The Resources module can display data essential to managing your resources in a number of views. The view options are accessible via the "View" drop-down dialog. You can display the Workload, Remaining Capacity, or Capacity of your resources. You can also show or hide Tasks and Warnings. 

Adjust the view by selecting the information you need.


Both basic tasks and connected tool tasks (Jira/Trello) are shown.

Tasks are divided into rows based on their assignment. Task are color-coded to mirror the status category.

For example, the color blue indicates that the BPV-28 task has the "In progress" status category.

Basic task assignee

You can assign tasks to users using the Resources module.

Basic task workload

If you have BigPicture Enterprise, you can manage the workload of basic tasks. 


Show the amount of work already assigned to a resource in a given period. 

The Workload information is also available in the Gantt module's Resource panel.


Show the amount of work a resource can deliver in a specified period. The capacity of your resource is based on Workload plans and further adjusted by the number of non-working days as set in Holiday plans and Absence plans.

Remaining Capacity

See the difference between capacity and allocation (workload). Remaining capacity shows the amount of workload which can be further assigned. Negative values indicate overallocation for a Resource, and the Summary row indicates if resource demand exceeds supply.

Show Overall Assignment

Show all the tasks assigned to a resource across all created Boxes. To see this, you need to enable the "Tasks" view as well.

To use this feature, you must install BigPicture Enterprise.


Warnings highlight the misconfigured and potentially problematic tasks that need extra attention. Once enabled, you will see a red frame around the problematic tasks. Learn more about Warnings.

Working and Non-Working Days View

One of the most basic views is the bare "Working Non-Working Days View" where you can get a quick overview of the resources that are working (or not) on a particular day on a monthly, quarterly, of half-yearly scale. 

Non-working days resulting from Holiday, Workload, and Absence plans are greyed out while working days are in white.
