Begin Scheduling

Schedule and allocate people to projects from a single view

Scheduling is the place to plan out, and allocate your people to projects. We have two views, but they're basically doing the same. People, bases the view on people. Projects, bases the view on projects. This makes it possible to flip the schedule as you prefer. Allocate people to projects, or allocate projects to people.

We focus on bringing you the perfect bird's-eye view to give you a better perspective. Our Quick Book feature lets you find available people, with the matching skill set, and book them in a matter of seconds.

Additionally, you can of course always see if any people are over- or under allocated from the People view. Or, from the flipped view, Projects view, see if any of your projects have too many or too few resources allocated. Just click the item and adjust.
