Least hours so far

OVERVIEW

 

When you add this rule,  the system looks at all employees' scheduled time so far, and gives priority of scheduling for the employee who has least number of hours, by giving him/her the highest grade for a time block. The system tries to even out all employees' number of hours so that all employees have a fair turn.

 

For example, if the maximum hours that employees usually work on a week is 40 hours, and employee A has worked 5 hours while employee B has worked 30 hours, employee A will have a higher grade, and will be considered a better candidate for assignment on an open time block.
