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:


  • subject(s) - Comma-separated list of subject abbreviations used in PeopleSoft


  • year (defaults to the current academic year)
  • quarter (defaults to the current quarter)
  • career (defaults to "all", can be limited to "GRAD" or "UGRD" classes)
  • catalog_num (a comma-separated list of one or more course catalog numbers. This parameter should be used with a single subject only.)
  • availability ("no" will suppress the display of seats available in a specific class)
  • heading (enter "heading=" if you don't want the term and year displayed, or you can supply alternate heading text here)
  • subheading (enter "subheading=" if you don't want the default "Search Results" text displayed, or you can supply alternate text here)
  • description ("yes" will display the course description text in the detailed view - default setting is "no")
  • style (default is "bluetable"; any other valid table style class will apply, or you can remove the style by entering "style=")

In this example the following parameters were provided:


Custom parameters for Year and Quarter were not provided - the element will display results for the current academic term.

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.
