You can use the Resource Planner to add new Job, Client, or Internal Task from various views.

  • on the Job Task view - you will be able to add Job tasks.

  • on the Resource Planner view - you will be able to add Client and Internal Tasks. You can also add Job Tasks from the Resource Planner view.

Resource Planner tasks are prioritised by date but you can drag (move) tasks up and down within the user's list to reprioritise them.

Once a task/booking has been added, you can select if you want to synchronise it allowing the Timesheet user to be able to use the Auto fill functionality to log time. They will also be able to capture time in Timesheets or on the relevant Job.
