About the Resource Scheduler

A Resource Scheduler is a type of bar chart that illustrates a schedule. You can access the Resource Scheduler by navigating to the Function Space Diary screen.

Figure 3-4 displays a Resource Scheduler and uses the floor plan of a hotel as an example. The Resource Scheduler sets values according to this example. You can use your own values to meet your deployment requirements.

    • The major axis is a dimension that appears in the timescale pane. In Figure 3-4, the major axis displays Thursday, August 15.

    • The minor axis is a dimension that appears in the timescale pane. In Figure 3-4, the minor axis displays the time of day, such as 10AM.

    • The third axis is a dimension appears in the timescale pane. It displays this axis as a third dimension in addition to the major axis and the minor axis. You can use the third axis to display Siebel CRM information according to your deployment requirements. In Figure 3-4, the third axis displays the total number of rooms that are available in the resource for the current day. For example, 300/380 indicates that 300 rooms out of a total of 380 rooms are available for the current day.

  6. Schedule pane. Displays the schedule as a timeline. It includes events that are scheduled for each resource.

An abbreviation is a shortened version of a value that you can specify in the Value property of an object that the Resource Scheduler uses. ST is an example of an abbreviation. It indicates the start time of the Resource Scheduler. Siebel Open UI uses these abbreviations to reduce the volume of data transmission that occurs during communication from the Siebel Server to the client.
