Working with the schedule in the VJS

Zooming and scrolling

The VJS offers various options of adjusting the size of your working area.

Adjust the time scale

Increase/reduce time scale solution

Depending on how much detail or summary is required, you can either increase or reduce the time scale solution by

  • mouse wheel within the time scale
  • <Shift> + mouse wheel outside the time scale

vjs_timescale_solution

Show projects of the current timescale only

vjs_filter_to_timescale

The chart gets adjusted to the current timescale showing only projects fitting into this range thus reducing the number of displayed bars.

Show projects of a certain timespan only

Click the according icon to show either

  • all projects of your current workdate
  • all projects within a week starting from the current workdate
  • all projects of a month starting from the current workdate
vjs_calendar_icons

Return to default time range

vps_fit_into_view

The timescale gets either minimized or maximized so that the chart shows the complete timespan as defined in the “Settings” dialog.

Enlarge/reduce diagram

Zoom the diagram in or out by <Ctrl> + mouse wheel.

vjs_enlarge_diagram

Adjust the numeric scale of the histogram

If you wish to modify the resolution of the numeric scale in the histogram, place the mouse cursor on the numeric scale and drag it either upward (enlarging) or downward (reducing).

vjs_numeric_scale

Adjust the height of the histogram

Accordingly, you can modify the height of the histogram. Drag the horizontal splitter bar between histogram and table/diagram area upward or downward

vjs_enlarge_histogram

Adjust the width ratio between table and diagram

You can modify the width ratio between the table and the diagram by moving the vertical splitter bar between them.

vjs_width_ratio

Shift timescale

Bring another section of your timescale into view by grabbing the timescale by mouse and shifting it.
