The more I use Ganttproject, the more I enjoy and think about better utilities and features.
This one is easy. Please take a look at the screenshot, showing “long weekends”.
Let’s informally define “long weekend” as a sequence of feast day + labor day (1 at least) + feast day.
So, as you can see, there are several “long weekends” in the picture.
My suggestion is that it would be great to have a “detector” of such sequences for a project manager.
- There will be an “informational” icon (white lowercase “i” on dark blue background icon) in which you can be aware of a long weekend.
- There will be a “checkbox” on options to consider “labor days” in long weekends as directly feast days, and not to be counted as labor day.
I those long weekends, the availability of the resources is limited, and does not make sense to have 100% assignment of resources. But cannot add the labour days as feast days… they are not, right?
Hope this make sense. What do you think?
