You basically have the idea: -Students are matched to Host Families (We have Students, but we do not have Host Families) -It does not matter how many holds a Coordinator has. They can have zero. It is to there discretion. -Coordinators pick students to place.
It is fairly involved. But I have the rest worked out. I just don't feel right about this hold table.

The goals are to: - provide each host family with a student - keep each coordinator busy with three students - make sure each student has a coordinator - make sure students don't get stuck indefinitely in any particular stage Basically, this can end up being a fairly involved project... > -----Original Message----- > Could I get a plain-language explanation of the process of a 'hold'? > I'm not entirely clear what is happening, and what an 'expiry' means > in the context of the hold and what a '#1 position' would represent > for a student. -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
