The Scheduled allocation method will automatically allocate submissions for the assessment at the end of the submission phase as defined in the workshop setting Availability settings - submissions deadline. Note: Manually switching to the assessment phase will not trigger this process, only the deadline will. If you wish to move to the assessment phase earlier, you will need to use the Random allocation method.
