Enter preferences in Allocate+

Allocate+ must be in preference entry mode. Check Allocate+ access dates.

During the preference entry mode, you nominate your preferred times for class activities, such as tutorials, laboratories and practicals. For lectures, you make a direct selection from the available times.

At this stage, for activities other than lectures, it doesn't matter who enters preferences first. This system will sort all preferences to minimise clashes before reopening for the adjustment mode. Any direct selections (for lectures only) will be taken by those in first.

Login to Allocate+ to enter your preferred class times

Help with entering preferences

Your units are listed on the left side of the screen.

Each unit has activities underneath (lecture, tutorial, etc.). It's these activities that you need to allocate preferred class times.

If the list is wrong, check your enrolment in WES.

If an activity is run only once, the system will allocate you automatically.

  • Units with a green tick have been allocated for you by your faculty.
  • Those with yellow have allocations pending approval.
  • Units marked with red need to be allocated.

Choose each activity with a red status.

Put your preferred class times in order from 1 (most preferred) to least preferred. The system will tell you how many preferences you need to enter.

Lectures differ slightly as you’ll be selecting a timeslot rather than nominating a preference. This is why you’ll see (SELECT) next to Lectures.

Near the top right of the screen you can switch to calendar view or back to grid view. Sample screenshot
Don't forget to save your preferences before moving on to the next activity. Ensure all class activities for your units have been allocated. You get another chance to change your preferred times once the system sorts then reopens for the adjustment period. Sample screenshot
Activity times may be changed or cancelled

It's a good idea to check Allocate+ each week as we don't notify you if activities change or are cancelled during the preference period.

Next step: After the sort, check and adjust your allocations.
