If this parameter is Yes, the activities will be prioritized according to the validated end date.

global parameter "priority of activities from end date" On

Despite its priority place in the WBS, the Evolution X - Analysis activity is scheduled after the Evolution X - Development activity due to its end date later than the second

  • End date can be inherited from successors or parents

  • Whether this parameter is Yes or No, the last priority criterion is the order in the WBS.

  • Prioritization by end date occurs just before this default criterion.

When you assign the pool to the project, only the row of the pool is shown in the allocation table.

The resources composing it are however present in the drop-down list of resources on the table of assignments.

No

None of the resources making up the pool are visible in the assignments table and they will not appear in the drop-down list of assignments.

Status change on assignment

When you assign a resource to a schedulable element of ProjeQtOr, you can modify the status of the element when creating an assignment.

For this behavior to be effective, you must specify which status will trigger this behavior. See: Status

When creating the assignment, the status will be automatically changed unless it was already in the trigger status..

Automation

Parameters to manage automations

Consolidate validated work & cost

Select if validated work & cost are consolidated on top activities and therefore for projects.

Select whether posted work and cost are consolidated across major activities and therefore across projects.

It is therefore the charges and costs of the sub-activities that will be transferred to the “mother” activities and therefore to the projects.

  • Never: Not consolidated. Charges and costs will only be entered and consolidated manually.

  • Always: The values are always replaced on the parent activities and the project. If the parent activities were filled in then the values will be overwritten by the child activities.

  • Only is set: Replaces values only if parents are given. An exception is made if the parent is set to 0 / “null”. In this case, the parent is not overwritten.

Single Sign On SAML2

Single sign-on is a method that allows a user to access multiple computer applications (or secure websites) by performing a single authentication.

Connexion screen with the protocol SSO

With the single sign on you do not go through the login screen of projeqtor but by a screen dedicated to single sign-on

When connected to the SSO service, the service tells each application that the user is logged on.

This avoids having to connect to applications one by one.

In concrete terms, the site or service to which the user is trying to connect makes a request to the server or the identity provider’s site. This one asks if the user is connected. If so, he transmits the information.

Depending on the protocol used, the two sites exchange keys, signatures and / or other information to verify the identity of the user.

disconnection screen

Disconnection screen

When you want to disconnect from ProjeQtOr with the SSO method, the logout screen gives you several options.

  • local disconnection of projeqtor. I do not leave my SSO session

  • SSO disconnect. I leave my SSO session. I should identify myself again

The actual work is automatically entered from the scheduled work until the day before the start of the schedule calculation.

Warning

For security, and to avoid overlapping with a manual input of reality, if the resource has reality for a given date, we do not copy the possible planned existing in reality.

For each scheduled job found, if no job exists for the relevant resource on the date of the scheduled job, copies the scheduled job to an actual job.

We will mark the actual work entered automatically (technical zone type label) to distinguish between automatic feeding and manual feeding.
