Overview


The Boards Page provides you with the opportunity to view your People and Projects as well as make new assignments with ease. There are two different methods that can be used to create individual assignments on the Boards Page which will be reviewed in this article.

This is the first method for creating an individual assignment on the Boards Page.

  • Proceed to the Boards Page and find your desired resource in the Resource Bench (located on the left side of the page)
  • Click+hold on the resource card

    • Drag it into the desired project field and release

    • You can also drop it onto a workforce request card

When the resource card is placed, the Assignment Details modal will automatically populate.

  • Enter all of your desired assignment details, such as the assignment duration, working days, start and end times, etc.
  • Choose to either Save or Save & Alert the assignee


Save assignment


Choosing Save creates the assignment and shows you the Gantt view of the assignment details. If the details are correct, select Close.

  • Hover your cursor over the assignment bar to populate the assignment details at the bottom of the modal

Choosing Save & Alert automatically takes you to the Assignment Alert modal. This is where you will edit the recipients and content of the message. You can choose to send the alert now, schedule it for a future time or save it as a draft.
