Why Choose VJS

See

Especially when the jobs module "buries" data in a deep hierachy of tables: jobs, job tasks, job planning lines and resource allocations.

See all of this data at one glance. All of this is presented to you in the natural way you look at projects: as a project plan Gantt chart and a resource Gantt chart.

Understand

Transparently seeing all project and resource-related data is the first step necessary to fully understand your project plan and your resource situation.

With the VJS, you quickly understand dependencies, conflicts in your schedule and any unwanted issues.

Act

With full understanding of the schedule, the foundation is then laid to take action.

The Visual Jobs Scheduler enables you to easily adjust the schedule via drag & drop. This is true for the timing of tasks and planning lines, their duration, for the allocation of planning line to resources, etc.

Visual Jobs Scheduler Features - five highlights of the project planning Gantt chart add-in

 

Ability to plan on group level

The VJS helps you overcome an inherent weakness of the Dynamics NAV standard jobs & resource planning capabilities: with the VJS, you can assign job planning lines to a resource group and then move them to a concrete resource at a later point of time. This is achieved without changing the Dynamics NAV standard and enables the user to apply a proper rough and fine project and resource planning within one tool.

 

Drag & drop planning of tasks and resources

Visually plan jobs, job tasks and job planning lines and resources by simple mouse actions such as drag & drop. The VJS both supports horizontal movements (i.e. modification of start and end date) and vertical changes (i.e. modification of resource allocation). At the same time, you can implement and visualise dependencies of job tasks by simple interactions.

 

Link tasks and move chain of task at once

Another deficiency in the standard Dynamics NAV jobs module is the inability to link jobs, job tasks and job planning lines in order to reflect and take into account logical dependencies within the execution of the project. With the VJS, you can create these dependencies by literally painting them within the graphical project plan Gantt chart. Once jobs, job tasks or job planning lines are linked, these dependencies are taken into account when drag & drop changes are made to the schedule.

 

Understand resource load, not just project structure

The Visual Jobs Scheduler is not just an interactive Gantt chart as you might know it from other project management solutions. Along with the position of jobs, job tasks and job planning lines in terms of time and their allocation to single resources it also shows the respective resource utilisation. If moving a job task results in an overload, an optical warning will be given so that you can react immediately. Of course, this happens in realtime.

 

 

Complete integration into Microsoft Dynamics NAV

The VJS fully integrates in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. It directly connects to the NAV database and does not require the implementation of another database (with the inherent replication needs). The add-in makes use of the Dynamics NAV client extensibility framework and is "just" a typical NAV page. This tight integration brings a couple of benefits for users: they do not need to learn a new UI, they can continue to work in their standard ERP environment and they get a couple of shortcuts from the visual scheduling add-in to the ERP system: E.g. double-clicking a job opens the respective job card.
