Scheduling preferences are used to help determine room suitability, as well as score. A section meeting will automatically inherit any applicable scheduling preferences based on its term's default preference set. However, preferences may be edited at the section meeting level if an override is required to meet the specific needs of the section.
To edit scheduling preferences for the section meeting:
- Click to view the section and meeting you would like to edit.
- The Preferences section of the form displays any default preferences and their source. Click the Add button to select a preference for any one of the preference types.
- Select a weight for the item on a scale of 1-10.
- Optionally, you may choose to "Require" or "Exclude" the selected preference item. If a preference is required, this preference must be met or a room is not assigned. If a preference is excluded, it is removed from consideration.
- To remove a preference from the list, click on the delete icon to the left of the specific preference you wish to remove. If an individual default preference is removed, the item will be crossed out and can re-instate this preference at any time by clicking the restore icon.
- Place a check in the box next to "Override" to block all preferences that may be applied from default preferences for a specific preference type. If this flag is removed at a later date, the inherited preferences will return.
- Click Save.
