Task time

by tgarnier June 8, 2009

How to assign a duration to the task in hours or days?


When you affect a length to a task, PlanningPME will calculate cleverly the ending date taking into account your resources slots : slots and non working days. You can also indicate a break.
How to use task time feature?

First of all, create a task on your schedule. The “task” window then appears.


Careful! A task with a duration can only be assigned to one resource.
NB: Ticking on "All day" you can enter a length in days.
Ticking off "All day" you can enter a length in hours.

Let's see this task management feature with a practical example


We are going to assign a 4 days length task to the resource « Pedro ».


PlanningPME is going to take into account non-worked days such as Saturday and Sunday on this example. So, the task will end the 9th of August!

 

This function is interesting when you know the length of your task but not the ending date.

Recurring task

by tgarnier June 6, 2009

How to create a recurring task on your planning?

Some tasks have to be done in a recurrent way. To avoid creating it several times, we implemented a recurrence function. The function “Recurrence” will help you in your tasks management as monthly meetings, yearly appointments…This is another possibility that makes this software so user-friendly.

When creating a task, in the window “Task”, click on the button “Recurrence”.

The following window appears:

 

 And here is the visualization on the schedule:


You can delete an occurrence of a periodical task or delete all the series. To do so, select the task and right click on the mouse.
Then, click on « Delete ».

If you want, you can get off a task from its series either to:
- Move it 
- Activate a reminder only on this task...

You can extract several tasks from the recurrence: it is useful when a person is off. To do so, click right on the resource and select "Get off the recurrence". Select the period during which you want to get off the tasks from the recurrence.

Careful: The period of time displayed on the screen must include the period during which the resource is off.

 
Tasks are then independent and you can reassign them to other resources.
