Rename a subject

Comments (...)

There are three variations on renaming:

 

Changing the virtual name (recommended), only the visible subject name is changed, the subject's file is not really changed. Virtual subject names are a good way of including punctuation in a report.

Rename the actual subject, the original subject file itself is altered

Clone and rename, a copy is made of the subject file, the clone is then renamed

 

There is a useful trick to customise subject titles per pupil using virtual names.

 


Changing the virtual name:

 

Select the subject you want to rename, then click the rename button.
