In GanttPRO Gantt chart software, there is a Resource workload feature. As soon as you add resources to your project, they will appear at the bottom of your screen in a special window.
To assign a task to your resources, choose the needed task and go to the Assigned column in your project grid. In case it is switched off, click on the + sign at the right upper corner of the grid, and tick the box.
All team members and resources fall into three types: a labour resource, a material resource, and a resource with a fixed cost. The material resource and the resource with a fixed cost will not be shown in the Resource workload window.
In the project grid, you will be able to manage all your resources. In the workload window, all the changes will be automatically reflected. Thus, you will be able to see how your resources are loaded with work: who is overloaded or, vice versa, underperforms. Also, you can choose to show the workload per tasks or per hours.
For your convenience, tasks can be depicted in three different colours.
– A blue one shows that a resource is underperforming.
– A green one shows that a resource is loaded in an optimal way.
– A red one shows that a resource is overloaded.
Note: when you add a new task, you set its duration. By default, the estimation value is set as 0. In this case, regardless of their number, all added resources will get the same duration value. But if you set the estimation value beforehand, it will be divided equally between all the added resources. For example, the estimation value of 10 will be divided into 5 and 5 for 2 resources, into 3,33, 3.33, and 3.33 for 3 resources, etc.
