Override Indicator: check box for the following conflict situations:
Any course with “The Staff” (ID “989999999”) as the instructor, to avoid a system delay and instructor conflict.
Multiple section courses (except the first section, e.g., A01) and cross listed courses to avoid an instructor conflict.
