Posting date and quantity are shown for each Job Planning Line. Discrepancies between scheduled and actual usage are indicated in the VJS by according symbols or visual alerts on the basis of resources and the quantities they need for finishing certain tasks.
In the picture shown below, the posting date is indeed later than the planned start (red line and red flag in the table row) and the posted quantity is lesser than the planned one (downward pointing arrow next to the flag).
If there are no discrepancies, the line between posting date and Project Planning Line will be grey.
In combination, the options of time usage with the ones for the posting date can illustrate the following scenarios:
The task is finished using hours as scheduled and the posting date is earlier than the calculated end date.
The task is finished in time using hours as scheduled and the posting date is the same as the calculated end date
