After logging in, all instances (matching specifications) available for matching and their times will be listed. In the first block you can find instances for Practical Courses and Seminars. In the second block there are the instances for the Matching with Bundled Preferences. Your instance might be invisible, please use the link, the matching-team has sent to you and share it with your students.

Trough clicking on the course name you will be referred to its course page in the Matching System. Additionally to the name of the course, this page will show you all timeslots of your tutor groups and its capacity. In a timeslot we collect all tutor groups that have the same day, starting- and ending-time.

Additionally you can see the popularity of each timeslot. Here we have two ranks:

  1. Popularity: If a student has ranked any set (bundle) of time slots containing this timeslot, this value will be increased by one (if the student has this timeslot in multiple bundles, he is counted only once)
  2. Acceptable Popularity: Obsolete attribute.

Additionally you can see the overall capacity of your course (summarized over all tutor groups) and the overall demand (number of students, who have at least one of your tutor groups in their preference list). If you are one of the administrators you will see the registered administrators for this course.
