You can use the Defer Resource settings in the Scheduling Options area to skip allocation of specific types of item. There is a separate setting for student sets, staff members, locations, and equipment items. For example, you might choose this option if scheduling of days and times, and staff, is undertaken first, with locations allocated later.
If the Defer resource option is selected, the following actions occur:
- ignores the requirements for resources of the selected type, and the constraints upon resources of that type do not affect scheduling.
- An Avoid Deferred Resourcing Constraint problem is generated for the scheduled activities.
