Grid overview


The table below describes all the information presented on the resource grid. If you want to hide some information, use the View menu and uncheck the view options.






Define consecutive timeframes used for work planning. It helps to think of them as, e.g., sprints, iterations, increments, or stages.

Summary row

Shows the sum of all the data available in a selected time range.

Unassigned work

Show the sum of the unassigned work.

Allocation (workload) vs capacity

This indicator shows the amount of workload vs the capacity. When overallocation occurs it will change to red colour (workload over 100%). When the workload is less than the capacity, it will be indicated with green (workload >75%) or yellow (workload between 75-100%).

Overall assignment

This feature can show all the tasks to which the resource is assigned which do not fit the Program's scope. Those tasks will be transparent and can not be reassigned or moved.

This is a BigPicture Enterprise feature.


The availability of a resource derived from the Workload plans and reduced by the non-working days resulting from Holiday plans.

Remaining capacity

Remaining availability when the resource is assigned to a task in a given time period.

Non-working days

Non-availability period of the resource.

Working/ non-working days view

Modify the 'View' options (deselect items). The grayed-out grid days indicate time off for a given resource.


There is a graphical representation of timebox aggregation periods when no timeboxes are shown on a timeline.

There is also the possibility to right-click on a timebox and choose "go to earlier timeboxes”. It helps when timeboxes are enabled, but none are in the given period.
