Description of Staffing Timeline functionality.
Staffing Timeline is used to plan activities including resource allocation.
Planning a work of employees is one of the most important stages of each project. Every manager holding such a tool can easily plan a work of his employees on projects. Good planning of a work on the project will result in a better development of a company.
Staffing Timeline is an ideal tool for planning holidays for a company's employees.
Work on projects can be planned with precision to an hour or rounded to full days. When choosing the first option (detailed planning), the Working Hours (that can be set) come with help.
You can fix non-working days and take them on a Timeline. This functions is very useful because assigning a user on a project which needs to spend a given number of hours and to list non-working days that occur in the meantime, will not be taken into account, when calculating the end date of the project. You have complete freedom of setting non-working days - you can choose the global non-working days (which is set in the section Administration -> Non-working days) or only for a specific macro.
Result of a planning is a timeline on which they are graphically presented among all the planned activities. Timeline can be freely zoomed-in (eg. hourly zoom) and zoomed-out (eg. annual zoom). You can also view a history of previous entries. At any time you can track the workload of each activity - just hover the mouse pointer over an entry on the Timeline, you will see a hint informing about the current progress in percentage of a project accomplishment and a date of commencement and completion of the project.
The person who is adding a macro staffing timeline on a page can determine who can fully edit the contained data and who can only watch a Timeline.
You can export data from a Timeline to an Excel file with ".xslx" extension. Exported to an Excel, data can be used for later presentations. You can send generated excel to people who do not have access to the page with staffing timeline macro and show them results of your planning.
