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. Export data to Microsoft Power BI or Tableau for reporting

    It would be good if HubPlanner could automatically feed standard reporting tools like Tableau or Power BI

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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

  7. 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…

  8. Ability to attach a file (PDF) to a timesheet for approval.

    In order for us to expand the use of hubplanner, we need the ability to attache a file to a time sheet. For example we use door times which can be included with hours worked

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Convert overhours to time-off

    In our team, over-hours are not paid out but are converted into time-off. I would really like to see the possibility to convert over-hours into hours that a team member can request as time-off. This time-off should appear together with submitting a vacation request.

  14. I would like to see a resource contention resolver algorithm

    I would like to see a resource contention resolver algorithm that allows for resource capabilities to be defined and assigned to each resource and then have hub that lets me see not only what my contentions are but recommendations for would is same skill and who's capacity would allow them to be used instead of the person that is over allocated.

    We have many skillsets and lots of projects. It is very hard to review the totality of the projects with the available resources.

  15. 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!

  16. improved timeline export

    Would like to export the timeline for a whole project, not just what's visible on the screen - and also in an editable format, such as AI or PDF. This way we wouldn't have to duplicate in another program to be able to send a basic version to a client for agreement.

  17. 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.

  20. 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…
