When to Commit the Master Schedule for Visual Scheduler

When your master schedule is as good as it can possibly be and school is no longer in session, commit the master schedule. When you commit a master schedule, it replaces any existing master schedule for that school year.

To ensure that attendance is set up properly, your "live side" school year should be created before committing your schedule in PowerScheduler. Also, when committing a master schedule, course information, including credit hours, is retrieved from the district level in PowerSchool.

If you use PowerScheduler to create a master schedule, you should commit your master schedule before running the End-of-Year Process. The End-of-Year process modifies each student's Next School Indicator and Next Year Grade. If PowerScheduler is used after running the End-of-Year process, it is possible that students will be scheduled for the wrong school or grade level.

Commit the Master Schedule

  1. Navigate to the PowerScheduler page. 
  2. Under Processing, choose Commit
  3. Select which schedules to copy:
    • Sections Only: Select this option to commit only sections.
    • Student Schedules Only: Select this option to commit only student schedules.
    • Sections & Student Schedules: Select this option to commit both sections and student schedules.
  4. Click Submit
  5. If you are certain that you want to commit, click Submit
