INTRODUCTION

The properties of an event are accessible through a:

  • Right-Click on an event > Modify.
  • Left-Click on an event > Ctrl+E.

The following window will appear:

DATES BLOCK

Dates details:

  • An event type can be:
    • Daily.
    • Half-daily.
    • Hourly.
  • A Start date (The format is dd/mm/yyyy with UK language or mm/dd/yyyy with US language).
  • An End date (Same as the Start date format).
  • A Duration, which is the difference between the end and the beginning of the event. (cf. duration).
  • The check box Working which defines if the event is working or not.

The maximum duration of an event is 20000 days.

ACHIEVEMENT BLOCK

A progress bar determines the percentage of achievement. It runs from 0% to 100%.

The check box Automatic allows to automate the achievement of the event.

According to the automatic or manual realization mode, the state of the event can be:

Mode Progress state Percentage of realization Start date of the event
Automatic Planned equals to 0%
Ongoing between 0% (excluded) and 100%
Completed equals to 100%
Manual Planned equals to 0 % superior to the current date (in the future)
Ongoing equals to 0 % superior to the current date (in the future)
Urgent between 0% (included) and 100% inferior to the current date (in the past)
Completed equals to 100 %

RESOURCES BLOCK

The list of the resources is visible and modifiable. The visible resources belong to the existing dimensions in events hierarchy conform to the event configuration.

Each resource is represented by:

  • Icon.
  • Color.
  • Text corresponding to the identification headings.

cf. Resource

LOAD BLOCK

The Load exists in each event.

This load requires the choice of a load type which can be:

  • Automatic.
  • In day per day.
  • In hours per day.
  • In hours per hour.
  • In days.
  • In hours.
  • In percentage.

Three values are taken by the event:

  • Value: The Value according to the type which was defined above.
  • In hours: The conversion in hours of the load.
  • In days: The conversion in days of the load.

FORM BLOCK

This list allows to eventually choose a form associated to the event.

If a form is selected, a form tab appears into the properties window of the event.

This tab allows to view and modify the values of the headings of the form associated to the event.

This tab does not appear if the event has no form.

cf. Form

VALUATIONS BLOCK

This tab allows to view and modify the valuation items associated to an event.

It is possible to add a new valuation, to delete or modify an existing one.

It is useful to refer to the valuations item to a good understanding of the rest.

For each valuation item, the following characteristics are visible:

Name

The name of the valuation is shown in the left column.

Time Unit

The time unit determines the calculation mode of the valuations.

This unit can be:

  • Day.
  • Hour.
  • Load in days.
  • Load in hours.
  • Of the event.

Fixed value

The fixed value of the valuation is a value associated to the existence of the event.

Value per unit

The variable value per unit is a value which allows to be proportional to the duration or to the load of the event. (cf. Time unit above)

Coefficient

The coefficient is the coefficient of the valuation.

Total(base)

This total is calculated thanks to the values precised above.

Total(global)

This total is the global value of the valuation. It is the result of the multiplication of the Total (base) with the global coefficient of conversion.

Total Valuation

Finally, this last total is the sum of all the valuation items of the event.

cf. Valuation item

NOTE BLOCK

The note of the event allows to add a multi-line text comment.

HISTORY BLOCK

These properties can not be modified.

The history of the event contains:

  • The date and the hour of the creation of the event.
  • The login of the user who created the event.
  • The date and the hour of the last modification on the event.
  • The login of the user who did the last modification.

It is also possible to register the detailed history of the events. To do so, the history tracker must be activated in at least one of the dimensions of the event. To see the detailed history, click on the history block of the event.
