What is a resource utilization chart?

The resource utilization chart is not your typical graph, it gives you a view of how balanced your team's work hours and free hours are. Here's what you will spot in this chart:

  • Color Code

    Work is within the available business hours. Depending on whether the bar for a selected date range is full or not, the person may have time to spare.

    The person's work hours go beyond the available business hours.

  • Task bars

    For each task, a horizontal task bar stretches across the duration of the task. You can slide the bars across dates to reschedule work or drag and drop them to reassign work to another user right from the chart.

  • Views

    Bar view- For each employee, horizontal bars represent how optimally occupied their schedule is with respect to the available business hours.

    Heatmap view- Heatmaps help visualize disconnected schedules better by showing how occupied a person is with respect to available business hours.
