Once you have your Planning & Resources extension add-on activated, you can go to User Roles to set up which permissions are allowed on that specific role. By default, the Administrator team will have the ability to Edit anything on this module.
When adding a Session, you can add a specific user as the Producer. But first, you will need to enable this skill on that user account.
Producer skill is optional, as long as you have the correct set up in the User role, you can still access Planning & Resources.
Adding a Producer skill, however, will provide the visibility for the team and you will eventually be able to filter by Assigned Producer.
On the left side, you will see the calendar of the current month. The first day of the week will be defined according to the user’s date & time zone settings.
On the right side, you will have the option to:
View the complete calendar
View the sessions created on each day
Choose between the view of ‘4 days’ or ‘week’
Save and/or share the view
Sessions allow you to assign Production tasks, Users, and Set Locations to a dedicated time frame. This gives your studio the ability to plan and view its production schedule in one place.
On the left side, under the calendar, you can filter your Sessions based on your studio’s available Production Types.
On the right side, all of the existing sessions will appear here. These session cards will be placed in the order of their beginning time slots. You can drag the session to a different day and slot.
When you select a session, the session slide-in will appear from the right-hand side. From here, there are two tabs: overview and production. Under ‘production’, you can add or remove production tasks, and see the detailed status of each product in this session. Under ‘overview’, you will see the following details for each session:
You will see the progress bar at three places showing the progress percentage and the number of products.
The progress bar on each day will show the production progress of the whole day
The progress bar on each session card
The progress bar in the session slide-in
You will see the percentage of checked-in samples for a Session in two places:
The circular progress indicator on each session card
The circular progress indicator in the Session slide-in on the Production tab.
As on all the screens in Gamma, you can create a view and save it as your default view or even share it with other users within your studios.
You can learn more about adding sessions and productions here.
