Settings for Capacity Planning

Calculate Capacity Planning From

When producing the Capacity Planning Report, you can select whether capacity should be calculated Forwards based on the Job Start Date, or Backwards from the Job Due Date.

For example, a job has a Start Date of the 1st of February and a Due Date of the 14th of February.

  • Selecting "Forwards" will calculate capacity from the 1st of February.
  • Selecting "Backwards" will calculate capacity working backwards from the 14th of February.

Job Start Date

Job Start Date is used to select a Custom Field to indicate the start date of a job when calculating available capacity.

An FYI Admin can create a Custom Field via Practice Settings - Custom Fields. Refer to Managing Custom Fields. The Custom Field must be:

  • Defined as a Custom Field with the Type set as "Date".
    and
  • Set up with Applies to as "Job" (you can select additional options, for example, "Client").

The Calculate Capacity Planning From field will need to be set to Forwards to calculate capacity based on the selected Job Start Date field.

For practices integrated with Xero Practice Manager, if a Custom Field has not been selected from the window, the values entered for the Job "Start Date" in XPM will be used.

Job Estimated Hours

The Job Estimated Hours field is used to select a Custom Field for anticipating the number of hours required to complete a job, required when calculating available capacity.

An FYI Admin can create a Custom Field via Practice Settings - Custom Fields. Refer to Managing Custom Fields. The Custom Field must be:

  • Defined as a Custom Field with the Type set as "Number".
    and
  • Set up with Applies to as "Job" (or both "Client" and "Job").

For practices integrated with Xero Practice Manager, if a Custom Field has not been selected from the window, the values entered for the "Estimated" field in XPM will be used.

Job Completed Date is used to select a Custom Field to indicate the completed date of a job when calculating available capacity.

An FYI Admin can create a Custom Field via Practice Settings - Custom Fields. Refer to Managing Custom Fields. The Custom Field must be:

  • Defined as a Custom Field with the Type set as "Date".
    and
  • Set up with Applies to as "Job" (you can select additional options, for example, "Client").

The Calculate Capacity Planning From field will need to be set to Backwards to calculate capacity based on the selected Job Completed Date field.

If a Custom Field has not been selected, the Job Due Date will be used instead.

The Client Segmentation field is for future use and can be disregarded.

Settings for Workflow Jobs

My Jobs: Assigned User Roles

The My Jobs: Assigned User Roles option is only displayed in the Mappings tab if your practice has enabled Workflow Jobs (refer to Enabling and Setting up Workflow Jobs and Managing Practice Settings) or if FYI is selected as the Practice Management source.

If a User Role has been mapped, when a user is selected for that Custom User Role in a Workflow Job, the Workflow Job will be displayed in the Home - My Jobs tab for that user. Refer to Your Home Workspace.

Note: Users should only be selected after the Custom User Role has been selected in the Mapping window. 

For a Custom Field to be available to select on the Mappings screen, the Custom Field must be configured with the following settings:

  • Type - "User"
  • Applies To - enabled for "Job" (or both "Client" and "Job).

Refer to Managing Custom Fields.

Once the Custom User Roles are selected in the Practice Settings - Mappings tab, the relevant user(s) can be selected for a Workflow Job from the Job - Custom Fields tab. Refer to Job Custom Fields and Assigned Users in Workflow Jobs.

If the User has been selected on the Job - Custom Fields tab before the Custom Field had been mapped:

  • The User Role will not be displayed on the Job - Summary tab.
  • Assigned will be displayed as "Unknown"
  • The Workflow Job will not be displayed in the Home - My Jobs tab.

You will need to use Jobs Bulk Update to re-select the user for the Custom Field. Refer to Jobs Bulk Update.
