Creating an activity To create an activity you will need to go into the timetabler menu and select activities from the drop down list.
In this screen you can either create a new activity or duplicate an activity.

Enter the class size. Change the type to teaching unless, you wish to use one of the other fields such as lecture, seminar etc.
Change the module here to match the module code that you are booking the room for.
Change the duration to how long the booking is for. The system works in half hours so 2 is 1 hour. Select the day required, more than one can be selected if required, as long as they are the same time. Select the suggested start time. Then click modify.
