Resolving Conflicts with Repeats & Rotations
Repeats and Rotations are quick and easy to use when scheduling complex rotations for members. Before applying a repeat and rotation, Aladtec will automatically check for conflicts. If any conflicts are found, a warning will be displayed. The warning will help identify whether:
- the member is already scheduled for a different shift
- another member is already scheduled for the shift
- shifts are not open for the member to work
- the member already has scheduled time off
When applying a Repeat and Rotation, if any conflicts occur, a warning will be displayed. The date/time and type of each conflict will be included in the warning. As a helpful reminder, a key describing the conflict types is displayed at the bottom of the warning page.
In the example below, the warning shows the member will be successfully scheduled where blue squares are displayed. If the member is already scheduled, pink squares with the letter S are displayed. The option to either leave the member’s time as currently scheduled or change the member’s time to the new rotation is provided. To view additional information on where the member is already scheduled, use the Schedule Views or the Hourly Editor.
When time is already taken by another member or block time, a warning will display pink squares with the letter T, as shown in the example below. Confirming the rotation will not overwrite the time already taken. If the member needs to be scheduled into the time that’s already taken, use the Hourly Editor to remove the currently scheduled member and then reapply the repeat and rotation.
When a member has approved Time Off during the requested rotation, the warning will include orange squares with the letters TO, as shown in the example below. Confirming the changes will not overwrite the Time Off. If the member needs to be scheduled, use Schedule Views, or My Schedule, to cancel the approved Time Off.
