Time gap constraint use: use

 

If activated, and if the event created or modified is included by the triggering filter, the Time gap constraint may or may not be respected.

 

Constraint respected

In this case no message will be displayed. The action for the creation, modification or movement of the event will continue normally.

 

Constraint not respected

In this case a message will be displayed. This message differs, depending on whether the situation merits a warning or a prohibition.

 

Warning

The following interrogation message appears:

time gap constraint question

Answer the question: Would you like to continue?

  • Either by clicking on the Yes button. In this case, the creation or modification will continue, despite the constraint. However the event is marked,
  • Or by clicking on the Yes to all button. In this case, the creation or modification will continue, despite the constraint. All the events are marked,
  • Or, by clicking on the No button. In this case the creation, modification or movement is not completed.

Prohibition

The following error message appears:

time gap constraint prohibition

You must then click on the OK button. The creation, modification or movement is not completed.

 

Authentication

The following message appears:

time gap constraint authentication

Enter the password and click on the OK button to validate the event. Click on Cancel to cancel the creation/modification of the event.

Event marking

If a warning type constraint is triggered and you choose to ignore it by clicking on Yes or Yes to all, the event is created or modified with specific markings.

The marking is only active if the Mark warning button is enabled.

This marking can be seen later using various methods:

  • The border of the time bar,
  • The event tooltip,
  • The description of the time bar,
  • The event filters.
