Lukkarikone (Schedule Machine) is a view to the room reservation system and is used as a student schedule publishing tool. The user enters the group the schedule of which he or she wants to see or, alternatively, the implementation the reservations of which he or she wants to see. The machine compares the given criteria to the room reservation data base and prints a schedule on the screen.

Manual in Finnish
Remote access and permissions
Lukkarikone can be accessed anywhere but to save a schedule the user must log in the system using his or her Metropolia user ID.
Q: Why does the schedule not open automatically at logon?
A: We have not been able to implement the feature yet.
Q: If the schedule changes, can the changes be viewed?
A: Lukkarikone is completely real-time, i.e. changes made in the room reservation system can immediately be seen in Lukkarikone.
Q: Can I narrow down a search or hide items e.g. depending on the information field contents?
A: This feature does not exist (not at least yet). Each schedule item is processed separately (room reservation) and would have to be hidden separately.
Q: Can a schedule be imported from Lukkarikone to Outlook or Gmail?
A: You can send a saved schedule to Metropolia email from the settings tab:
- Create a schedule - save it / or open a saved schedule
- On the Settings tab, click on Move to Outlook calendar
On the Settings tab you can also save a schedule in iCal format and save it to your e.g. Gmail calendar. Schedules cannot be ordered to Gmail calendar. Saving only a static schedule, describing your schedule as it is at a given moment, can be saved. Such a schedule is not updated automatically when exported in an iCal format. Use always Lukkarikone or the mobile Lukkarikone to get a current schedule!
Q: Can I use Lukkarikone with a direct link to a calendar of a specific group?
A: No. You could try using ihana, the mobile version of Lukkarikone.
Q: Why can't I save my schedule?
A: You need to login first and then save your schedule through Settings menu. You can only access a saved schedule from Settings.
Q: Why don't I see my schedule when I login?
A: We are adding the feature to edit your default schedule in the near future.
Q: Why can't I save my schedule in my bookmarks or access it via direct link?
A: The system saves the users' schedule by using information accessed only by signing in. This feature provides security in all Metropolia systems and allows further personalisation.
Q: Why can't I see all items in my schedule?
A: Items were either inserted wrongly or not at all.
Q: Why don't I see future schedules?
A: You can only see schedules that are created/saved in Metropolia system.
