Time gap constraint: configuration

 

Creating a new time gap constraint

 

To create a time gap constraint, go to the Settings menu > Click on Constraints > Create a time gap constraint on the add button button > Select a dimension.

The following window is then enabled:

time gap constraint creation

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

A Time Gap Constraint has the following characteristics:

 

Name

Give the constraint a name.

If the multi-language management is activated in the Admin center, it will be possible to fill in a name for this constraint in the proposed languages by clicking on the v7_adm_en_parametres_generaux_symbole_multilangue button.

Description

Give the constraint a description. This data is optional.

If the description is entered, the text in this field is the information displayed if the constraint has not been respected.

If the multi-language management is activated in the Admin center, it will be possible to fill in a name for this constraint in the proposed languages by clicking on the v7_adm_en_parametres_generaux_symbole_multilangue button.

Note

Description in french L’écart entre les événements n’est pas respecté !
Description in english The gap between events is not respected!

What is seen in a EN desktop The gap between events is 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 enabled, this button activates the constraint (See below Activation / Deactivation)

 

Specific

 

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

If enabled, this button is used to outline the event with a dotted line if the constraint is not respected. Otherwise, the event will be outlined by a continuous border.

 

Resources filter

This filter defines the resources to which Constraint applies.

You can:

  • select an existing filter,
  • or create a custom filter specific to the constraint (see Customized). To do this, select the Customized comment, then click on the bouton-crayon button.
For all resources or individually for each resource
time gap constraint verify

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 that trigger the verification of the constraint.

You can:

  • select an existing filter,
  • or create a custom filter specific to the constraint.

 

Time gap
  • Day,
  • Time.

 

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
  • fixed value: specify a numerical value.
  • heading value: specify the name of a numerical heading, persistent control total, persistent operation or persistent events value (numerical values only).

Modifying a time gap constraint

 

To modify a time gap constraint, simply go back to the Global 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 the Settings.

  • An active constraint is preceded by the constraint button ok symbol
  • An inactive constraint is preceded by the constraint button deactivated symbol

To activate an inactive constraint there are two possibilities:

  • Right-click on the constraint > Activate,
  • Select the constraint then enable the Activate button.

To deactivate an active constraint there are two possibilities:

  • Right-click on the constraint > Deactivate,
  • Select the constraint then disable the Activate button.

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.
