We describe a scheduling system that supports collaboration between the user and automated optimizer. It enables the user to monitor the optimizer decisions, make any of the decisions manually, and leave the other decisions to the system. Furthermore, it identifies the tasks that require the user's participation, and asks for assistance with these tasks.
