Warning The division and team functionality is only available in InLoox 9 Enterprise Server or in InLoox now! Enterprise.
If you are able to choose from a multitude of resources the divisions and teams view helps you to keep a better overview.
If you want to assign a task to a resource from a specific division, please follow these steps:
You can expand the division structure by clicking on the black arrow in front of the division icon to see all resources that belong to that division.
Besides the divisions that the InLoox Administrator sets for the entire project platform, you can create your own teams in InLoox and track their workload. The team functionality helps you to put resources together across divisions.
Please follow these steps to create a team in InLoox:
In the Divisions and Teams side panel, click on the plus symbol left of Add Team. A new team will appear below.
Now you can drag and drop resources from your team onto the respective tasks.
Note The new team is now available in each of your InLoox projects, but it is not available system-wide – meaning that your colleagues won’t be able to use the team. Every user can create his or her own teams.
