Welcome to the AntPlanner FAQ! In case you were looking for the latest updates, click here.

What is this site and how did I get here?

If you came here via the AntPlanner website, you may be confused why you're staring at a totally different website now. The reason is because I was too lazy to build out a separate page for the AntPlanner FAQ! You can click here to return.

What is AntPlanner?

A visual way for you to experiment with course schedules. AntPlanner is maintained by me, a UCI alum.

Features include:

  • Rich calendar interface for easy course addition & removal
  • Overlappable calendar time slots
  • Saving and loading of course schedules
  • Always up-to-date course search listings

How Do I use AntPlanner?

  1. Search for a desired course by using the form and clicking 'Submit Search'
  2. Add a course by clicking a course in the course listing table
  3. To remove a course, click on the course event in the calendar

Is AntPlanner reliable?

AntPlanner has tests that ensure stability and correctness, however, it is still possible for bugs to appear due to the nature of software. Though this is unlikely, be advised that I am not responsible for anything that happens as a result of using AntPlanner.

Will AntPlanner work with my browser?

AntPlanner is mostly tested on Chrome but it should work in most modern browsers. If not, create a bug report here.

Known Issues

Aside from the bug list, please be aware of the following known issues:

  • Courses are "final" once they appear on the calendar. So if that course changes later (e.g. time or location of class), these changes are not reflected in the calendar as AntPlanner does not track course changes.

How can I contribute to AntPlanner?
