Time-Based Assignment Limits

On This Page

Hourly limits available in Version 3.8 and up

Time-Based Assignment Limits allow you to set hourly, daily, and weekly limits on assignments for each user.

By default, these periods are static as opposed to being rolling periods (more on rolling below). In other words, “hourly” refers to a given hour block (e.g. 3:00pm-4:00pm), “daily” refers to a given calendar day (12:00am-11:59pm), and “weekly” refers to a calendar week (Sun-Sat).

Assignments made from assignment matchingreimbursementsoverflow, and the priority queue do not count toward time-based limits.

Set Time-Based Limits

To define a time-based limit at the router level:

  1. Navigate to a Kubaru Router, scroll down to the Members list and click Manage Members.
    1. For rule-based routers, scroll down to the Rules list and click the Edit link to the left of a rule.
  2. Enter a Default Time-Based [Object Name] Limit.
  3. Set the limit period to Per HourPer Day, or Per Week.
  4. You can override the default limit for individual members in the Time-Based Limit column. 
  5. Click Save.

Rolling Limit Periods

Available in Version 3.8 and up

Rolling limits always look back a specified period of time from the current time.

For example, if you are using an Hourly limit, a rolling period will track all assignments from one hour ago until now, regardless of what time it is. Daily limits will look back 24 hours, and weekly limits 7 days.

Whether you use rolling limits is specified in the global settings and applies to all routers.

Follow these steps to enable rolling limits:

  1. Navigate to the Settings tab of the Kubaru Console.
  2. Check Rolling Limit Periods.

Stacking Multiple Time-Based Limits

Available in Version 4.9 and up

It’s possible to apply a combination of hourly, daily, and/or weekly limits to users. You can do this by enabling the Stack Time-Based Limits feature.

  1. Navigate to the Settings tab of the Kubaru Console.
  2. Check Stack Time-Based Limits.

Now, when you go to edit a router, or to manage a router’s members, you will see three distinct time-based limit fields instead of just one.

You will not be able to disable the Stack Time-Based Limits setting while you have multiple limits applied to one or more routers.
