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.

Example:

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

CONFIGURATION

 

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.

affichage-rubrique

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.

affichage-rubrique-ressource

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.

rubrique-ressource-choisir

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.

assign-resource

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.
