The Planning window

To open the Planning window, press the Planning button on the lay-out toolbar. Alternatively, you can select ViewPlanning in the Menu bar.

The Planning window only gives you an overview of the activities and key moments you've identified. It doesn’t allow you to modify anything. Once you've identified the activities in the logframe window, you need to indicate the starting date and the duration of the activities in the Details window. Similarly, once you've formulated one or more outputs, you can add the key moments.

The planning window

In the picture above, you can see that:

  • The key moments are listed on top in blue and their numbers begin with '#'. In the planning overview on the right, you can see the key moments as red diamonds.
  • The activities are listed under the key moments in black. The activities themselves are displayed as thick bars, while the preparation and follow-up periods are displayed as thin bars before and after the activities.
  • Black arrows show where one activity follows (or precedes) the other. Grey arrows show where an activity follows a key moment.


The activities are colour coded:
