Use the Minimum row height in histogram setting to define the lower border for the height of a histogram row. Smallshows more rows in the given space, e.g., if many resources should be displayed. Large shows less rows, e.g., if the focus is on details in the histogram.
Use the Histogram scale type setting to determine if each row should be scaled individually or if all rows should use the same scale. Select Individual scale for each row to scale each row individually, such that rows with a higher capacity or allocation will use a more fine-grained scale than rows with less capacity and less allocation. Select Unified scale for all rows on the same level to use the same scale for all rows on the same level. In this case, the row with the highest capacity or allocation will define the scale and all other rows will use it, such that the capacity and allocations displayed with the same height in the histogram represent the same amount of capacity and allocation. With this setting, the scale is determined per level, meaning that aggregated role or OBS rows may still use a different scale than the rows for roles and resources grouped under them.
The Week display in timeline setting determines whether weeks will be displayed with the date of the First day of the week or with the calendar Week (W) number in the timeline.
The Over-allocation threshold determines the allocation threshold above which projects will be displayed as over-allocated with a red line on the project bar. The value is also used as the upper limit for role and resource allocations during auto-scheduling. It may range from 50% to 200% in steps of 10% and defaults to 100%.
Select Show notifications for changes made by other users if you wish to be notified about changes made by other users. Deselect this if you don't wish to see notifications about changes made by other users.
Select Show Auto-Schedule to enable the Auto-Schedule option in the main menu. The Auto-Schedule option in the project context menu will always be available regardless of this setting.
The Auto-Schedule feature will try to optimize the chronological order of projects in such a way that all projects can be completed in the shortest possible timespan.
This is done with respect to the following constraints:
- Milestone dependencies above and below the cut-off line
- Role and resource capacities as defined by their calendars and the over-allocation threshold selected under General Settings in the My Account tab of the settings.
After auto-scheduling, each project for which this was possible will be at the earliest possible position where milestone dependencies are met and no over-allocation of roles and resources occurs. The algorithm will also try to preserve the ranking of projects.
