Menu display

Functions shown under the tabs on the top screen are now listed in the menu displayed on the left side of the screen.

If the screen width is narrowed down, the menu moves to the top of the screen. Thanks to this implementation, usability for smartphone and tablet users has been improved.

Functions were registered after displaying class information in the old layout. The new layout allows users to directly access each function from the top page. Selecting a function from the operation menu will display the registration screen.

List Sorting and Filter Settings

The new layout can store the specified sort order. The new layout also makes it possible to make filter settings by entering a given character in each item.

Clear all filter/sort settings.
[Set Display Column]
Sets whether or not to display the term, day of the week/hour, grader and number of students. Enabling auto selection will automatically hide items in order from the lowest priority when the screen width is narrowed down.

Date settings

The new layout allows users to set dates in calendar format for items whose dates have been set using the drop-down list.
