In cases where it is desirable to inhibit DSPs from entering HPC times if they have not completed a certain training, certification or other events, follow these steps:
- On the Scheduler screen, add an Event to the Scheduler using the category "Required for HPC Services" (this event category has already been added). Be sure to include the staff name/DSP in the event. Here is an example:
- Once the Scheduler has been setup with any events using this category, the DSP will not be able to enter HPC times as long as any of these Events have not been marked "Completed" when the current date has past the scheduled date. If the DSP tries to submit a time on the HPC screen with a required event that is past due, the HPC time will not be saved and this message will appear:
- Once all Events scheduled with this category prior to the current date have been marked "Completed", the DSP will be able to enter times.
Note: you can change the color of this Event Category any time, but never change the text "Required for HPC Services".
