Overlay schedules from diffrent plans
In schedule view you should be able to open different plans and have the same functionality as outlook overlay calendars i.e. enabling overlay of schedules, from different plans. Colours of the tasks should match the plan’s icon colour and you should still retain filter controls at the same level as when you open current schedules.
Definitely! We have different channels and plans for various aspects of one overarching project and we need to see where we're going to have bottlenecks in resourcing between the different plans and overlaying the plans would help with this.
I agree, this is a critical component for our organization also. It needs to integrate easier with Outlook too; as outlook is currently the only way to view the schedules on a mobile app. Our business is field based. I need to be able to book work from the field as requests roll in in real time. Each "plan" for us represents a customers asset that we work on. I would prefer to see the outlook calender based on groups instead of teams as most of our plans are nested under one "group".
I agree. Having a birds eye view of all project calendars in an overlay view is critical to making planner usable. As a manager, you need to be able to see how much time is booked and available to plan for new projects.
