Course Optimizer

The course optimizer is the tool used to automatically (or manually) assign a room to a course.  This advanced tool is used by registrars to manage room assignments.  Depending on the needs of the institution, room assignments may come from the SIS (preassigned) or the assignment can be made directly in Mazévo, with the resulting assignments updated into the SIS.
