ANALYZE Shifts for Conflicts

When viewing shifts in the future, the Sortable List view also includes a special Analyze Shifts button that allows you to see if any of the assigned shifts conflict with:

  1. Maximums set for that helper
  2. Their "prefer and dislike" help times, or "cannot help" times
  3. Or minimum time off between shifts, etc.
Conflicts could occur if helpers changes their preferences after you have created the schedule or if a coordinator has manually assigned a shift after being warned of a conflict, or if the helper picks up a shift off the Tradeboard.

It can be useful to Analyze Shifts before publishing to check for any conflicts due to last minute changes to helper preferences or constraints.
