CommonSpot Elements

Content Well: Class Schedule

The class schedule element accepts 5 parameters to control the content displayed; 1 is required, and 4 are optional. If you provide values for the optional parameters, they will over-ride the default settings.


Custom Parameters

Class schedule data
Setting year and quarter parameters

The data available for display in the Class Schedule element is drawn from the PeopleSoft system.  This data is organized by term; the academic term field in PeopleSoft is composed of a pair of two-digit values; year and quarter.

A guide to using PeopleSoft academic year and quarter values when selecting data:


  • 36 = 2014-2015
  • 37 = 2015-2016
  • 38 = 2016-2017


  • 00 = Fall
  • 20 = Winter
  • 40 = Spring
  • 60 = Summer

The data available for display is limited to terms with active registration periods; you can reliably use the previous and current terms, but forthcoming term data will not be available until registration appointments are scheduled and data is entered in PeopleSoft.

Display  Schedule Detail for a Specific Class

If you enter the class number as a parameter, the element will display the class schedule detail.  The "availability" and "description" parameters can also be applied in the schedule detail display.
