This month we’ve added more improvements to Synergy’s resourcing capabilities, so you can have greater customisation options and more information available at your fingertips when it’s time to resource a project.
Edit your staff Utilisation Threshold
Listening to your feedback, we’ve introduced the ability to update the Utilisation Threshold for your staff resourcing, giving you the ability to customise the percentage at which your team’s utilisation appears over or underutilised. This means you have greater flexibility and can more accurately track your project workload when resourcing from the Planning Boards. Changing the utilisation percentage will affect all staff in your organisation.
Greater resourcing insights with Staff Unavailability
When it comes to resourcing a project, you need as much information as possible to make the right decisions about who to assign where. We’ve now added insights on your staff unavailability directly into the Planning Boards so you can see if a staff member is unavailable, based on their scheduled leave within the next 90 days.
You can see this appear as tooltips on the Staff action panes from the Resource Planning Board and Project Schedule, and from the other Planning Boards you’ll see it in the Stage Resourcing and Customise Resource areas.
