Allows blocking of assignments if the resources are overlapping. Note that this does not apply to flexible departures as those block whole days by default.
Unavailabilities delete conflicting previously made assignments
Enable automatic deletion of any previously created assignments if an unavailability period is scheduled for the resource at that time.
Show departures without shift location associated in resource manager
By default, only departures which have a shift location associated are available in Resource Manager. This is to ensure that only the operational departures are used for assignments. In case you don't have a shift scheduling system connected to PaxFlow, then all departures are displayed in the Resource Manager.
