Scheduling solutions?

Your analysis is only correct if all 20 users each week want as much time as
possible. If a quarter of them just want one 3-hour session each, a 10 hour
limit should indeed leave unclaimed time. I'm not saying an 8-hour limit
would not be preferable, but we do need to be careful not to overmanage and
end up with unclaimable time slots.

i counted 20 users last week.

slot size = 7 x 24 / 20 = 8.4

So allocating 10hrs/wk is clearly over the available time. to free up the
scarece resource would have to set the limit to less than 8 hours.
