Resource Allocation in BigTime

Display Task Start Date in Resource Allocation


It’s easy to see when a task starts in Resource Allocation: a green line on your Allocation Dashboard indicates the starting period for a given task.

In order for this line to appear, you need to add a start date on the task itself. This article will walk you through the process. 

First, we’ll add a task start date in the Task Editor. Then, we’ll look at the task start date in Resource Allocations.

Add a Task Start Date

  1. Click My Company...Project List from your navigation bar.
  2. Select a project from your Project List.
  3. Select the Tasks tab, and then click Editor.
  4. Click on the vertical trio of dots next to a task name and select Edit Task.

    This will cause a new window to pop up.
  5. Click the Budget/Dates tab on this window.

    This is where you need to enter your start and end dates.
  6. Click Save to save your work.
    Repeat this process as needed.
