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. Define workflow approval hierarchy - managing time

    It would be great to have the option to define a specific workflow approval hierarchy. As it is now, anyone with Manage Timesheet rights can approve anyone's time - which for us is too open. Ideally we would like to be able to define the approver for a particular resource or resource group. E.g. the HR staff's time is approved by the HR manager etc.

    Thank you for having made an awesome tool - powerful and intuitive!

  2. Override custom resource availability

    Some resources typically work a 4 day week, but from time to time they work the full 5 days (based on project needs). We would like to be able to set their default resource availability at 4 days, but over ride this when required by manually allocating hours to a non working day.

  3. Really need an option to remove " - General - 8hrs/day for 1 days". This information isn't needed for us, so a simple option in settings?

  5. Toggle between favorite scheduler settings

    I use the scheduler in a couple of different modes. Most of the time, I want to see a graphical representation of the reservation situation, but sometimes, I want to hide all reservation bars and just have a heatmap of availability (grouped rows + availability display => numbers).

    It would be great, if we could have the possibility to save a few preferred settings for the scheduler and then be able to quickly toggle between those settings. In other words, being able to with one button click toggle between, e.g. a heatmap and a visual representation.

  6. Filter scheduler by both resources AND unassigned work

    As shown in the video below, when trying to manage a large pipeline of project estimates, when you need to drag planned work onto actual named resources, the current interface is too cluttered to make this easy.

    It'd be ideal to be able to filter unassigned work categories as well as resources to drill down to the exact view of "what needs to be done" vs "people able to do it".

  8. Ability to view heat maps as percentages and hours

    We would like have the heat maps view the booking status as a percentage. i.e. Booked for 4 hours, show as 50% availabilty

  9. Add Outlook style contact list as common reference tool for team communications.

    Almost every project we create involves outside vendors and consultants. Each project has a unique contact list that are an integral part of the team. A team member should be able to add Hub project contacts for team reference and contact. A user should be able to initiate emails from the project contact list and the email should be recorded and archived in the project available to all team members.

  10. Feedback on the dashboard amendment

    New amendment at the dashboard shows the time allocation first in each row (e.g. 40 total hours in 11 days) before the project name - this actually hinders the overview of different project names across teammates. It might be better for users to choose to display the time allocation or the project name first in each project row

  11. Scheduler - Filter on Available or over allocated resources

    In the scheduler view it would be nice to have a filter (or toggle) allowing you to show only available or over booked resources for the time period displayed.

    This would be useful when trying to re-balance bookings across resources.

  12. Split a booking in to parts within one booking

    At present, if you break down a day's shift in to multiple projects, they don't overlap on the same row. This is very impractical when managing several resources. It would be great to see a feature where one booking can be split in to parts (e.g. break, lunch, other, etc with color coding) so that the interface continues to look intuitive and makes it easier for managers to visualize breakdowns for a resource at any given day.

  13. calendar viewing options

    I understand most of the world starts working on Monday, but it would be great to have the option to start our week on Sundays as well, as all of the GCC countries start on Sunday. This should be a viewing preference that is individually changed. I mention this because in our case, we have offices in Dubai (start Sunday) and Singapore (start Monday), and we don't want to change this globally. We need each of our employees to be able to control how they view their weeks.

  14. Resource Availability Report

    Need the ability to fix the resource names to left when scrolling to the right. Currently we work approximately 16 weeks ahead and it becomes extremely confusing trying to identify which resource is available and when.

  16. Allow me to request that a project is added to my timesheet

    When I start work on a new project, it's only later in the week when I log my time that I find I haven't had the appropriate project added to my timesheet so I can't log the time and need to email the administrator manually to request it (which also requires that I know who the administrator is).

    Instead, I'd (ideally) like to be able to pick the right project and request access to it without leaving the HubPlanner UI. Meanwhile the administrator receives an email about it which includes two action links/buttons - Approve/Reject - which do exactly as…

  17. "Effective utilisation" stat

    In reports, "available time" and "utilisation" are calculated as a ratio between available time and booked time.

    It would be great to have also an "effective utilisation" ratio based not on booking/available but on reported/available, to see on the past weeks who was unoccupied...

    Same thing in the timesheets : it's great to see how much time was declared in comparison of what was booked, but it would be great to have also "how much time was declared in comparison of available time for this ressource".
