Utilization Tracking > Capacity Utilization Graphs

The capacity utilization feature allows you to keep track how much work your resources have been assigned for any given time. The new Ganttic interface has so far only shown overall resource capacity utilization in the form of percentages.

Above every task, there is a colored line. Each line indicates how packed that period is (and not just a task) for a resource, by combining the 'Busy Time' of all the stacked tasks within that period.

Take a look at the screenshot above as an example. Resource 'ASUKA' has two tasks scheduled. The coloured graph tells us that the combined capacity of this resource during that period has gone over 101% (200%). Asuka herself or her employer would have to make adjustments so as to relieve her from an impossible work schedule.

The meaning of colors:

  • BLUE: 1% - 33%
  • GREEN: 34% - 66%
  • YELLOW: 67% - 100%
  • RED: 101% - ∞

Not every user needs the graph utilization feature. We have made it so that you can turn it on or off according to your needs. The colors and percentage ranges can be customized. 

To activate the graphs:

  1. Go to 'Settings' (upper right corner)
  2. Find 'Utilization' tab on the left
  3. Toggle the switch to turn it on or off
  4. Click 'Save' to save your settings
