CONFIGURATION

Creating a new time gap constraint

To create a new time gap constraint, go to General settings > Right click on Constraints > Create a time gap constraint > Select the dimension

The following window is then enabled:

Specify the characteristics of the constraint, then confirm by clicking on the Validate button.

A Time Gap Constraint has the following characteristics:

Name

Give the constraint a name.

Description

Give the constraint a description. This data is optional.

If the description is completed, the text in this field is the information displayed if the constraint has not been respected. (See Constraint not respected)

History

This represents the creation date and time and the most recent change to the Constraint, together with the login of the user who made the change.

This property is updated automatically.

Activated

If this box is checked, the constraint can be activated. (See below Activation / Deactivation)

Specifics

Type of constraint

There are three possible options:

  • Warning: in this case, a message will appear to warn of a non-respect of the constraint;

  • Prohibition: in this case, an error message will appear to stop the constraint being continually broken;

  • Authentication: in this case, a message will appear to invite the user to re-enter his password.

Mark warning

This checkbox, if checked, surrounds the event with a dotted line if the constraint is not respected. Otherwise, the event will be surrounded by a continuous border.

Resource filter

This filter defines the resources to which Constraint applies.

You can:

  • select an existing filter,

  • or to create a custom filter specific to the constraint (see Customized). To do this, select the comment customized, then click on the button:

For all resources or individually for each resource

State whether the verification of the constraint should be carried out, for:

  • for all filtered resources in a single operation,

  • or, all resources, individually.

Events filter for triggering

This filter defines the events triggering the verification of the constraint.

You can:

  • select an existing filter,

  • or create a custom filter specific to the constraint.

Time gap
  • Day,

  • Hour.

Events filter for verification

This filter defines the events triggering the verification of the constraint.

You can:

  • select an existing filter,

  • or create a custom filter specific to the constraint.

Minimum value to be respected

Modifying a time gap constraint

To modify a time gap constraint, simply re-visit the General settings and modify the constraint as required. (See Creation)

Modifications made to a constraint will only affect future created or modified events.

Events that existed before this modification will not be changed.

Activation/deactivation

A constraint may exist without being active. It must be activated to function.

To see whether a constraint has been activated, go to General settings.

  • An active constraint is preceded by the symbol

  • An inactive constraint is preceded by the symbol

To activate an inactive constraint there are two possibilities:

  • Right-click on the constraint > Activate,

  • Select the constraint then click on the Activate box.

To deactivate an active constraint there are two possibilities:

  • Right-click on the constraint > Deactivate,

  • Select the constraint then click (deselect) the Activate box.

Deleting a time gap constraint

To delete a time gap constraint, right click on the time gap constraint > remove

The deletion of a time gap constrain does not modify the planning data.
