What's new in iDoceo 3.0

These are the main features of iDoceo 3.0 but there is a more recent version of iDoceo available already!

Working modes : Compact and Full-size

iDoceo 3.0 offers two working modes, compact and full-size.
Both modes affect how the timetable,diary and the planner are linked together.

Compact mode uses our previous version's schedule 1-2 system, while full-size offers a new system, with a new planner,calendar and schedule.

Compact mode's schedule is not "calendar" aware, i.e. the diary does not know if you're actually on week 1 or 2 of your schedule. But it is
easier to configure for beginners and many users will feel it is all they need.

Full-size mode is backed by a calendar which will allow you to configure any kind of cycle,day,week combination for your term or given dates.
The schedule in turn will know exactly which classes are scheduled for a given week, its holidays, and the diary will reflect it as well.

Full-size mode requires you to assign a Period to each scheduled item, be it a class or a an location/annotation. Period times can be modified at will. Each row in the planner depicts a period . You can configure up to 12 periods per day.
You should not keep switching from one mode to the other but if you do change your mind, about which one to use, do so at your convenience from the Main screen / Settings / Working mode option.
