Understanding the schedule and visual alerts in the VPS

Capacity information

In the VPS, you can show a capacity curve in the Capacity View, to see free and exceeded capacities, a red box indicating an overload:

Capacity calculation by either day, week, or month

The capacity curve combines information on a resource's allocation and its availability. If, for instance, a task's duration is 10 hours,  the capacity curve of a resource with an availability of 8 hours/day shows an overload - if it is calculated per day. In many cases, the planner regards a resource's availability by week or even by month. That is why the VPS lets you select wether you do the capacity calculation either by day, week or month. The curve will aggregate the occupancy on the selected period.
