Alternative room chain

previous  Top  next

If you would like the room optimisation tool to consider the room capacity of alternative rooms, the alternative room ring must remain open, i.e. you need to create an alternative room chain, instead. The example below illustrates this.





The example shows that room R3a has a capacity for 22 persons. If this room is unavailable, the next suitable room for this lesson is the slightly larger room R2a. The next room in the chain is the even larger room R2b etc. The alternative room for R1a is R1b, and the chain ends here because R3a with its lower capacity is unsuitable as an alternative room for R1b.
