USE

After having made a selection of one or more events, it is possible to shift them. There are several methods available to carry out this action.

Drag and Drop

It is possible to achieve this shift using a drop and drag within a planning view.

This type of modification is above all suitable for changes over a short period.

If the event’s resources change during this drag and drop operation, then the creation rules are re-applied.

The movement may not be possible, depending on:

  • hierarchies,

  • constraints,

  • user rights.

Properties of the event

By right-clicking on the event > Properties or even by double-clicking on the event it is possible to modify the start date, which causes the movement of the validation.

For a multiple selection, all the events are positioned at the same start date.

The resource are not modified, and thus the creation rules are not recalculated.

The movement may not be possible, depending on:

  • hierarchies,

  • constraints,

  • user rights.

Shift

Finally, it is possible to carry out this movement operation using a dedicated functionality.

This functionality does not modify the resources, and thus the creation rules are not recalculated.

The movement may not be possible, depending on:

  • hierarchies,

  • constraints,

  • user rights.

To use this functionality, right-click on a selection of events > Shift

The following window opens:

The shift dropdown list provides two values, allowing two different behaviors:

  • To a date,

  • On an interval.

Shift to a date

Used to move all selected events.

In this case, you must give:

  • The start day

  • The start time (for hourly events only).

The specified date is the start date for the event, selected by a right click.

Shift on an interval

This is used to move all selected events to an identical time interval.

The time gap between events is preserved, unless the calendars need them to be modified.

In this case, you must give:

  • The direction of the movement:

    • forwards,

    • backwards.

  • Number of days,

  • Number of hours (for hourly events only),

  • Number of minutes (for hourly events only),

  • Worked or not.
