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. Quarterly Recurrence

    We have lots of projects that recur quarterly. Is it possible to add the option to either have quarterly or a custom period?

  3. View Projects in date order

    Would be great if we could view the projects when on the scheduler to be viewed in order of start date.

  4. 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…

  5. Week numbers in addition to dates and months to the active experts view

    Currently it is not possible to display week numbers in the active experts view if the slot size is weeks. Instead it only shows days and month in the header. If I would be able to configure the week number visible, I would not have to use a separate calendar application aside the planner.

  6. Risk management function for projects

    Implement the risk management for projects including:


    • Risk name

    • Risk likelihood and consequence

    • Risk level (auto calculate using risk matrix)

    • Log date and resolved date

    • Mitigation actions.

  7. Assign category for each Project.

    It would be good to have a specific "Category" assigned for each project created. At the moment it shows all the list of custom categories created . Thanks.

  8. Custom rate per project role

    Some projects have multiple rates applied for the same resource - for example Project Management might be charged at a higher rate than Business Analysis - but the same person does both roles

    It would be handy to be able to create project roles and assign custom rates to each, and assign resources to each role (sometimes multiple resources to one role)

  9. 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.

  10. Dashboard Resources Utilisation - Next Month

    Currently it is possible to define a time frame only on the Project dashboard but not on the Resources one.

    I believe that it's a key feature the ability to use the dashboard to see the predicted utilisation not only for the current month but for the next one as well.

  12. 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.

  13. Simplified Time Sheet Entry/Remove Animations Option

    It would make time sheet entry MUCH faster to have a table view with no graph or animations. Just something really simple and fast with a "submit all" button that submits ALL the entries for the week.

  15. Bulk timesheet management options.

    Organisations with large teams who wish to onboard to HubPlanner are going to have a horrible, horrible time with the current set of timesheet features.


    • Time management is done on a week by week basis

    • The interface is collapsed by default and it takes several clicks to even view the editable time fields per project

    • Entering time takes several clicks / doesn't work with the tab button

    Proposal:
    - Manager functionality to enable monthly view of timesheets
    - Bulk "approve all" button
    - Bulk import facility for retrospective time import from other systems (critical for reporting!!)

  16. Audit log to identify who made a scheduling change

    The ability to be able to identify who made a booking change and when. This could act as a history of who scheduled, edited, or deleted a booking. Ideally this could be filtered/searched based on a project or resource.

  17. Overtime Rate

    If a resource is ulitised at an obscure time i.e Migration from 7pm to 12am or required to work over the weekend, we charge them a penalty rate. HubPlanner doesn't have the capability to indicate the work as overtime and therefore apply the penalty rate (base rate x 1.5%), flowing into billing so the client can see they were charged 8 hours at normal rate and 3 overtime hours at the penalty rate.
