STRUCTURE: Display heading


The Display headings are defined for all of a dimension’s resources.

They produce a visible and if necessary unique representation of each resource in the different VISUAL PLANNING windows.

This representation takes the form of a concatenation of one or more headings separated by one or more defined characters.


If the LAST NAME and First Name headings are the two display headings for the Persons dimension, and the separator is ” – ”

Each resource will be represented as follows: LAST NAME – First Name

  • DUPONT – Jean
  • MARTIN – Charles



The display heading settings are configured in each dimension.

The display headings are used in several situations:


Event properties

In an event’s editing window, the resources are visible in the Resources pane.


Each resource is represented by:

  • an icon or a color,
  • a text corresponding to the display headings.

Resource type headings

Table mode

In a schedule view or resources view in table mode, the resource type headings show the “dependent” resources, by means of their display headings.


The display headings all appear in the resource type heading. These display headings can be separated by one or more characters, called separators.

Choosing a dependent resource

In a resource’s editing window, the “dependent” resources are easy to view.


When the “dependent” resource is changed, a window opens on a table which by default contains the display headings of the dimension in columns.

Assigning a resource to an event

You can assign a resource to an event by right-clicking on the event > Assign.


The window that opens contains the display headings by default.

The window that opens contains the display headings by default.

Export resources or events

When exporting resources or events, a resource type heading is exported as its display headings, with the separator chosen when defining the dimension.
