New Feature - Warnings

February 2020

There is now a feature in PlanIt called Warnings. With this tool you can set parameters so that it will identify and warn you whenever you violate the rules set. The warnings system can be configured to run the following checks: Overstaffed, Understaffed, Overlap Detection, Qualified for Shift, Certified for Shift, Availability Violations, Mandatory Rest, Over Weekly Hours, Under Weekly Hours.

So, for example, if you are changing schedules and you want to make sure that someone does not work until 10pm one day and then have a shift at 2am the next morning, you can set a mandatory rest period of 8 hours. That way, the system will warn you if someone is scheduled back to back with less than 8 hours of rest.
