Among the course data settings for sections, there is special circumstance data to edit as part of the course section. This data is not used day to day but needed when doing state reporting and building your master schedule. This unique information is spread across three tabs. Each tab is detailed below with instructions on how to edit the information.

In jmc Office, get started by going to Schedules > Course > Edit Course Data and click the tab you need.

Constraints tab

The master schedule builder needs to know what terms and periods a section can be offered before building the section into a master schedule. Let's look at how to set the available terms and periods, or constraints, for the section.

Step One: Click "Edit" next to the desired course section to begin editing the constraints for a section.

Step Two: Place a checkmark under the "Terms" column for each term available when scheduling the section.

Step Three: Place a checkmark under the "Periods" column for each period available when scheduling the section.

Step Four: Enter a course capacity limit in the "Capacity" field if you wish to limit the number of students allowed to be scheduled into the section.

Step Five: Click the "Update" link to save the constraint modifications for the section.
