  1. Possibility to divide project into areas/streams and to book resources within those

    For big projects, that contains few modules/areas/streams it would be great to have an option to somehow divide it into groups. Then it should be possible to create bookings within this project within particular group. E.g. I have a project, where I need 5 people for module no 1, 7 people for module no 2 and 3 people for module no 3. This is one project, with one timeline and one PM. Currently all those 15 people are mixed - I would like to see them grouped per module.

    • Define Budget and Cost Rate per Role on same Project

      In our business resources work in different roles with different rates on the same project. We are able to define the billing rate per resource, however, for each role a different (hourly) budget applies which we currently cannot replicate. See the following Example:

      - Project A: Role 1 -> Budget=24h, Daily Rate $1.000
      - Project A: Role 2 -> Budget=64h, Daily Rate $1.250

      Currently we have to create two sub-projects for Role 1 und Role 2 to be able to report and monitor the budget per role separately.

      Will there be an update in the future releases so that we…

      • Custom fields in scheduler context drop-down menu

        Option to have custom fields show up on the scheduler selection context menu so one could easily choose custom field options to apply to the booking selection. Similar to the Booking Category selection option that already exists. This would allow us to customize the booking selection based on our custom fields.

        • reason for rejection

          when you reject a line in timecards, you currently don't have the in-line option to provide a reason that line was rejected. the supervisor needs to communicate that to the employee separately. if there is a line to provide reason for rejection, that would streamline the communication and time sheet adjustment.

          • Future scheduled hours.

            When viewing a Project's booking, adjacent to "Sheduled hours" and "Actual" there should also be a sum of hours "Scheduled from today" ("Future scheduled hours").

            The future is actually "all that matters" and help us not to navigate with the rear window. This allows us to have intelligent discussions with the project teams if there are enough hours planned in the future to complete the project, or if the planning is unrealistic, thus greatly improving the accuracy of the planning. For this to work, the information needs to be available and can't be hidden or hard-to-access.

            • When using Vacations extension, to block a resource from changing his already approved vacations, if that resource has allocation permission

              We are currently implementing the Vacation Extensions and we checked that the Team that have self allocation permissions can also edit own Approved Vacation days. In order to assure that the planned and approved vacation days are maintained we need to have those days 'locked' and allow changes via the established approval workflow, thus keeping the Team members self allocation for projects

              • Notification to resource when assigned to a project and booked / booking changed

                It could be fantastic if there could be an option to notify a resource when he/she is assigned to a project. Similar when the resource is booked or a booking has changed. It could be a checkbox on/off functionality and the notification could be e-mail.

                • Milestones Report

                  It would be great to pull a list of all Milestones across projects. This would allow my team to look at all upcoming client meetings/events that we categorize under milestones.

                  Thank you!

                  • Public Holidays per Country / User

                    I work for a global company and managing teams in different countries. We need to have Public Holidays specifically for each country and not all grouped together. At the moment it is showing I have so many public holidays (Hong Kong, Singapore and London)! Great as i dont need to work much now. ;0) Please make specific for each person in a company.

                    • Prevent Project bookings if person is 100% allocated to an Event

                      Make Events work like Company Holidays for individuals: if a resource is allocated to an Event at 100%, the project booking should skip over the Event day and not add additional hours to the Resource's booking, just as it would on a Company Holiday. If we've flagged that someone is out sick or on vacation or otherwise not available, we shouldn't be able to book them on a project.

                      • Intelligent bookings.

                        Intelligent booking. When booking for instance 200h:s between two dates, the booking should behave intelligently and spread out the 200h:s, but not overbook the resource if he/she is already booked on other work. So the behaviour should be "even out the load, but take current bookings in account and adjust so the resource is not overbooked".

                        An alternative way of implementing this is to have an option "don't allow overbooking" or "Use intelligent booking" that would make all scheduling of bookings take in account what's already planned on resources and adjust so the resource isn't allowed to be overbooked.

                          • Customizable Project Dashboard

                            I would like to create a custom project dashboard which shows me the specific data points I need. Much of the info in the current layout is not useful to us. It would be much better if I could choose which dashboard widgets to include, and to potentially create my own, maybe a custom widget builder similar to the custom report builder.
                            To check on project health right now, I have to look at the single project scheduler page, and also run a custom report of budgeted hours, budgeted spend, actual hours, and actual spend. This going back and forth…

                                    Hi- Our team would LOVE to see a way to save timesheet views week over week including typical projects AND booking categories. Right now we can do a work around to save a project view, however booking categories default. This used to be available in our previous time tracking system and saved a lot of time.

                                    • Sorting capability for Account Setup

                                      It would be nice if under the Account Setup you could sort by the different category headers. ie organise milestones by date or project etc.

                                      • Google Single Sign On (Google Suite)

                                        We are users of Google Suite. For a lot of online services, logging in with google credentials gives us a great single place to manage all users, and we can control factors such as MFA centrally.

                                        Having a domain-specific google suite integration (all users from a domain can sign in) would be fantastic for our company, to avoid keeping multiple sets of users and user management around the place.

                                        • Project time per day/month/week in the scheduler view

                                          It would be beneficial to be able to see the total scheduled time for a project in the scheduler view when a project is selected - similar to the total in the resource view (coloured bar). This will make it possible to see how much time is scheduled for each project in a specified timeframe (day/month/week). Currently it only shows the total scheduled time.
