The time schedule contains all time periods of your project.
By default, the time schedule of your project contains the planning period and usage period of your equipment.
We recommend making your list of time periods as complete as possible, and to connect your times to equipment groups (automatically done by the default planning period and usage period) and crew/transport functions. This is useful when the times of your project change: the times of your equipment groups and crew/transport functions will then also automatically update.-
During this period, your equipment will be out of the warehouse.
The planning period is used to calculate equipment availability. Planned equipment will not be available during the planning period, because it's needed on the project and will therefore be out of your warehouse.
Tip: Some companies also include necessary time for preparation and cleaning into the planning period.
Your customer will be charged for the entire usage period. This is when the equipment is actually being used for your project.
The usage period is needed to calculate the price factor, which largely determines the price of the project.
Select a default planning/usage period
You can choose any time period in your schedule as the planning period or usage period for your project. If you do, make sure your equipment groups and crew/transport functions are connected to the right time period.
- Click on the next to a time period.
- Select Default planning period or Default usage period.
Set up your default time periods
You can save time by using project templates to configure your default time periods. If you create a new project using your own template, the time periods you've configured will automatically be applied. This can save a lot of time, especially if you often create projects that are similar to each other.
