Project Rescheduling

In an ideal world, projects would run smoothly and experience no delays or setbacks. However, in reality, that isn’t typically the case and deliverable requirements often move. Mission Control provides the ability to reschedule (backwards and forwards) Actions relating to a Project.

99999

You can select all Milestones or just specific ones that need rescheduling. You can also choose to filter by Actions with specific ‘Action Status’ values (e.g. only those that are ‘Planned’ or ‘In Progress’).

 

Scheduler

The Scheduler provides a calendar style view of Action records. It can display Actions for all Projects, or you can filter to a specific Project. It enables you to reschedule and change ownership of any Action, as well as viewing holidays, Salesforce.com Tasks & Events and resource availability. The Scheduler is a very useful tool for resource capacity planning.

xxxxx

Risk Log

A risk log object allows you to manage Risks relating toa Project, a Milestone or a particular Action. The Risk Log allows you to specify the details of a Risk, categorise it and determine the Risk Score based on Impact and Probability.

 

Risk logs can be added from the project record.

bbbbbbbbb

All Risk Logs and a Risk Chart will appear on the Project Overview page.
