Enter the number of hours in the first field and the number of minutes in the next field that you want the system to spend optimizing your master schedule.
Skip courses with rank above
Enter the course rank number of the course at which you want the system to stop optimizing. For example, you do not need to optimize course rank numbers 800-910 if these courses are ranked as such because they are already successfully scheduled. Enter 800 in the Max Rank field to have the system optimize the courses with a course rank of 1-799.
