A list of employees
The list of employees is presented in tabular form. The list of displayed columns can be changed by right-clicking on the table heading or using the toolbar buttons (see the Navigator section).
If there are tasks assigned to the user in the selected time interval on the calendar, then an additional list, where by each line corresponds to a task, is shown in the table under his name. The Name column displays the name of the task. The cell background color of those additional rows is determined by the value of the Activities of the corresponding task.
The calendar displays tasks and reports in the form of horizontal bars on the timeline.
The duration of tasks is determined by the «Start» or «End» parameters specified in the Task Properties. Dates can be adjusted on the chart by dragging tasks or their boundaries on the timeline. When you hover over a task, brief info and data on labor costs are displayed. View detailed information on the task by using the Forum, Properties, and Links tabs located to the right of the workspace.
Task reports are located next to the username and are displayed on the calendar with a narrow band. The duration of task execution corresponds to the labor costs that were declared by the contractor.
