Can Tied Courses be scheduled with the same resources at different times?

Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud's School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks-constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same.  
We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.


After running Generate Master Schedule for different courses, Tied Courses are not being scheduled with their previously scheduled counterparts.
Currently Schedule Maker can only schedule Tied Courses when they are included in the same run of Generate Master Schedule. To ensure that they are being scheduled appropriately, include all tied courses together in the same run of Generate Master Schedule.

Steps to Duplicate

In this scenario, Course A is tied to Course B
  1. Run Generate Master Schedule for a list of courses including Course A, but not Course B.
  2. After the schedule has been generated, see Course A is now scheduled with all needed resources.
  3. Run Generate Master Schedule again for a list of courses including Course B, but not Course A.
  4. See Course B is scheduled, but is not necessarily sharing resources with Course A.
