Sorting order

Within a category, jobs and their belonging tasks are sorted in ascending numerical order.

Histograms

A histogram below the Gantt chart displays the workload of the corresponding resource. When moving the mouse onto a resource group or a resource, its capacity load will be visualized in the histogram. The sections highlighted in red indicate a capacity problem at the according resource (in this case „Joe Peters”) that ought to be solved by rescheduling
