Color Coding Bookings To Aid Scheduling

Scheduling can be very complex. It is important then for scheduling software to incorporate way to cut through this complexity. CyberMatrix scheduling software uses color-coding to make the scheduling process easier to follow.

In Pro Schedule appointments can be assigned a color to the appointment itself, to the appointment status, to the appointment topic, to the person the appointment is with, the client the appointment is with, the room the appointments is in or to the category of the person. If you are using the simple payment feature then all unpaid appointments will be red. If you have set the "Show current time" colored bar will be shown across the schedule grid indicating the current time.

The different Pro Schedule color options have a priority. The priority listing is as follows:
Status
Appointment
Topic
Person
Client
Room
Category

Similarly, in Meeting Manager bookings can be assigned a color to the booking itself, to the resource that is booked, to the booking topic or to the person who made the booking.

The different Meeting Manager color options also have a priority. The priority listing is as follows:
Booking
Resource
Topic
User

In both Meeting Manager and Pro Schedule, if you have set the "Show current time" colored bar will be shown across the schedule grid indicating the current time. If you have set the "Show current items options" then the bookings taking place right now will be colored green.

In the CyberMatrix Class Scheduler software the classes seen in the class schedule can be color coded. Classes can be color coded by Class, Class Type, Student and by Group. The Class Type color takes precedence over the Class color. That is, if you assign colors to both the Class and the Class Type the Class Type color will be used. The Class color takes precedence over the Student and Group colors. You can change colors in the form view of the Data Manager.

In the CyberMatrix Employee Scheduler software the work periods seen in the work schedule can be color coded. Work periods can be color coded by Employee, Category and by Shift. The Employee color takes precedence over the Category color. That is, if you assign colors to both the Employee and the Category the Employee color will be used. The Category color takes precedence over the Shift color. You can change colors in the form views of the Data Manager.
