What's Next for Hub Planner?

Below you can help shape the functionality of Hub Planner by suggesting your idea. We want to make sure we are listening to the users of Hub Planner and incorporating your Feedback within our Project Roadmap.

  1. Total cost and effort per project phase

    We need to use Hub Planner for defining the estimated cost and effort per phase in our proposals. Currently it is only possible to see the total effort for the project or to manually add the total project budget. I'd like the ability to link each schedule booking to a defined project phase and then see the total effort and total estimated cost (based on the hourly resource rates) for each proposed phase. We would then use this in a proposal and once a customer has approved the project, we'll report against it. Currently a project phase cannot be reported…

  2. Mark time entries (and bookings) as billable or non-billable

    A check box in both a booking and time entries to mark them as billable or non-billable. In the case of the booking, the resoure will know if it is billable or not. In the case of time entries, one can run a report (say weekly) to find all billable time and accounts can issue invoices accordingly.

  3. If user is assigned to work on more than one project, the width of the row should depend on the hours scheduled for the project.

    If user is assigned to work on more than one project, it would be very useful to have it visible the percentage of the time spent on each project: 4h on Project1, 2h on Project2, 1h on Project3, 1h on Project4. The width of the row should depend on the hours scheduled for the project.

  4. Include notes in the description of the iCalendar item

    It would be very useful to include any note (if present) in the description of the iCalendar booking, so the resources can see any additional information about the booking without the need to ask for further clarifications.

  5. Automatic override of booking if Vacation is entered

    Sometimes our employees take one day off in the middle of a project. If we've booked them for three months, we need to break the booking to go around the project.

    It's a little thing but it would be great that if a booking is on the same day as a vacation, the vacation overrides the booking and that day is not counted.

  6. 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 can define…

  7. Moving multiple bookings

    An issue which is frequently being raised by system users is that they are unable to move multiple bookings at one time. Projects are quite often pushed back which means that all of the bookings which have been created for that booking may need to be moved forward several weeks/months. The only way I am aware of is doing this currently is by holding ctrl and selecting the multiple bookings you wish to move – but with this it is difficult to see which bookings you have selected and can be quite fiddly - causing problems with the existing bookings. …

  13. Schedule automatic creation of reports

    In the previous CRM we used we could "schedule" the automatic creation of reports. For example, on the 1st of the month run a specific report and email the results to desired people. It would be nice to have that.

  15. Annual Leave - Visibility for the Team

    The new annual leave tracker is a great feature but I would like to add the possibility of every team member seeing the other holidays of his team members booked. It will save them time requesting time off when they know they are unlikely to get it when their colleague 'buddy' is already marked as being away. This is a feature available for admins but not for team members.

  17. Project Cost Forecast

    I'd like to be able to create a project forecast which is independent from the resource hourly rate. I want to be able to show how the costs will be applied over the duration of the project, monthly. There are other costs beyond resources that I want to be able to factor into the project total cost (i.e. vendor costs etc).

    Ultimately, I would like to be able to compare my monthly forecast vs the project budget vs the actual costs. Being able to add all of these individual financial attributes gives me a more complete picture of how my…

  18. Autosync scheduler between different users

    The scheduler should always be up-to-date for all users. If two persons are viewing the scheduler at the same time and the first makes a change, then the change should immediately be visible for the second user as well without having to refresh.
