Many thanks for your attention and support!
I will try to describe what my needs are briefly, ok!
As I said, I work as a private English teacher and I teach mainly one-to-one classes in companies. I also manage a small team of teachers who work for me in the same way.
I am trying to develop an app to: a) take students attendance b) keep track of their learning goals and program details c) register class details and homework assignments.
So far, I am happy with all features functioning but a), because I still couldn’t find a way to pre-determine all future classes for each student according to their contract schedule. Currently, we can register classes on any date, regardless of the schedule of the student (simply by using the date field).
I work with semester-based contracts with the students, and I would like to be able to pre-determine all the dates on which classes can be registered for the whole duration of each student’s contract.
I have already found a way to create a string of dates automatically (e.g. “1: terça-feira, 4 Setembro, 2018; 2 : segunda-feira, 10 Setembro, 2018…” etc), which can be separated either by “,” or “;”. I created a column named “CLASS” in the a tab called “STUDENTS”, where I register all students and their details and was trying to somehow pull that string as a list on the “REGISTER” view.
I haven’t managed to do that yet. I know how to create lists from columns, but not from a string in a single cell. That’s essential to my project, because each student will have a different string of dates.
I hope I was clear enough! Many thanks again for your help!
