  1. Hi guys, The financial view if always at the bottom of the screen, even though we don't use it all the time. Some users complain that we should have an option to enable or disable ( view/not view the financial part) Is that something that you guys are looking into? Mihai
  2. Hi Guys, The Capacity report works only on a week slice period. Even though I try to change it to Month, it doesn't save it. Any ideas how to fix it ? Also, for Capacity try to include the Count of FTE. That will give a lot of sense in knowing how many headcounts we have in the organization. We have a high number of externals that have <100% Capacity. Maybe is something that I am missing in the reporting setup and I need some help setting it up M
  3. @Stefan Schneider Hi Stefan. Just tested the rights management and found a small issue. I can still change Milestones even though all Project rights are disabled. I find it a bit confusing that you can still update a Project Milestone, when you don't have access to create edit, or update the project itself. M
  4. HI Stefan, Happy to see this feature coming out to Meisterplan. Do you have any info on the release date....keen to try it out! Mihai
  5. Hi @Daisy & @Alexia Would you be interested in having a learning session where we can share best practices and maybe improve the way we use Meisterplan? I would definitely see some benefit! Let me know if you have time and I can schedule a session. Best Mihai
  6. Hi Stefan, Thank you for your answer but I am still a bit confused about this topic. Let's say we have 2 resources with 2 different calendars (India and China with their respective hours). Both of these resources represent 1 resource therefore 1 FTE (Full time equivalent). The way I understand it works : Capacity for India is 1.2 FTE because they have 40 hours (Indian calendar). Capacity for China is 0.88 FTE because they have 35 hours (China calendar ) Default calendar(Denmark) has 37 hours The above doesn't make sense if you want to simplify the allocation process. If we have 7 calendars(NL, CN , IN , DK , DE, UK, ES) how do we set the default calendar and how can we avoid not to check manually the capacity for each month / resource. Scanario: Have a team(20 resources) in 4 different locations(4 different calendars without exceptions) and you want to allocate(50%) of their time to a project within a timeline of 3 years. You basically don't know what 50% is so You have to manually check (hoover over ) on the capacity line for each resource for each month their available capacity and allocate accordingly to be in balance.This should be a simple task, but if we take only 1 Project we are talking about 36 month * 20 resources = 720 manual allocation. I do not think anyone wants to do that on a portfolio level. Please invite me for a short session where we can discuss this issue. At this point we cannot really use the calendars since is going to kill us in managing the allocations for 1000 resources on 150 projects. This scenario is not taking into consideration the calendar exceptions: If you add those on top, I don't know how anyone can manage this because the capacity for each month becomes a unique value. The above resource have other issues Days calculation (for China I get 20.13 days and for India I get 23 days) In reality, both resources work the same amount of days, they just work different hours per day. @Manuel Schneider can you please invite me for a short alignment? Any timeline for the percentage release? At this point it does not make any sense to use calendars. Best, Mihai
  7. Hi all, I would like to use this forum to share Meisterplan knowledge and best practices but also share findings, see where we can improve our planning and portfolio data analysis and more important Meisterplan ...etc. I have the below scenario: I have 2 resources in my Resource pool with 2 different calendars Default calendar with 40 h / week Danish Calendar with 35 h / week (comes with exceptions for public holidays and vacation - total of 30 days) If I allocate these 2 resources with different calendars to the same project (1 year length) and assign them 1 FTE for the entire project period it gives me 2088 hour / year for both of the resources. In this case, the amount of allocation hours / resource / year does not take into consideration the calendar. Can we receive an explanation on how we are suppose to use the Calendar? I attached 2 screenshots to visualize the issue in this scenario. The last resources have a different calendar all of them.
