Views in iTaskX
Views display, in a particular format, a subset of the information that you enter in iTaskX. That subset for information is stored in an iTaskX project and is displayed in any view that calls for it. For example, the task name you enter in the table portion of the „Gantt Chart” view also is available in the „Task Sheet” view. iTaskX offers three group of views: task views, resource views and assignment views.
View tasks and associated information in a sheet, and see tasks and durations over time in a bar graph on a timescale. Use the „Gantt Chart” view to enter and schedule a list of tasks.
View tasks and task information in a sheet, and a chart showing a baseline and scheduled Gantt bars for each task. Use the „Tracking Gantt” view to compare the baseline schedule with the actual schedule.
Enter, edit, and review all tasks and task dependencies. Use the Network Diagram view to create and fine-tune your schedule in a flowchart format.
Enter, edit, and review task information in a spreadsheet format.
Enter, edit, and review resource information in a spreadsheet format.
It's also possible to add resources with it's basic information in the iTaskX Library .
Review, enter, and edit assignments by task. In the sheet portion of the Task Usage view, each task is listed with the assigned resources indented beneath it. In the timesheet portion of the view, information such as work or costs for the task and the assignment is listed according to the timescale; for example, by day or by week.
Review, enter, and edit assignments by resource. In the sheet portion of the Resource Usage view, each resource is listed with all associated task assignments indented beneath it. In the timesheet portion of the view, information such as work or costs for the resource and the assignment is listed according to the timescale; for example, by week or month.
To change views in iTaskX use the „View” toolbar icon or use the navigation area.
For most of the iTaskX views an „Graph” area is also available. In the „Graph" area you can set up „Summary” graphs (Work and Cost values) and „Resource” graphs.
To open the „Graph” area use the „Layout” toolbar icon.
If you often customize a view, for example, by adding columns, it’s recommended to create a custom view or table for this information because too many columns in one view creates an information overload. It quickly becomes difficult to navigate, print, and manage the project.
To create custom views or tables open the „Navigation” area with the „Layout” toolbar icon and click on the „+” button.
