The Resource View
The Resource View shows you all jobs and tasks in a resource-centric view but without displaying the assignment to resource groups. This can be especially useful if you have resources that are assigned to multiple groups.
The design of the Resource View is based on the structure of a Gantt chart. On the left, there is a table, displaying resources and their relating tasks as table rows.
On top of the right part of the Resource View a time scale is displayed, below it the chart of your schedule shows the tasks which are assigned to the respective resources as bars. Calendar grids in white or grey indicate working (white) and non-working times (grey) of the resources.
Below you will find detailed information of the Resource View's structure and its manifold ways of editing resources and tasks.
To see/hide the tasks that are assigned to a resource, click the corresponding icon
|Click to expand resource|
|Click to collapse resource|
The resource is displayed as table row in the table area while in the diagram area the bars, each representing one task of a specific job assigned to that resource, are arranged as chain, one row per task.
Each task is shown in a single table row while in the diagram area each task of this resource is displayed as bar.
Information and editing options in the table area
|The selected resource will be copied and inserted at the end of the respective resource group.|
|The resource will be deleted.|
|Opens the "Manage Resource Details" dialog where all the resource's details like resource name, resource group, and work time can be edited.|
|The infinity symbol to the left of the resource name indicates that the respective resource is defined as infinite. This means that this resource can be allocated to an unlimited number of tasks at one time.|
|The red exclamation mark left to the resource name indicates a capacity overload at the respective resource, that can occur using the manual (and hybrid) scheduling mode.
At the same time, a small red bar appears below the corresponding task(s) in the diagram area.
Information and editing options of the diagram area
|Red bar indicates delay of task|
|Clicking a bar will mark all bars of the corresponding job|
A small red bar below the tasks indicates a capacity overload at the respective resource, that can occur using the manual (and hybrid) scheduling mode.
|Right-click on a bar calls a context menu to edit the Task Details, to set or remove constraints, to modify the sequence number, or to show this specific task in the Job View and directly scrolling to it.|
|When hovering over a task you will see the release date and the due date of the respective job shown as a vertical line. In case the job is late, the due date line will turn red.|
