Import Banner section attributes for use in Scheduling Preferences Rules

We would like to use Banner section attributes (where we designate delivery method: online, etc.) in our scheduling preferences rules. For example, for sections with a D1S attribute in Banner, we would build a rule to "do not optimize" as these are sections that have a set meeting pattern but are fully online.




  • We could build different optimizer runs based on an attribute. It gives another way to select a population of sections besides Department, which is course-based.

  • Hello Todd & Mary,

    FYI, I posted in Product Feedback over a year ago on this subject as well ... "Delivery Method" as a filter criteria for Scheduling Preferences ... Such as an English Composition course taught as In-Person Lecture only (meet in classroom) OR as Hybrid (meet in PC lab)  ...

    For about the past 2 years (AS v8.x), our academic schedulers assign Online-Only sections to Building = "ONLINE" and Room = "N/A" ... so that Room Assignment Optimizer sees those sections as already assigned and skips trying to modify them ...

    Best regards, Jason
