  • Filters according to teams or specializations.
  • Filters with "planned" project in order to see whether you can contract new jobs.

Resources allocation in the future

In the left part of the screen you see tasks assigned to people (according to the applied filter), grouped by people. Number in the bracket is estimated time to complete the task.

Estimated time is allocated into the days from the due date backwards.

Easy Redmine resource management people tasks

If the time estimate for the taks is 20 hours and due date is 3. 10. - then allocation is as follows: 3. 10. - 8 hours, 2. 10. - 0 hours since it is weekend and these are skipped, 1. 10. - 0 hours, 30. 9. - 8 hours and 29. 9. - 4 hours = 20 hours in total.

Balancing the Resources

The sum of allocated time to particular user is shown in his name row. If it is red, user is overloaded - there is more time allocated than he can actually work, since work capacity can be set in your profile.

Easy Redmine resource management user over loadedIn order to balance work load of particular user, you can drag & drop tasks in time and even among users - reassign them.

As you drop the task, sum of allocated time is automatically recalculated and you see what is the total per day workload.Easy Redmine resources balancedOnce you are satisfied with the plan - work load is ballanced for all the users - you can save setting by clicking on "save changes" - all the affected task are updated now and notifications are sent do particular users.

You can also "Undo unsaved changes" to get back to starting point.

If you want to change allocation of estimated time per day on particular task, just double click on the task and rewrite time estimate in particular day.

It can afterwards look like this - you simply set that a user is supposed to allocated 2 hours per day to particular task, where total estimated time is for example 8 hours.
