Shifting

 

The shifting of events is used to modify the start date for a selection of events.

This functionality is particularly useful for a shift over a large time scale.

USE

 

After selecting one or more events, you can move them. There are several methods available to carry out this action.

Drag and Drop

It is possible to perform this shift using a drop and drag within a Schedule 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 shift may not be possible, depending on the:

  • hierarchies,

  • constraints,

  • user rights.

 

Properties of the event

By right-clicking on the event > Properties or by double-clicking on the event, it is possible to modify the start date, which initiates the shift, once validated.

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 shift may not be possible, depending on the:

  • 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 shift may not be possible, depending on the:

  • hierarchies,

  • constraints,

  • user rights.

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

The following window opens:

shift

The Shift drop-down 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.
