PROPERTIES OF AN EVENT

The properties for an event can be accessed simply by:

  • Right click on an event > Modify

  • Or Left click on an event > Ctrl+E.

The window showing the event properties then opens:

DATE BLOCK

  • A type of event may be:

    • Daily,

    • Half-daily,

    • Hourly.

  • A start date (in the format dd/mm/yyyy),

  • An end date (same format as the start date/time),

  • A duration, the difference between the start and end dates for the event. (See Duration)

  • The “Works” checkbox is used to define whether the event is actually work or not.

The maximum duration of an event is 20000 days.

COMPLETION BLOCK

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

The “Automatic” checkbox is used to automate the completion of an event.

Depending on whether completion is using automatic or manual mode, the event status may be:

Mode

Event status

Completion percentage

Event start date

Automatic

Planned

Equal to 0%

 

Ongoing

Between 0% (excluded) and 100%

 

Completed

Equal to 100%

 

Manual

Planned

Equal to 0 %

Greater than the current date value (in the future)

Ongoing

Equal to 0 %

Greater than the current date value (in the future)

Urgent

Between 0% (inclusive) and 100%

Lower than the current date value (in the past)

Completed

Equal to 100%

 

RESOURCES BLOCK

The list of resources is visible and modifiable. The visible resources, belong to the existing dimension in the hierarchy of events, as per the configuration for the event.

Each resource is represented by:

  • an icon,

  • a color,

  • a text, corresponding to the identification headings, divided by a separator.

LOAD BLOCK

Each event is associated with a load.

This load requires the choice of a type of load, which may be:

  • Automatic,

  • In days per day,

  • In hours per day,

  • In hours per hour,

  • In days per hour,

  • In days,

  • In hours,

  • As a percentage.

There are three values for each event:

  • Value: The value, using the types defined above,

  • In hours: The conversion of the load, into hours,

  • In days: The conversion of the load, into days.

FORM BLOCK

This list lets you choose a form to be associated with an event.

If a form is selected, a tab, bearing its name, will appear in the event properties window.

This tab will allow the user to see and modify the values of the headings of a form associated with the event.

This tab will not appear if the event does not contain a form.

VALUATION BLOCK

This tab will allow the user to see and modify the values of the valuation items associated with the event.

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

It is useful to refer to valuation items for a better understanding of the following information.

For each valuation item, the following characteristics are shown:

Name

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

Unit of Time

The unit of time determines the method for calculating valuations.

This unit can be:

  • the day,

  • the hour,

  • the load, in days,

  • the load, in hours,

  • or, calculated for the type of event.

Fixed value

The fixed value for a valuation item is a value associated directly with the existence of a given event.

Value per unit

The variable value per unit is a value which allows the total to vary proportionally in relation to the load or duration of the event (See Unit of time above)

Coefficient

The coefficient is that of the valuation item.

Total (base)

This value is calculated from the values defined above.

Total (global)

This total is the global value for the valuation item. Is the result of a multiplication of the total (base) by the global conversion coefficient.

Total valuation

This final total is the total of all valuation items assigned to the event.

NOTE BLOCK

A note for an event allows the user to add comments in the form of multi-line text fields.

LOGGING BLOCK

These properties cannot be modified.

The log of the event, recorded:

  • Event creation date,

  • The ID (login details) of the user creating the event,

  • The date of the last modification to the event,

  • The ID (login details) of the user carrying out this modification.

It is also possible to display a more detailed log if this option has been activated in the configuration of one of the dimensions making up the event. To see the detailed log, simply click on the default event log.

In addition to the properties listed above, the detailed log will show any modifications applied.
