Gantt View of Resource Allocation Management Page

The Gantt view of the Resource Allocation Management page lists all the positions and resources of the specified resource pool in one single page (without pagination). The data load simultaneously as you scroll down the page. If you have a large number of positions and resources in the specified resource pool, we recommend that you switch to the Gantt view to avoid Out Of Memory errors and for better performance.

Note: If you select a resource pool and time periods in the Gantt view of the Resource Allocation Management page, and then refresh the page, the resource pool and time periods you selected are wiped out. This is a limitation. You can switch to the Table view if you want to do so.

The following table describes the items that are specific to the Gantt view of the Resource Allocation Management page.

  • Status of the every position
  • Period and demanded effort of every position

    The number before the slash is the effort allocated to it while the number after the slash is the demanded effort.

  • Period, allocated effort, remaining capacity of every resource

    The number before the slash is the effort allocated to the position while the number after the slash is the resource's remaining capacity.

    If a resource is over-allocated, the remaining capacity is a negative value displayed in red.

You have to refresh the page to get the resource remaining capacity updated in the other positions.
