New Longer Timescales for DayBack

Resource Scheduling Swimlanes

You can now extend the pivoted scheduling view in DayBack to show items by week instead of solely by day. This lets the swimlanes in your schedule present your resource allocations for up to 23 weeks at a time (almost six months).

In the screenshot above, most installation and training appointments take a whole week to complete. But a few items just take a few days. Importantly, schedulers can see vacations and travel on the same view where they’re assigning resources.

Other Long-Term Views

You’ve always been able to see long timescales on DayBack’s Horizon view (below) where you can look at several years at a time. However, the Pivot List view is better at showing gaps in your schedule. (Horizon is better at showing the relationships between projects over time.)

Both of these long-term views are available to both FileMaker and Salesforce instances of DayBack.
