Once our computers have finished auto-generating your schedule, you can visit the schedule’s RunStat page to see a list of the rules that were violated in your schedule.
Accessing the RunStat page
If your schedule has just finished generating:
When your schedule is finished generating, its status should change from Generating to Generation Complete. To access your schedule’s Runstat page, click on its status.
In the pop-up that appears, click on View Violations. RunStat should then open up in a new window or tab.
If you are looking at an older or already-published schedule:
If your schedule status is something other than Generation Complete (either Not Published, or Published to Everyone/Administrators), you will access its associated RunStat page in a slightly different way. Right-click your schedule’s name, and in the menu that appears click on Get-Info.
You’ll see a pop-up appear on your screen. At the bottom of the pop-up, locate the Schedule Results, Violations, Error(s) section and click on the arrow to open it up.
You should then see something that looks like this:
Click Generation Complete. RunStat should then open up in a new window or tab.
RunStat Overview: Rule violations and other details
Hard Constraints/Rule Violations: Generally speaking, this section will show you all of your rules with a priority of 1,000,000 or higher that were broken in the schedule generation process. If it was necessary to break Assignment Demand, Compatibility, or other non-rule based requirements in order to build your schedule, these types of violations may show up here as well. If you have any questions about what a specific type of rule violation means (or about anything else on the RunStat page), please contact either your consultant or the support line for more details.
Soft Constraint/Rule Violations: This section will show you all of your rules with a priority lower than 1,000,000 that were broken in the schedule generation process.
Rule Description: This is the name of the rule that was broken.
Rule Priority: This is the priority of the rule that was broken.
Personnel Involved: The personnel involved in the broken rule. Depending on the type of rule that was broken, there may be multiple personnel that show up in this column.
Periods Involved: The dates for which the rule was broken.
Assignments Involved: The assignments involved in the broken rule. Depending on the type of rule that was broken, there may be multiple assignments that show up in this column.
You can sort through your schedule violations by clicking on the column header for the column that you wish to sort by. In the example below you will see that sorting by Rule Description lists the rules alphabetically.
You can also filter through the list of violations to look at specific violations. To do this, use the drop-down lists provided and check the information you wish to see and then click Apply. (Note: If you select multiple filters it will take the intersection of the two.)
