Solving Scheduling Conflicts Using Machine Logic?


Recommended Posts

Hey All

i have client that has a deep complex scheduling problem. They have two locations. Each location has multiple zones. Each zone has multiple activities that can be done in them. For a location to run a particular activity in a particular zone it must have a teacher. There are multiple teachers each with their own specializations. Each teacher had their own schedule of availability. 
 

With me so far?

now there are students. Each student must complete x core activities (do not require a teacher) and up to 5 specializations each week (requires teacher) 
 

they are wanting to use FM to manage the computer logic and present schedules for students that meet all the above parameters (and more). 
 

From a design/logic perspective I’ve been wondering if I off load the processing to the server and let it crunch through various permutations until it finds a solution. But my gut says there might be a more elegant response than simply brute forcing the solution. Would machine learning help? Are there other approaches I should consider? 
 

Cheers

Nuos

      Hello
      I have a script which prints from the iPad but the problem is that it ignores the container fields which have signatures in them. This area is blank the rest of the document prints fine.
      This script works fine on a computer the signatures print.
      When I save as a PDF on the iPad the signatures are there.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated. Filemaker Go 18 and 19 both have the problem. I have updated the iPad OS.
      On the computer we use v19.
      Thank you

      Hello 
      I have a script which works fine on the computer but does not quite work on the iPad. The Send Mail creates an email with an attachment and should insert a 'to' and 'cc' field in to the Mail fields. 
      On the iPad 'to' and 'cc' are missing. If I hard code in an email address it works.
      The attachments are added fine on the iPad. Everything works fine on the computer using FileMaker 19.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have updated the IOS on the iPad and tried version 18 and 19 FMGO.
      Thanks
      Chris

      Working on a Go app for a customer, and building in a photo feature. Client would like the ability to select multiple photos in the Camera Roll and import them as one step - something like importing a folder of images in desktop FMPro. 
      From what I've seen so far, it doesn't look possible - Import script step doesn't work for picture/movie files on iOS, and Insert From Device (Photo Library) only allows selecting one photo. 
      Is anyone else aware of a way of making this work?

      Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them.
      Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll.
      Thank you!

      I have a webviewer that is loading a PDF from a container field. I'm doing this by using the following calculation in the webviewer:
      "data:application/pdf;base64," & Base64Encode ( iostest::PDF_Current )
      The PDF loads fine however on iOS it does not fill the screen (oddly enough on macos, it DOES fill the screen). Auto resizing on the webviewer is set to expand on all sides. The webviewer is the same size as the layout area as well.
      I tried to use an iframe with the method below however it still doesn't expand:
      "data:text/html,<!doctype><html> <body> <iframe src='data:application/pdf;base64," & Base64Encode ( iostest::PDF_Current ) & "' style='width:100%;height:100%;'></iframe> </body> </html> What can I do to get the PDF to be full screen on iOS in a webviewer? See attached image for reference.
