Find the right person for each task. View your team's Daily or Weekly Schedules by clicking on either Days or Weeks. Easily add users to your view, and see how full each user's schedule is in a bar graph. Learn more under See Team Availability.
You can also filter out specific types of work, including Scheduled, External, Committed and Auto-Scheduled.
Scheduled work ("Yellow" entries): Meetings in the schedule booked with clients. Create meetings from within Accelo and see them listed. If the account is integrated with Google, Outlook or Office 365, you'll see scheduled meetings from your calendar.
External work (“Maroon” entries): If the account is connected to G Suite, Outlook or Office365 you'll be able to see a list of external calendar entries from those platforms in the schedule. External appointments help you to see the full picture of what someone is working on. The details of these entries are only visible to that particular user, and are shown as "External Event" to all other users.
Committed work (“Dark Blue” entries): Reserved time in someone's day to work on a specific task. Users or managers can commit time to their schedule to work on a particular task, project, etc. These committed work entries will also automatically appear on their timesheet for easy time recording.
Auto-scheduled work (“Purple” entries): Auto-scheduled work appears as purple in the team schedule. Auto-scheduled work is the predicted amount of work that is upcoming for a Task over the course of a certain period of time.
After you find the right person for the task, easily put it in their schedule.
Drag and drop work from the left side of the screen onto users' schedules on the right to allocate tasks. Learn more under Allocate Work in Team Scheduling.
