Adding Resources


Introduction

Adding Resources is the first step to setting up your plan any Resource planning tool. It is the core feature that activates everything else in your planner. With 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 on Resources' utilization and which Resources are free to take on more assignments.
