As of  Winter ’16 version, FieldExpert supports automatic break creation in every scheduling process.
(up until Winter ’16 automatic break creation was supported only for the optimization process).

Automatic break creation


The logic behind this automation is configured in the ‘Resource Availability’ Work Rule.

There are 2 fields that controls the behavior of the break scheduling:

  • Break Start – Determines the minimum break start time (in the format: {HH:MM}) to create breaks.
  • Break Duration – Determines the length of the breaks created.Breaks - resource availability work rule

If you want to disable this feature, please leave both fields blank.


please note – the behavior configured in the resource availability work rule will have the same impact when optimizing.
