Exclusivity Groups

When setting up the automation for your institution's database, you may have a group of similar rules, and within that group, you have some rules that should have a higher priority than the others. A great example of this is Staff Assignment rules. Your institution may have ten rules that assign students to staff by major, but you may want all transfer students to be assigned to a specific person regardless of major. Use an exclusivity group to buddle a set of rules together and set a priority order for the rules in the group:


  • Number the Priorities in increments of five or ten - this allows you to add rules to the exclusivity group at any time in the future.
  • All rules in an exclusivity group must use the same Base.
  • All rules in an exclusivity group must be the same Rule Type.
