Tasks > Concurrent Tasks and Utilization Graphs
Sometimes people need to work on multiple tasks within the same time period. Ganttic allows you to schedule multiple tasks to one resource. These concurrent tasks can be scheduled fully or partially for the same time period.
Must-know about this feature
Please note that you have to manually adjust the utilization of concurrent tasks since the default utilization percentage is 100.
Schedule a concurrent task
Alternatively, you can make one of the tasks shorter or drag and drop it to another date to avoid overlapping. Research has shown we can multitask anyway.
- Add a task to the same resource line where you already have some tasksThis will add a concurrent task to the Gantt chart area.
- Give the task a title and assign a project to it, and click on 'Save'Like you would normally do when adding a new task.Since both tasks are automatically full-time (100%) ones, the utilization graph indicates (red) that the resource is overloaded in the area where the two tasks overlap.
- Adjust the utilization of each taskSet the desired utilization for both of the tasks and click on 'Save' once you are done.
