Schedule Violation Warnings

To avoid/reduce violations you will be warned about potential violations as you make changes to your schedule. Each time you make a change to a shift that causes one or more violations, a warning modal will appear.

You will also see a warning when assigning shifts through the Shift Pool that could cause a violation. 

Before publishing a schedule, if there are violations that will be incurred, you will see a summary showing the number of violations, the total cost, and details of each violation.Once published the violation will be recorded in the report. Changing a shift multiple times can incur a violation each time, so be sure to consider the costs before making last minute schedule changes.
