Day-after rules


To set up day-after rules in Attending schedules, click on a shift or service name that you want to establish a rule for. In the Infobox Window, select Day-after rules... For resident schedules, go to Window → Day-after rules.

Call service infobox ... with

There are two rule types: On rules ("must") and Off rules ("must not"). An "On" rule automatically places the staff member into the shift or service. An "Off" rule filters the staff member from your staffing list according to the rule. You may set both kinds of rules for each shift or service.

The 7-column grid represents same day, next day, two days after, etc. It does not represent Sunday through Saturday.

In this example, when a staff member is on call on a particular day, he/she can't be on "Backup" the same day and can't serve the same call the next day. The maroon "X" indicates when a staff member can't work. Notice in the example, that "M. Rover" initials "MR" does not appear in the selection the next day.

the admin, you may override the rules anytime when you need to.

  • To override an "Off" rule: switch the Infobox window view to All Staff. You'll see a list of all your staff whether they are available or not. Staff that are unavailable are flagged with a symbol. The maroon X with a blue arrow through it is the flag for a rule violation. Select the staff member's name to place into the assignment. The flag continues to appear next to the staff member's name on the schedule. Violated rules appear flagged in the OnCall schedule, but not at Amion.com.

  • To override an "On" rule: Disable Pattern fill call in the Options Menu along the top.

Use Add-on rules when there is an exception to your "On" and "Off" rules. To enable, hold down CTRL while you click on the maroon "X" or the green in the rule. The Rule Writer Window appears to create an "Add-on" rule. Use the bottom drop-down box to set the parameters of the rule. For example, if a staff member can't be on call the next day except for weekends, then select "Day of week" from the list. Then click Monday-Friday. Once finished, the Add-on rule displays yellow in the rule.

Select the by week option if the rule is weekly instead of daily. For example, if you can't be on call two weeks in a row. Or if you can't be on Backup call the following week of call.
