The Visual Resource Viewer is the all-in-one resource view for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. You see the utilization of the resources by orders from Service, Assembly and Jobs. Moreover, we have added information about the resources' absences so that the overview of the resources' availability will get as complete as possible. At the same time, a capacity curve illustrates the resources' availability so that you recognize what your resources are currently working on and when. The VRV informs you on your resources' free capacities or whether they have a double assignment. The Visual Resource Viewer gives you total control over the resource usage in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
While Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central keeps all data in separate tables, the Visual Resource Viewer lets the planner grasp the resource allocations of the areas Service, Assembly, Jobs, and Absences at a glance. Moreover, the capacity curve indicates a resource's free capacities and overloads.
The capacity curve combines information on a resource's allocation and its availability. If, for instance, a task's duration is 10 hours, the capacity curve of a resource with an availability of 8 hours/day shows an overload - if it is calculated per day. In many cases, the planner regards a resource's availability by week or even by month. That is why the VRV lets you select wether you do the capacity calculation either by day, week or month. The curve will aggregate the occupancy on the selected period.
The Visual Resource Viewer offers lots of options that make navigating in the planning board very easy: jump to the time now line with one cklick, zoom into a period by mousewheel, jump back to your starting position and much more.
The VRV lives within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Clicking an order or a resource directly brings you to the according card where you can make and save your changes.
Either enter a fixed starting and end date for seeing the resources and their orders within this time frame or specify a time range around the current dates.
