How to make a period as a blank in PowerScheduler?

Dear all,

I have a question when I am scheduling teacher courses. I don't know how to make a period as a blank in PowerScheduler. For example, I want make sure all teachers cannot be scheduled in Period 1 on Monday. Is it possible to make it? And how to make the setting in Prefernce?

 

Many many thanks you all.

If you are working with a 5 day schedule, you would just set a teacher free constraint for that teacher for the given day. In powerscheduler, the days are A-E or whatever you named them. So you'd block out Period 1 for A day.

@JasonFss13You can use a Teacher Free constraint to set a period where a teacher cannot be scheduled, but it goes by Expression and Cycle Day, not calendar day.
