Schedule numbers, icons and colours

  • Updated


When there are issues around a job on the Schedule, a small icon will appear on top of the job in question, with each icon signifying something different. 

Hovering over an icon will display the meaning:

Schedule Tab - 17.png This indicates insufficient driving time allowance has been left between jobs
Schedule Tab - 18.png This icon indicates that the job should not be scheduled for this time, either because of a job constraint or because of other planned jobs.
Schedule Tab - 19.png This indicates that the job is at risk because of a late start.
Schedule Tab - 20.png This icon shows that the job requires a resource with a certain skill or from a specific  business area, in the example shown above it is 'Implementor'.
