  1. Yes, you can try T2ndB for thirty days without restriction. Afterwards you can decide, if you want to buy it or not.

  2. The app does not use any online feature to protect your data. Therefore the app works perfectly fine offline.

    There is a knows issue in Windows 10 which prevents the app from running offline. In most cases it is simply fixed by installing the Windows 10 Update 1511.
    You can check if you installed the update already by simply do a right click on the start button. Is the background of the menu bright you should install the update.
    It is a rather big update and therefore not automatically installed in all cases.

  3. 1) Open the Windows Store.
    2) Open the charms bar -> Settings -> App updates
    3) Search for updates.
    4) You'll see the newest update for T2ndB.
    5) Install.
    6) Done :-)

    The current version number ist listed in our Blog and on Facebook.

  4. That's pretty easy. After the 30-days-trial-period windows will ask you to buy the full version automatically.

    If you want to buy it earlier, you can go to Settings - > Info & Updates and buy and there you have the opportunity to make your trial a full version.

    In both cases your data won't be effected.

  5. No, you havn't. Your database won't be effected by the upgrade. Nevertheless we recommend to backup your data regularly.

  6. Go to settings -> About and Buy. There you can see the number of days until the trial expires.

  7. Privacy is very important for us. For that reason no data is stored in the so-called cloud. Your data only exists locally on your computer/tablet. If you choose to set a password for the app your data gets automatically encrypted.

  8. No, not at the moment. We are a very small team of only two people and at the moment we are concentrating on the Windows version of T2ndB to give you an optimal user experience under Windows 10. Right now there are no concrete plans for iOS. We're checking our oppurtunities for Android right now.

  9. There are several cases to be considered:

    1. Your current database is not encrypted: In this case your files password becomes your new app password. You will need it every time you open the app to get access to it.
    2. Your current database uses the same password as the file you want to load: Nothing changes for you. The new database will be loaded without asking for a password again. Your app password stays the same.
    3. Your current database uses another password as the file you want to load: Before loading the file you will be asked for the file password. Your app password stays the same and your loaded data will be encrypted with your current app password in the future. The file password is not affected. Future backups of your data will use your current app password.
  10. Use Settings - > database settings -> change password. Type the current password and leave the input fields for the new password empty.

    From now on neither the app nor your database will be encrypted. If you save a new backup it won't be encrypted, too. It can be read with simple SQL-Tools.

  11. This is the number of students in class.

  12. "ue" is for unexcused, "e" is for excused and "ign" is for ignore. If you choose "ign" the absences won't be counted in the absences sum for the student.

  1. Choose "settings" and choose "schedule". Here you can set the number of schedules you need and their behavior too. Please consider the apps hint to the current schedule so that the automatic schedule switch works correctly.

  2. Deleting rooms is only possible in the seating plan. This is for your security: Deleting a seating plan by mistake is not possible. Choose "Add" in seating plan. There you can delete a room with the delete button. ATTENTION: All seating plans depending on this room will be deleted, too.

  1. The marks are automatically calculated in background. Thereby the single mark values are equidistant. At the end the result gets rounded and displayed in the chosen marking system. Marks in a grading system which does not correspond to the courses will be ignored during computing.

  2. When entering the course you are in the category "Grade overview" - colored in the view.
    In the table you see all marks of the class and in the sum column the total mark suggested by the app. Above the table you see the categories you created directly below the main category. If you click one of those you can only see the grades which are created in that and category and below. The view above the table changes. You see the current category - colored. Next to it you see its' neighbors. Above the parent category and below all categories which have been created below the current one.
    In the sum colum you see the total mark computed especially for the currently selected category. This considers all marks in it and below the chosen category.

    By clicking on the child or parent categories you can navigate through the marking tree and check or edit the marks.


  3. Yes, you can.
    To make marking possible in a pedagogically useful way, in any situation you can edit category marks manually. Activate the category you want to change and click in the sum column on the mark value of the student which you want to edit. Now you can select any mark. This new mark will be considered in all further calculations. If you want to go back to the mark suggested by the app just select the sum symbol in the mark selection and apply your selection by "OK".

  4. The number is the current weight for the mark or category. This is needed to calculate a correct end mark suggestion. An example: Imagine you have two categories "participation in class" and "written exams" and you want "participation" to count 60% and "exams" 40% of the end mark. For this you would choose 6 and 4 as weights for the category. Taking a ratio of one third and two thirds would mean weights of 1 and 2. If you want a ratio of 50:50 you can choose 1 for both weights.

    Choosing a weight is also possible for marks. This means you can give one exam a higher weight than the others or you can - by choosing weight zero - you can make the app ignore a whole mark during calculation.

  5. Exporting marks with categories means that the CSV-file contains all marks and all categories. This way you can see the category in which a mark is located at a glance. That's why the table is built by coloumn. Every student has their own column.

    Exporting marks without categories means that the CSV-file only contains the marks. This table is built by line. Every student has their own line. The columns are for the marks.

  6. Go to settings - > marking systems and use the plus button to add marking systems from other countries.

    ATTENTION: You only get correct calculations, if you use the correct marking system.

  1. Every time you add a note, an absence or a piece homework an entry in the class register is created automatically. As a result the class register shows you all the relevant information for each individual day. To show this information simply press the "More"-button within the entry.

  2. Choose "Entries" in the appbar. There you see the entry for the current date. If you choose another date, the entry for this date will be shown. Now you can change the entry. If you click "Save" your changes will be saved and shown in the overview table.

  3. Yes, there is. The app shows the last entry first, so that you don't need to scroll down to see, what you have done during the last few lessons. We know that this is not a desired behavior in printed registers. That's why the data is exported in reverse order. The CSV-file shows the last entry at the end of the table.

  1. The sum in the colored box shows all absences in the current class. It distinguishes between excused and unexcused absences. Open absences are counted as unexcused; ignored absences won't be calculated.

    The absences details table shows all absences including those that the student has in other classes.

  1. No, you havn't got to. You can import your t2ndb-database. Choose 'Courses & students'. In the appbar you'll find 'Import database from T2ndB'.
