Field Service: Planning

Purpose

This document covers the Planning menu in the Field Service application of Odoo 15.

Process

To get started, navigate to the Field Service app.


Odoo provides three layouts to help you plan your Field Service tasks. You can play by User, by Project, or by Worksheet. These views are virtually identical, but the filter will differ. For each view, tasks are shown in the grid with column totals at the bottom.

Planning By User

Go to Planning > By User

Here you'll see employees listed down the y-axis and dates along the x-axis. 


Planning By Project

Go to Planning > By project

Here you'll see employees listed down the y-axis, grouped by project, and dates along the x-axis.


Planning By Worksheet

Go to Planning > By Worksheet

Here you'll see employees listed down the y-axis, grouped by worksheet, and dates along the x-axis.


Appearance + Management

Task Colors

The colors of tasks correspond to the worksheet templates assigned to them. Refer to Worksheet Templates for more information on formatting them. 


Moving a Task

From any view, you can click and drag a task to different row. Depending on the view you're in, this could mean a change of employee, worksheet, project, or all three.

Time Segment Markers

You'll notice at the top of each column, just under the date, there are markers with totals. This indicates the number of tasks for this employee scheduled to start in the first half of the day (left) versus the second half of the day (right). One of the Planning filters (Responsible, Project > Responsible, Worksheet Template > Responsible) must be applied to see these time segment markers.

Schedule Conflicts

Tasks that show a red triangle on the top-left corner indicate a scheduling conflict for an employee. It means the employee is scheduled for two tasks at the same time.
