    Is it possible to have excel automatically generate a weekly timetable based on various scheduling information?

    For instance, let's assume we're scheduling courses for a college. We would have 10 courses, each of which would meet twice a week at different times. If I input all the raw data (course title, date, time, etc.), can excel generate a weekly timetable that will make it easier for me to visually identify conflicts in scheduling?

    Seems like a rather simple function, but I can't figure it out for the life of me. I even tried searching for templates, but no luck.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    A calendar app would be better suited to your need than Excel.

    Have not used this, but you might want to check PlanBook, since it is only $35 (now available only through AppStore.

    Thanks for the replies (and sorry for my late response), but this is work related, so purchasing additional software simply isn't an option.

    Do I have any recourse?
