Business Central “free to use” Graphical Scheduler

Business Central “free to use” Graphical Scheduler

APP by Insight Works

APP TOPICS

Graphical Scheduler is an app for Business Central (free to use to date) that can be used to view and schedule on the time line (a Gantt Analysis) production orders, resources allocated to both Assembly and Orders, reading also from various other data sources and the possibility of activating a customized source to retrieve other data.

There are still some functionalities in experimental mode but I must say that it is very interesting, I have done some tests which I illustrate below. Obviously there are several products that do much more complex things but this is “free to use” and easy to use, I want to report it to the community.

NOTE

Here are a few considerations to consider prior to using the scheduler.

  1. The Graphical Scheduler is a tool to assist production in the manufacturing module of Business Central, it does not replace the Business Central scheduling functionality.
  2. You must have your production and manufacturing configured to effectively use the Graphical Scheduler.

The “Graphical Scheduler Views” page will allow for the creation of different views of the Graphical Scheduler. These will be accessible to any user that has access to the Graphical Scheduler
