How it works

Lukkarikone is actually a view to Haaga-Helia’s reservation system. It is made as a tool for students to generate study-schedules. You can use the machine in two ways: by giving the machine your group code and generate the schedule with that information or alternatively by searching for different study implementations and generate the schedule with that information. You can also use both of these methosds simultaniously. The machine searches all reservations with the given inputs and generates the schedule.

The main view includes

  1. Main menu
  2. Search fields
  3. Study basket (like shopping cart in some web-shops)

Search page (first Tab)

The search page opens by default when you open Lukkarikone (if no default schedule is selected in the Settings page). On this page, the user tells the machine all the criteria on how the schedule will be generated. The criteria can be study implementations or just group identification code - or a combination of those. All the criteria are collected into the study basket and used to generate a schedule that can be accessed from the second Tab (Schedule)

Making the Schedule

There are two ways to generate a schedule. The first way is to enter the group identification code in the “group calendar search” and select it to the study basket or (the second way) by going to “search study implementations” and search & select wanted implementations to basket. Then just go to Schedule tab. Underneath is a step-by-step guide for both ways.

Quick Schedule by Group ID:

1. In the ”Search group calendar” -view, enter your group ID - you can also search by entering only the first three letters. Then click “Search”.

2. The search result lists all groups that match the given criteria AND have at least one reservation in Haaga-Helia’s reservation system.

3. Select the correct group by clicking the icon next to it - the colour of the icon changes when it is selected

4. The selected group should appear now below the study basket.

5. Now you can look at the group’s schedule in the Schedule-tab. It shows all the reservations that are connected to the selected group.

ATTN! If you want to search for virtual courses, intensive courses  or courses that are offered to exchange students (EXCH), use the study implementations search and select Search ‘By group ID’, and enter virtuaali, intensiivi, or EXCH as search word:

 

Creating Schedule with study implementations:

This search differs from the previous one in that in this search the user searches study-implementations (instead of groups) and selects them into the study-basket. The schedule is generated by searching all matching reservations for the selected study-implementations.

The user has to define which study-implementations are used to generate a schedule.

  1. You can search implementations by its name (or part of the name), code, teacher’s name or by your group ID. In addition, you can specify more exactly the date when the implementation is planned to start. Then click “Search”.

2. In the example above, we have used ”search by name” and entered ”mathematics” as search word. Please note that the result list shows only 100 results at a time.

Filtering: You can use the facets on top of search results in order to filter results

Select implementations to the study-basket by clicking the '+' icon next to the implementation name. The other icon means that this implementation has at least one reservation in the reservation system. If this list icon is not visible then the implementation has no reservations and thus no calendar markings for the schedule. Select as many implementation as you like to the study-basket.

You can select all visible results at once by clicking the uppermost icon. You can remove implementations from the study-basket by clicking “X” next to the corresponding implementation in the basket


Note. If you use a partial/incomplete search word like ”at0” the machine lists every instance that starts with at0, for example AT06 and AT07, AT08 etc. You should use as exact a search word as possible like “AT06”. If only one result is found in Group search, the system will automatically select it and goes to Schedule view.

Tip:You can click on any implementation to get more information of that study.

3. After you have selected all necessary implementations to the study-basket you can move to Schedule tab and see the schedule for the selected studies.

Schedule page

There are two Schedule views available - a normal calendar view and a list view. You can choose which view to use.

Schedule view

Schedule view shows the weekly-schedule of the groups/implementations that you have selected as criteria. You can click on any marking (reservation) to show more details of that single reservation. In this view you can also hide single reservations or make them visible again. You can also print the weekly schedule (or browse weeks).



If you click one of the reservations a new pop-up opens showing you more info and enables you to hide a reservation.

List view

In the list view you can see all the future reservations related to the study basket. You can sort reservations based on the search word and hide reservations. Furthermore you can save the list in i.e. Excel format or copy the list to clipboard.

Settings

To access Settings menu you have to first log in with your own Haaga-Helia username/password.

Saving a Schedule

To save the Schedule first sign in, then compose the Schedule you wish (on the search page). Then go to Settings page and give the schedule a name and then click "Save". You can also set it as the default Schedule which will open automatically when you sign in the next time. You can also copy a direct URL link to the saved schedule (star-icon beside the saved schedule)
