Solver Groups

Screen Description

The Solver Groups screen provides a list of solver groups for the current academic session.

A solver group is a group of departments and managers where each of the managers can create (and commit) a timetable for all the given departments together. A department can only be in one solver group, but a manager can be a part of more than one solver group.
