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. Notifications only when changes are made by others

    Each user would only receive a notification when there is a change to that user's schedule, and that change is made by someone other than that user. Basically, if you are making changes to your own schedule, you should not receive a notification.

  2. From timesheet view add tooltip explanation of what the project is about

    Within the users timesheet view be nice to add a tooltip detailed explanation of what the project is about. Maybe linked from the notes or the custom field.

  3. Add field for Activity Title when creating a booking.

    It would be helpful if there was an option to add a title when a booking is created. Currently, you can only edit the title of each booking after the booking has been created - either with the right click menu or the edit feature in the toolbar. The title cannot be changed in the booking window itself.

  4. Be admins of specific resource groups

    It would be great if you could be an admin solely of a specific resource group. This is so that people dont have to view data of other teams (resource groups) and only have access to what their team is doing.

  5. Sub groups should take into account overlapping

    Group counts should only include "distinct" users instead of the count of users in the group plus the count of users in the sub-groups.

  6. Keep resource request notes visible in booking once the request is approved.

    When submitting a resource request and adding a note to it, it is saved successfully and visible to the request approver. Once the approver approves the request, the ensuing booking does not show the request note anymore and that way information is lost between the request and the actual booking. Maybe the request note should remain visible in the booking or be simply copied over to the booking notes section or something else.

    Thanks!

  7. Auto filling in sequential order of Unique Project Code/ID Field

    It would be good for the unique number in the project options menu to be auto populated, therefore anytime a new project was entered, the unique number would be auto-created. If the user could have some flexibility in defining the sequential numbering system, would be a plus.

  8. Single Sign On (SAML) for VMware Workspace ONE (Identity Manager)

    I would really like to see a Single Sign On (SSO) + SAML for the integration between Hubplanner and Workspace ONE (Identity Manager).

  9. 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.

  10. Ability to make custom fields mandatory when making a resource booking

    When adding a resource booking we have some custom fields that we have created however it is not possible to make them mandatory therefore users are not completing them. We would like the ability to flag a custom field as manadatory with validation when using the Update button

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. Add working hours to the project

    For small, multiple projects with different working hours, would be great to be able to add working hours when setting up a project rather than having to add every time you assign an resource

  14. 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.

  15. Request resource from WITHIN the Scheduler view instead of going to Request screen

    While in Active Resources view in the scheduler, as we are assessing the Unassigned Work needs…when we “find” a resource that might fit the criteria it would be GREAT to be able to request a resource from THIS view. To have to go to the Top Ribbon to request a resource we need in scheduler view is kinda a drag…

    We need “request resource” to try to fulfill the NEED. A la, one of the options of how to handle an "unassigned task" in addition to "reassign booking" there would be a "request resource" that would automatically go to their…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
