    Is 'designated' correctly used in the sentence?

    You must follow the timetable that has been designated for you.

    Is 'designated' correctly used in the sentence? If not, what is the appropriate word?

    Thanks.

    It sounds odd. You might consider, "... that has been assigned to you."

    Or "set for you".

    You must follow the timetable [that/which] you have been allocated.
