Separation rule if different locations

OVERVIEW

 

When you add this rule, you enforce a different number of non-working hours between any two time blocks assigned for a certain employee depending on the department. If the number of hours between the end time of the first time block and the start time of the second time block is less than the number of hours that you specify on this rule's setting and the two shifts take place in different locations, this rule will be broken.

 

For example, if you specify that no employee should be scheduled if he/she just worked 8 hours ago at a different location, and you try to assign an employee to a time block that starts at 6pm at location B, while they are already assigned to a time block that ends at 5pm location A, both time blocks will be considered breaking the rule and will display the warning "SEPARATION" when you show conflicts.
