The current functionality within BPMOnline for the Projects section is causing major problems for resource scheduling.
We are a professional services delivery company and have a number of engineers we sell their time to customers for installation and consultancy work.
When creating projects and the activities within BPM for our client delivery, we need to be able to clearly and efficiently see what resources are available. For example, if a customer needs 4 consecutive days for a particular service, we may have 8 engineers calendars we need to review to see who is available and when to allocate to this project and task.
The activity calendar when you add multiple users, displays all 8 users activities in the same colour, except for activities with certain priority or age. These may be red for example. Having all of the 8 engineers showing up as the same colour makes it impossible to determine who out of this 8 has such free time to allocate the task to.
User based colour coding on the activity calendar
When adding users, automatically give each a different colour border.
The current use of colour to indicate priority or past due, can be incorporated in another method; Title bar or text colour.
