Resource Management View - Gantt View

Recommended Posts

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.

Dear @Vicky.Thompson,

Thanks for your contribution! Good to hear that the Gantt in Meisterplan helps you scheduling projects. I agree that triggering necessary discussions and decisions is one of the key purposes of Meisterplan.

Concerning the resource section: as soon as you select a resource, the project list is filtered on those projects that the person is working on. This is the quickest way to find out “who does what”. By the way, this also works the other way round. Selecting a project automatically reduces the resource view to people scheduled on the selected project.

Does that help you?

Regards

Manuel

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.

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
