"(Wo)man vs. Machine" Challenge

Help our scheduler get smarter, and win $10 account credit.

After having clicked the big green "Schedule" button, did you receive the message "Did not find any solutions" for all five scheduling attempts?  If that's you, but yet you have a schedule created by hand that you believe meets all of the criteria in your caseload, submit your manually created schedule to us.  If your manually created schedule is valid and satisfies all constraints as you entered them in the caseload editor, we'll credit your account $10.

To submit, please send the following information in an email to help@slpscheduler.com:

The student number comes from the caseload editor.  Please avoid using student names in email, due to HIPAA.

Every row in the table should map to one student session.  If there are multiple sessions per student (e.g. #2 in table above), please include each session as its own row in the table.  There should be the same number of rows in your table as there are sessions in your caseload.

Thanks for helping us improve our scheduling engine!
