Resource events and schedules

Schedules classify time as work time and non-work time and can be associated with resources and with projects.

The My Calendar module shows the user's work schedule and non-work time.

When a resource manager makes an allocation, the following takes place automatically:

  • The schedule associated with the specified resource is analyzed.
  • The allocation type changes to Hard and calendar events are created for individual resources within the user's schedule. The hours are spread evenly across the duration of the allocation period.

Use the Calendar Event Duration property to control the default minimum unit for an event. See Resource Management properties for examples.

Note: Over-allocation is allowed, starting with the Geneva release. However, no more than 24 hours can be allocated to a user during a given day. See Resource allocation for more information.
