The scheduler enables you to view documents in a calender. With the scheduler you can plan your resources, for example workorders for employees and equipment.
The calendar view of the scheduler
The time line view of the scheduler
You can create two types of scheduler views:
- The calender view shows a period with all planned documents. You can define the period by choosing from day, workweek, week or month.
- The time line groups all activities (documents) of a resource and shows this in a time line. You can choose the period from day, workweek, week or month.
