How can I specify the minimum number of days the auto scheduler will leave between services for each volunteer?

Follow

You can easily specify the minimum number of days the auto scheduler will leave between services for each volunteer.  To set this number:

1)   Open any schedule or skeleton inside of MSP.

2)   From the open schedule, click on the Schedule menu at the top of the window and select “Scheduler Settings.”

3)   In this window, check the option that says, “Always leave at least ‘2’ days between the services of each volunteer,” and change the number ‘2’ to the desired number of days.

    Can this days between services be set differently by ministry? For our parish, it depends on the number of people in a ministry (accompanists serve every week, just at different services, whereas other ministries are usually every other week so I had it set to 8 days between). This would save much time in manually filling positions or continually switching preferences in the scheduler.

    Hi Laura,

    At this time these scheduler settings are global, meaning they apply to all ministries.  I will pas on your request to se this by-ministry to our programmers, so they can take this into consideration for future updates.

     Thank you!
