Powerful Scheduling Engine

Scheduler Pro has a built in powerful scheduling engine. It is the brain keeping your tasks scheduled based on:

Working-time calendars

Can be specified on project level, per resource and per event. Defines intervals of working or non-working time, the intervals can be recurring. See for example the Event non-working time demo

Dependencies

Dependencies between events determine when a successor can start. Shown in the Dependencies demo

Constraints

Per event constraints (for example Must start on or Must finish on) are taken into account when scheduling. Used in the Constraints demo
