In this article, you will learn the main differences between these Activity Management tools.
The Gantt Chart and Calendar are indispensable tools for managing projects at your agency. To make the most of these features, let's get to know them better!
1. What is a Gantt Chart?
The Gantt Chart in iClips has a very specific function: to monitor and visualize the schedule of all employees, aiming at better use of each person's available time. This tool will help the project/traffic manager to better distribute the agency's work, thus avoiding overloading the creative staff and not missing the deadline for the delivery of activities.
Additionally, by using the Gantt Chart, it is possible to readjust some information within the piece, such as those responsible for the tasks, start/end date, workflow order, priority, etc.
The Calendar is used to carry out the distribution of pieces without a delegated person and without a start and end date. Through the calendar, you can set the information by dragging the activity into the frame, which will open a new window that allows you to adjust it according to the need of that activity.
You can also use the filter to view only the calendar of the person who will be responsible for the activity.
The calendar is used as an extension to the Gantt Chart. By viewing schedules in the Gantt Chart, the distribution will occur in a more assertive way in the Calendar.
Both the Gantt Chart and the Calendar are indispensable tools for the traffic/project manager to have a better view of the workflow of the agency's employees.
