User Manual for Optime

Please note that the user manual has been re-organised. You will find all the same information as before but all pages have been moved under this page. The changes allow us to link every page to different language versions so that if you should land on Finnish or Swedish user manuals, you can switch language from the language selection menu.

OptimePortal can be found at the following addresses:

OptimePortal (Optime from now on) is a website used for browsing teaching calendars, surveying obstacles and preferred teaching times, and making requests for room bookings that are not related to teaching.

Optime can be used by all staff members of the University of Helsinki who have a university username. Students use WebOodi, Sisu and Studies service. You can log in with your university username and password. To log out, click on your name in the top right corner of the site and then “Logout”.

The Optime can be used in Finnish, Swedish and English. The site has a two-hour timeout. There is also a mobile version of the Optime that can be used to browse the calendar on mobile devices.
