Mimic your Business Terms and Lingo with Custom Fields
Using Hub Planners custom fields you can quickly replicate your current business terminology. We allow you to create custom fields for both projects and resources, enabling you to create your own data fields which can be associated with a project. You can then filter on these fields within the bookings grid to find what you are looking for.
Find Available Resources by Skills, Locations, Dept etc
As well as using custom fields you can tag and project or resource with a tag. Tagging helps you categorize your people and projects, create reports on a tag and filter your grid. If you tag your people with skills then it becomes very easy to find a resource with a certain skill available.
