Calendar and Resource Capacity


#1

Hello,

I’ve read through documentation and seems to be very interesting. Can you please help with below answers:

  1. Calendar : If resource is assigned with specific calendar, does it applicable automatically to task assigned to the resource. Example. Resource works from 8 am to 5 pm. Resource working on any task will inherit resource calendar? How do we bring it in sync. Any example if you can share will be great help.

  2. Resource leveling: Histogram is very good, however does Gantt do auto resource leveling?
    Please help with example if resource leveling and allocation inline with capacity.

Thanks,

Hello,

Calendar : If resource is assigned with specific calendar, does it applicable automatically to task assigned to the resource. Example. Resource works from 8 am to 5 pm. Resource working on any task will inherit resource calendar? How do we bring it in sync. Any example if you can share will be great help.

If a resource is assigned to a task, the task obtains the resource calendar:

Here are examples:

Resource leveling: Histogram is very good, however does Gantt do auto resource leveling?
Please help with example if resource leveling and allocation inline with capacity.

Gantt doesn’t have a built-in feature for calculating the resource allocation. You need to manually implement that by using Gantt API and Javascript. In our samples, there are examples of the implementation that can help you to start:
