Changes to Calendars, Schedules

As part of the process to improve editing of calendars and related schedules, here's a description of more changes.

The structure of the Staffing Requirements Calendars ("Calendars") drives the structure of the Assignment Schedule ("Schedule"). Thus to make changes to the structure of the Schedule, one must make changes to the Calendar. Thus the former Schedule actions to CLONE or DELETE assignments have been removed and should be done in the Calendar.

When changing the structure of a Calendar having a related finalized Schedule, the finalized Schedule will change as well, so you must proceed cautiously. Note that related non-finalized Schedules will not be changed. You should delete these and re-run the scheduling engine after making any structural changes.

CLONE will clone the duty entry and create an equivalent TBA assignment in the finalized Schedule.

DELETE will delete the duty entry from both the Calendar and its related assignment in the finalized Schedule.

GENERATE SINGLE EVENT will add new duty entries to the Calendar and create equivalent TBA assignments in the finalized Schedule.

DELETE ALL will function like DELETE for each entry in the list of selected items thus also deleting related assignments in the finalized Schedule.

CHANGE ALL will make the corresponding changes to each entry in the list of selected items.
