Visual Scheduling Tips & Tricks

The Creation Mode

The creation mode allows to either allocate a resource to a job task or an operation to a resource

Allocate a resource to a job task

By selecting “Toggle Creation Mode” in the Job View (by clicking the "View" item of the "Actions" menu), the VJS displays a list with your resources. You can interactively allocate a resource by dragging it from the list to the chart, thus creating a new job planning line. An orange “phantom” bar and an info window indicate where and when the new job planning line will be placed if you release the mouse button.

VJS_assign resource to task

Assign an operation to a resource

By selecting “Toggle Creation Mode” in the Resource View (by clicking the "View" item of the "Actions" menu), the VJS displays a list with all your jobs, job planning lines and job tasks. You can interactively allocate a job task to a resource by dragging it from the list to the chart. An orange “phantom” bar and an info window indicate where and when the new job planning line will be placed if you release the mouse button.
