Manage the resource capability and work load more efficiently with the visual resources overview. It integrates both project work packages from InLoox PM and appointments from the Microsoft Exchange free/busy service. This way, you always have an instant and complete overview of all project resources – be it team members, rooms, or tools.
The resource overview loads all resources system-wide.
In Outlook 2003/2007 click Extras in the InLoox PM Toolbar and choose Resources from the list.
You can also load resources for a specific project or for the specific planning element. For more information, see Call up and manage resources.
Remove a resource On the Start tab, in the Resources group, click Remove Resource to delete the selected resource from the view. Use this feature to always hide resources despite of the filter settings.
Right-click the resource list in the upper left part. Select Display deleted resource(s) to display them again.
Define time frames On the Start tab, in the Current view group, click Select Duration. Choose from the drop-down list between Today, Week, Month and Year.
All resources that are not occupied during the defined period are hidden. Use the button Add resources to always display resources with whom you work often, regardless of the date settings.
Print resources On the Start tab, in the Current view group, click Print Overview or Load Chart to start the quick print feature of the resources.
For more information about printing, see General features and printing of the project list, in the Print in the project list section.
The context menu provides you with almost all basic features that can also be found on the InLoox PM Ribbon, namely Add Resources, Delete Resources, Reset View, Show Exchange Calendar, Show Workload Labels and Show Completed Activities. It also provides features of the workload diagram, like Expand and Collapse All Groups, Show Details. Right-click in the resource list or the workload chart to open the context menu.
