Subgroups and Linked Resources


Groups help you organize your resources, but you can also have subgroups inside a group. For example, you may have a group for countries and inside the UK group you have additional groups for UK Office Staff and UK Engineers. This structure can then be repeated for other countries. Or you have a group for People, and inside that group you subgroup your people by their Region, Team or Skills.

This structure is only used in the group/resource selector, when filtering or planning an event, to help you find a smaller subset of resources. Groups in the Timeline View and other views are shown flat with no hierarchy so you can choose to have a subgroup visible without having to expand all the parent groups above it.

Edit any group and under the Other tab you can choose where this subgroup should be placed in the group/resource selector.

Linked Resources

Use linked resources when the resource belongs to another resource and both may need to be selected in any event.

There are times when a resource like a Contact, Room, piece of Equipment or Site belongs to one of your clients or a different team. For this situation you can add your new resource and set the Parent Resource as the Client or Team it belongs to. When using the resource selector, any linked resources can then be seen.

Under a resources Workflow tab you can choose the parent resource that it belongs to.
