Optimise your schedule, and make it work for you
Drag & Drop
To schedule a task, simply drag & drop it onto the schedule
view - it really is that simple! To make sure you don't make simple
mistakes, the schedule display will indicate which dates are valid
for a given task using a simple colour-coding scheme of red, yellow
Grouped by Resource
By default, the scheduling view is separated into 'lanes', with
each resource having their own lane. You can easily see which
resources have the most tasks, and which have none.
Foresight prevents resources being overburdened with work. If
you have an 8 hour working day, unless you explicitly specify
otherwise, you will only be able to schedule 8 hours work. Any
extra work will flow over onto the next working day.
This 'honest scheduling' policy will help avoid getting into
sticky situations with work not getting done just because there's
too much on.
Information, Warnings and Errors
If there are any problems detected in the schedule, for example
a dependency that isn't met or a task overrunning, a simple
easy-to-read list will let you know.
The current state of each task can be gleaned by looking at the
- Blue: a task scheduled, but not yet started
- Purple: a task that is underway
- Yellow: a task that is having difficulties
- Red: a task that's in trouble
A Feed of Tasks to Schedule
All tasks that need to be scheduled, or have more time
scheduled, are shown in a list from which you can drag &
The drag & drop timesheeting feature gets tied back to the
planned and scheduled tasks, so you can verify the accuracy (or
otherwise) of your project estimates.
