Enhances Schedule Permissions and Schedule Visibility

Useful for all:

Anyone can use and benefit from this

Large scale implementations benefit:

ParkMyCloud users and team leads in larger organizations would benefit most

How it would work:

1: There needs to be a concept of Enterprise Schedules , Team Schedules and User schedules.

A) Enterprise Schedules:

  1. Visible and available to all in organization

  2. Created by and modifiable only by PMC Admins

B) Team Schedules:  (Admins have ability to limit Uptime hours set on team schedules, similar to how override limits can be set)

  1. Can be created by Admins, Team leads, or team members in PMC

  2.  Visible only to PMC Team that schedule was created for in PMC (and Admins)

  3.  Modifiable to team leads and team members with permission to modify/edit existing schedules

  4.  Team leads maintain ability to increase default uptime limits set by admins similar to override limits

C) User Schedules:

  1. Can be created by admins team leads or team members with ability to create schedules in PMC

  2.  Only visibly by user who creates the schedule.

  3.  Schedule must adhere to uptime limits set by PMC Admins


Example of Functionality:

1. Admin can create Enterprise default schedules.  These are visible by all and available to all with access to change parking schedules.  Enterprise schedules can only be modified by PMC Admins.

2. As a team lead I only want to see schedules that pertain to my teams and enterprise schedules.  I don't need to see all other schedules created by other teams or users

3.  As a user I only need to see Enterprise schedules and team schedules

Visually in the U.I. the schedules can be grouped by type ( enterprise, team, user) and made expandable/collapsable

    Thank you Jacob. This idea will be looked at this year as part of the migration of PMC features into Turbonomic.

    One approach is to assign a scope to schedules not based on users but based on a cloud scope i.e. Global, Subscription, Resource Group. Users would have access or not depending on the user scope.
