PROPERTIES OF AN EVENT
The properties for an event can be accessed simply by:
Right-clicking on an event > Modify,
or Left-clicking on an event > Ctrl+E.
The window showing the event properties then opens:
- An event type may be:
- A start date (in the format dd/mm/yyyy),
- An end date (same format as the start date/time),
- A duration, i.e. the difference between the event’s start and end dates. (See Duration)
- The Working button is used to define whether the event is worked or not worked
- The reminder allows you to have a notification displayed on the screen according to the selected period before the event starts. The reminder can be from 5 minutes to 7 days before the start of the event.
The maximum duration of an event is 20000 days.
A progress bar determines the percentage of achievement. It runs from 0% to 100%.
The Automatic button is used to automate the achievement of an event.
Depending on whether the achievement is in automatic or manual mode, the event status may be:
|Mode||Event status||Achievement percentage||Event start date|
|Equal to 0%|
|Between 0% (excluded) and 100%|
|Completed||Equal to 100%|
|Manual||Planned||Equal to 0 %||after the current date value (in the future)|
|Ongoing||Equal to 0 %||after 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%|
Each event is associated with a load.
This load requires the choice of a type of load, which can be:
In days per day,
In hours per day,
In hours per hour,
In days per hour,
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.
This list serves to choose a form associated with an event.
If a form is selected, a tab bearing its name will appear in the event’s properties window.
This tab allows you to view and modify the values of the headings of the form associated with the event.
This tab will not appear if the event does not contain a form.
This tab serves to view and modify the valuation items associated with the event.
You can add a new item, delete an item or modify an existing item.
Refer to the valuation items for a better understanding of what follows.
For each valuation item, the following characteristics are shown:
The name of the valuation item is shown in the left hand column.
The unit of time determines the method for calculating valuations.
This unit can be:
the load, in days,
the load, in hours,
or, calculated for the type of event.
The fixed value for a valuation item is a value associated directly with the existence of a given event.
The variable value per unit is a value that allows the total to vary proportionally to the load or duration of the event (See Unit of time above).
This total is the global value of the valuation item. Is the result of a multiplication of the total (base) by the global conversion coefficient.
A note associated with the event serves to add comments in the form of multi-line text fields.
A default note can exist if this has been defined in the creation rule of one of the resources composing the event.
These properties cannot be modified.
The log of the event records the following:
The event creation date,
The ID (login details) of the user who created the event,
The date of the last modification to the event,
The ID (login details) of the user who carried out this modification.
You can also display a more detailed log if this option has been activated in the configuration of one of the dimensions that make 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.
In the editor of an event, once the detailed history has been enabled, the modifications performed since this event was created are displayed when you mouse over the attributes that have been modified.
The configuration of an event is established by the configuration of the other elements making up the schedule.
This covers dimensions, timetables, creation rules, events hierarchies and potentially forms and valuation items.
