Task Planner - The Traffic Light system

When using the Task Planner to allocate and manage tasks within certain groups, you will be presented with a colour theme of warnings that are displayed in order to help you spot any issues and fix them before they cause an impact on your staffing demand.

These colours, and what they represent when looking at your Tasks can be seen below;

  • Red - This task is under allocated with staff.
  • Amber - This task requires your attention, this could be due to over allocation of staff or a staff member might have booked leave over this period
  • Green - This task has met the required allocation of staff and no longer requires your attention.

This traffic light system is also shown on the Tasks panel on the left hand side of the Task Planner so that you can quickly see what Tasks require your attention the most. They are even displayed on the days of the month bar at the top of the Task Planner, this lets you quickly see what days of the month require your attention the most and by clicking on that day you can quickly resolve the issues presented.

This traffic light system is also used throughout the wider system when warnings and restrictions are put in place on things like requesting leave, submitting overtime and when using Manning Levels on the Work Planner.
