Resources > Adding Resources

Adding resources is the first step to setting up your plan in Ganttic. It is the core feature that activates everything else in your planner.

Resources could be anything from your staff, vehicles, equipment, locations and more. From Ganttic's resources-first planning approach, you are able to see how work is distributed across your resources. This allows you to keep an eye of which resources might be overworked and which resources are free to take on more assignments.
