Dispatch Center

Dispatch Center

  • Two views (only for their own job; no job list attribute):
    • One for disponents.
    • Unit view on the livemap as a sidebar with quick buttons (see below "Livemap" point).
  • Disponents take "control" of the dispatch center and can "sign on"/ "sign off" from it at any time.
    • If no more disponents are signed on, the "fallback mode" is activated.
  • Different Modes:
    • MANUAL: Disponents and units can assign dispatches themselves.
    • CENTRAL_COMMAND: Only the disponents can assign dispatches.
    • AUTO_ROUND_ROBIN: Automatic assignment of dispatches to units that are either available, or busy (if none other available).
  • Settings of dispatch center:
    • Enabled: If dispatch center is enabled or not.
    • Mode: Which mode it is run in by default.
    • Fallback Mode: In case the dispatch center is empty, which mode it will fallback into.
  • Status:
    • INACTIVE - No one in the dispatch center (and not run by a bot).
    • ACTIVE - Dispatch center has "humans" signed on to it.
    • AUTO - An automatic system is running the dispatch center, requires the "mode" to be set to an "automatic" mode.
  • Actions:

  • Users can be assigned by disponents and self-assign into one unit of their own job only.

  • Consist of a message, description, and a position (x and y coordinates).
    • If specified or added/updated later on, attributes (list of strings) can be added.
  • Status of the dispatch is "shared" by multiple units, e.g., unit one sets status EN_ROUTE and unit two sets ON_SCENE, both are in the dispatch status log.
    • The "informal" status are ignored in the "current status" when getting the status (e.g., UNIT_ASSIGNED, etc.)
  • Can be created manually via the dispatch center, livemap integration or "the phone" (for now the existing GKSPhone dispatch system is used).
  • Can have attributes which are a list of strings attached to them (e.g., dangerous, gun shots).
  • Disponents can update dispatches, including their status, as they please.
  • Dispatches assigned to an unit can either be "forced" or "requested".
    • "Requested" means that the assigned units get a popup with a timeout of 20 seconds that requires each unit to give their "approval or denial" to taking the dispatch.
      • If a dispatch is not accepted, it will be marked as unassigned if no other unit was assigend to it. "Last one" to not accept, will cause the dispatch status to go to UNASSIGNED
  • If an user leaves an unit and it will be empty, or an unit marks itself as UNAVAILABLE, the dispatches that are assigned to the unit that aren't COMPLETED or CANCELLED, will be set as UNASSIGNED (when no other unit is assigned then).
