Preventing family members from being scheduled at the same service time
Ensuring that two members of a family are never scheduled at the same time can be helpful in cases where parents have a young child that must be looked after, or even when you have two siblings who may not serve well together. With MSP's "babysitter" option, it is easy to accommodate this need.
Step by step: Prevent family members from being scheduled at the same time
  1. Go to the Family Groupings pane inside of MSP
  2. Select the family and click the "Edit Family" button.
  3. Click on the name of one of the family members, then check the "Babysitter" box. Repeat for the other member of the family who should never be scheduled at the same time as the previous member. This option gets its name from the need to have one parent not scheduled to care for young children. However, it can be used for other situations where members of a family should not be scheduled at the same service time, like divorced couples or unruly siblings.
  4. Once this is set for the family, click OK.
