IntroductionThere isn't a one shoe fits all solution to resource planning. Every single team is using different approaches even if they are using the same resource planning tool. Some of you like to plan specific daily assignments for each resource. Some of you just need to book resources for projects to know who is available and who isn't. While planning resources for some projects you really need to get in there and do the dirty work, for other projects you can plan general tasks. Sometimes you need the bird's-eye view. Sometimes you need to zoom in. That's why navigating in a Gantt chart based resource planning tool's timeline should be easy. And in Ganttic, it really is.
