  • Snap Schedule - Assignment Conflict Flags

    Posted on October 9th, 2010 Administrator No comments

    For each shift assignment displayed in any of the schedule views, Snap Schedule performs a set of conflict checks to determine if an assignment conflicts with other shift assignments, time off, employee availability, or your business’ work schedules. Snap Schedule also performs a set of conflict checks on each task assignment displayed in the Task view to determine if the task assignment conflicts with other task assignments within the shift or if the task assignment conflicts with the shift requirements.

    When a conflict check detects an exception, Snap Schedule displays a small red flag in the lower right corner of the assignment cell. To see the warning message, you can hover the mouse pointer over the assignment cell and read the tooltip. Alternatively, you can double-click the assignment cell to bring up the assignment form to view assignment details and make any changes as necessary.
