This functionality exists for all events as long as the dimensions have a geolocalization type heading.

From the event properties window, by clicking on the resource selection button: .

The following window opens:

This window is used to select one or more resources.

To do this, the following actions are available:

  • Select a resource by left-clicking on it,

  • Select multiple resources using CTRL+Click (for a vertical hierarchy),

  • Reduce the number of visible resources by using a filter, taken from the resource filters for the dimension in question,

  • Display only those resources available, using an events filters, and:

    • the duration,

    • or the load.

  • Calculate the distances, by checking the dedicated box, then selecting two geolocalization type headings: See below.

  • Choose the localization period for the resources, checking the appropriate box: See below.

  • Search for a resource using the identification headings for the dimension in question,

  • Add a new resource,

  • Choose to display more headings, by double clicking on the name of the dimension

Depending on user rights, certain of these actions may not prove possible.


  • When assigning a resource to multiple events, the available resources shown in this window are those available for the whole period of all selected events,

  • For a control column type heading, with the option of clicking on the date, the event’s start date is used as the pivot point for the calculation of the period.

Compute distances

If the compute distances box is checked, a column appears, entitled Distance:

This column is not a distance type heading and is not therefore stored in the database.

It is simply a column to help in the selection of resources.

It is calculated as being the distance between two selected geolocalization type headings.

Localization period


This option is only active if the Computer Distances box is checked.

If the localization box is checked, you must select the period, in number of days or number of hours:

  • Before,

  • or Afterwards.

The distance calculation is then completed, depending on the position of the resource within the events that follow (after) or precede (before) the event in question, during the selected period.

For resources without an event within the selected period, we assume that the localization heading for the resource is to be taken into account for the calculation of distance.


Professional meaning

Example of associated configuration

Mr. Durand lives in Lyon

The resource, Mr. Durand, has a geolocalization heading with a value corresponding to Lyon

Mr. Durand travels to Marseille on Monday

Mr. Durand is involved in an event on Monday, sot the “Activities” resource has a geolocalization heading, with a value corresponding to Marseille.

Mr. Durand has no movements on Tuesday

Mr. Durand has not geolocalized events on Tuesday

We are looking for someone to travel to Nice on Wednesday

An event is set for Wednesday, on an “Activity” resource, with the geolocalization heading given the value corresponding to Nice.

How far does Mr. Durand have to travel if he leaves the evening before the event from his home in Lyon?

Assign the distance, with a localization period equal to 0 days
