Bumping Plans

Sometimes you need to move a single period or an entire day forward, pushing all future plans forward as well.  We call this "Bumping". 

What Gets Bumped

When you bump a day, only certain types of plans get moved.  One time plans and rotations will be moved, but daily or weekly plans will not.  Schools that operate on a weekly schedule may have a class that meets every Tuesday (ex. a special such as Art or Music), that generally wouldn't be bumped to the next day. 

However if you school uses a rotation then those classes would be bumped for off days and meet the following day.

Bump Entire Day

When you are on the weekly view, you'll see a cog icon next to each of the day names.  You can click on that icon to bring up a menu of options for that day.

Clicking "Bump" will immediately move all the plans for that day forward, as well as pushing any future plans forward a day.

Bump Single Period

You can bump just a single period.  Click and drag the period to the next day (as you would if you were moving and copying your plans).  In the menu that appears, there is an option to bump instead of replace the current plan.

Here is a short video showing the process.

Off Days With Bumping

If there is an unexpected day you need to bump (such as a Snow Day), you can mark that and bump at the same time.  Click on the cog icon and select "Off Day".  You can enter a reason for the Off Day, such as Snow Day, and also select the box for bumping.

Reverse Bumping

There may also be times when you want to bump your plans backwards.  You can do that as well.  From the same menu where you selected "Bump," choose "Clear Day" instead.  A menu will appear with the option to "unbump" your plans.

Undo

If you bump a day accidentally, you can undo it by clicking the "Undo" link that appears at the top of the page (below the planbook title).

Bumping Notes

  • If you've previously marked holiday and vacations using the Off Days feature, those days will be skipped when bumping.

  • Weekends or any other days that aren't part of your calendar will also be skipped when bumping.
