Work Schedule Generator

Work Schedule Generator



You are given a sequence of employees with their work preferences and skills. Also you have business needs as required working time and tasks. Your function should return a schedule, that satisfies business needs with available employees (if it's possible). Now, let's dive into the details.

staff is a dictionary, where keys are names of employees and values are dictionaries as well. Every values dictionary includes three key-value pairs:

  • "pref_shifts" - list of strings: shifts, employee wants to work at (may be "first", "second" or both in this order);
  • "days_off" - list of strings: days, employee wants to be off (full names of weekdays);
  • "skills" - list of strings: jobs, employee may do.

business_needs is a list of three values: a weekday, for which to make schedule - string; number of shifts to be on this day - integer; tasks, which should be done on this day - list of strings.

Notice about shifts. Each employee may work at first shift, second or both (all day), excluding his/her days off. Number of shifts for business means number of different shifts to be present at this day. For example, if number of shifts 3, in may be covered by an employee, who works full day (both his shifts, "first" and "second", total - 2) and any employee more (because every employee has at least one shift), or by three shifts from different employee. Number of shifts should be divided equally between "first" and "second" day shifts. If number of shifts is odd (and not equal 1), "first" day shift must include one shift more, than "second" day shift.

Skills may be partly/totally the same for different employees. So, when you fill the day shifts, chose employees with less number of skills - they are usually less paid. If the number is the same - chose by name alphabetically. From the point of employees engagement, first day shift has priority: it's more important to have employees with less number of skills there. Tasks is a minimum sequence to be done - the sequence of aggregated skills for this day may be wider. Each task must be done (covered with respective...

CheckiO Extensions

CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.

In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)

Install CheckiO Client first:

pip3 install checkio_client

Configure your tool

checkio --domain=py config --key=

Sync solutions into your local folder

checkio sync

(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)

checkio serv -d

Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon

checkio install-plugin
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium

Read more here about other functionality that the checkio client provides. Feel free to submit an issue in case of any difficulties.
