Drag and Drop Resource Loading report features
Idea shared by Nicole Cook - December 14, 2016 at 6:20 PM
Under Consideration
It would be great to add a drag and drop feature in to
resource loading report.

Then you could move the estimated hours for an ongoing task to next week if
you were not planning to work on it this week.

That would save a lot of minor tweaks in projects, and help manage resource loading when working on many small projects that have a long duration.

Hi Nicole,
 
I like the idea and have added it to the list we review for features to implement. Not sure about the amount of effort but I think it would be useful.
 
I did come up with a workflow that could save a few clicks to achieve almost the same thing:
  1. First up, duplicate EP in another browser window. Set them up side by side on your monitor.
  2. Run the Resource loading report with the filters you need in one tab.
  3. Open the Activity Center to show the same projects and activities. Could save a View if it's something that you do frequently. E.g. I have a saved viewed for each of the Implementation Consultant's projects in my EP.
  4. Open up the Gantt chart in the Activity Center.
  5. Identify the Activity you want to reposition in the Resource Loading Report.
  6. Use the Gantt view to move it.
  7. Repeat.
  8. Refresh report by clicking "Apply" once in a while to see the new loading,
Not something you'll want to do on a laptop, but I found it pretty useful on my monitor (23" or so).
 
Hope this helps.
 
Steve.
