Resource Scheduling Swimlanes
We’ve extended the timescales available on DayBack’s pivot list view so that you can schedule by the week and by the day. The new options let you view up to 23 weeks at a time–that’s nearly six months.
In the screenshot above, most appointments take a whole week to complete. But some items just take a few days. We’ve added a formula field to the appointment to note if its lasting all week, or starting mid-week. (Here is that formula if you’d like to add this to your object(s) too.)
Importantly, schedulers can see vacations and travel on the same view where they’re assigning resources. Customers will often map the custom objects they’re using for vacations and PTO as additional calendars so they can see a complete picture of their team’s availability at once.
Other Long-Term Views
You’ve always been able to see long timescales on DayBack’s Horizon view (below) where you can look at several years at a time. However, the Pivot List view is better at showing gaps in your schedule.
Horizon is better at showing the relationships between projects over time. Horizon is also ideal when you’d like your swimlanes to be something besides “resources.” Horizon lets you break out your schedule by any field.
