    Filtering by Resource Skills

    @Manuel Schneider many thanks for your response, to my query and look forward to having the option to select specifically based on skills only, as skills can be across multiple roles and in a fast moving and large resource pool this would be significantly beneficial, and with the identification of future resource needs (interim and long-term). The option re roles is very useful and the ability to staff and replace once a resource is identified from the role group is a good function. kind regards
  2. Hi Manuel, many thanks for your response. We are aware of the views that Meisterplan currently provides but wish to view projects in a horizontal view, where currently named resources or types are viewed. The view currently is varying shades of greeen and red, for over allocation, whcih is useful however this requires the user to hover over to establish what the green is representing and on a case by case basis not as a group so to view a holistic view in the lower screen. When viewing the top part also you are unable to view holistically, especially when a team of resources are assigned. A gantt chart tyle view is a very useful to visulise what work is scheduled and within a specific set day or period and enable an easy way to view start and end dates of a project in one simple view. In addition, who is working on each task, length, interdependencies on other projects, in particular as a result of resource availability and overlaps. Lastly this view can aid in PPM discussions and enable improved collaborative working. During an initial customer presentation the gantt view was shown as being on the roadmap for Meisterplan is this no longer the case - do you know? kind regards Vicky
  3. Within a typical resource pool there are multiple skills, competencies and capabilities which need to be collated into a single source and then used to identify resources for projects. Not requesting a named resource but for a resource with certain skills (especially when a large resource pool is available) is the long-term goal. Within Meisterplan filtering is only possible by 1 skill at a time (even though multiple skills per resource are stored in Meisterplan), however, when more than 1 skill is required the identification of resources becomes manual. Linkied to the 'Resource Management View - Gantt' the identification of impact on projects by moving resources, with identified skills, competencies and capabilities will be easier.
  4. In the 'Resources View' section find it difficult to establish / view what resources are working on easily without having to move the mouse over each allocation and unable to view project impact when moving timelines / milestones / dependencies. Multiple projects have interdependencies on other projects, in particular as a result of resource availability. A gantt chart tyle view is a very useful to visulise what work is scheduled and within a specific set day or period and enable an easy way to view start and end dates of a project in one simple view. In addition, who is working on each task, length, interdependencies on other projects, in particular as a result of resource availability and overlaps. Lastly this view can aid in PPM discussions and enable improved collaborative working.
