Resource Groups

All Timewatch® resource scheduling solutions have a powerful resource grouping system which

allows you to organize resources into flexible, manageable groups and use them to view resources in that group, search for availability within that group, even create a group that defines which resources users can see.

Groups can be a simple list of resources such as a group of people with a specific skill, skill levels or geographical locations.

You can create a heirarchy of groups, for example if you have multiple levels within a skill, you can arrange your groups so that you click on the skill to show the levels within that skill. You can even 'intersect' groups to help locate resources in one group that are also in another: for example search for someone with skill A in region Y that is available on a specific date.

Managing scheduling conflicts

Resource scheduling conflicts are a major source of issues for many organizations. Most systems, including MS-Outlook, ignore the problem and simply allow conflicts, yet in the real world scheduling is not that simple. In some cases conflicts need to be allowed and are even desired, yet in other cases they should not be.

For example, many organizations have provisional bookings where it is desirable to allow multiple bookings in the same calendar space, but require them to be "bumped" if one of the bookings becomes confirmed. Equally, there may be certain booking types for which conflicts should never be allowed.

Time&Space® & WhiteSpace® fully embrace conflict management by allowing you to define which types of bookings do and do not allow conflicts. It proactively polices this to ensure users cannot make disallowed conflicts, and where allowable conflicts exist, the system helps them resolve these conflicts where appropriate.
