Rules

UNDERSTANDING RULES

 

There are two different types of rules  WorkSchedule.Net: eliminating rules and preference rules.

 

By adding rules, you can instruct WorkSchedule.Net exactly how to decide which employees can be assigned to specific time blocks (eliminating rules), and also what make one employee "better" for a time block than another employee (preference rules).

 

See Eliminating Rules and Preference Rules for a list of currently available rules in WorkSchedule.Net that you can choose to add.
