I am testing OpenProj and I want to thank you for the product.
Now here is my question: the website states that "OpenProj shares the most advanced scheduling engine in the industry with Project-ON-Demand.".
However, I don't understand how to achieve automatic task scheduling: I created a sample project with few tasks, and assigned two tasks to the same resource to obtain 200% resource usage. In that case I would like OpenProj to reschedule the two tasks in the gantt and to shift one of them ahead in time (as if there was a FS dependency between them) so that the load of the resource becomes 100%.
Can you help me ?
OpenProj does not do any resource leveling. You'll have to open the histogram window to see overallocations and move the tasks yourself.
Thanks for your software.
Since we are in the same trouble, it would be nice to have that feature. Are you considering implementing it?
I think this would be very useful to others as well, since it is cumbersome to schedule the tasks manually if your gantt-timeline is quite long.
Third on the list of requesters - I do belive that this feature should treated with high priority - even if it understandably is not trivial to implement.
I have to second the motion. OpenProj is actually 100% useless to me without auto-leveling, so I'm looking into other options like Open Workbench.
Ditto. Resource leveling is a must.
FYI, I don't see this happening. As far as I can tell, development on this project is dead: there's no source code available and the admins don't respond to any requests for help/information.
If I could find the source code, I'd be very interested in picking this up and seeing if we can push it forward: it's very good in mimicking MS Project (both GUI & basic features) and I'd love to avoid giving MS any more of my $$.
