Period Rules

Period Rules are used to create Period rules for roster release and trade. It can be found by going to Editors then Calendar.


Period rules are used to set up and define various kinds of period definitions that are frequently used in N-OC. The most typical example of this is the roster period or crew schedule.


Note: This function will also be used for crew requests later.


Once the rules have been created, the periods can be quickly and easily added in the Periods dialogue. 


Notice that you can, optionally, create different period definitions using the filter option.
