled date, and click Save.
If you receive this warning, click Cancel and review your dates.
Your Dropped date needs to be equal to or later than the Enrolled date to inactivate the course without deleting it.
- Click Include Inactive Courses to verify the first course is now inactive.
- With the first course in the inactive status, click Add Course and add the second course.
- After adding the second course, click Include Inactive Courses to display both courses.
- Reactivate the first course:
- Set the Enrolled date to the desired enrollment date.
- Set the Dropped date fields to N/A.
- Click Save.
- Uncheck the Include Inactive Courses box, check all Enrolled dates are set to the desired date, and that all the Dropped dates are set to N/A.
Note: The course names appear in red to indicate a conflict. In this case, the conflict is that the student is enrolled in the same course twice. Therefore, the red text is a positive indicator that we have properly enrolled the student in both courses.
