Resource Time Fulfillment Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

Is there anyway of allocating a required time unit that a resource (staff) must fulfil. At the moment when putting in tasks my 'Staff' resources are always at 100%, but this figure is derived from the amount of tasks, not against the unit of time you have to allocate to them.

I.e. a milestone is 4 weeks and I need to ensure everyone is tasked up for the whole of the 4 weeks, and I would like Omniplan to flag when they are not.

At the moment, I have gaps in people's work schedules because of dependencies etc. and I have to look in detail to find these and there is no flag marking these areas out.


In the resource view, you can turn on the resource load graph. This will show green when a resource is fully booked, blue when they've got less than a full load, and pink when they're overloaded. You can turn this on by choosing "Show Resource Allocations" in the View menu, or clicking the icon shown in the attached screenshot.
