Grouping in Project's Dashboard

Grouping allows you to view your project's data in different ways. The grouping icon is located top-right of the membership list, just left of the resourcing plans.

No Grouping

No grouping is the default option in which every role is shown as an individual row. This is the "original way" of showing the roles as it has been like this for most of Silverbucket's lifetime. The only rule is that the unassigned roles are separated from assigned roles.

Unassigned roles (orange) and assigned roles (blue)

Group by People

Group by people sorts the project roles by people and shows data based on these individuals. Unassigned roles are shown as a separate Unassigned section (orange rectangle below).

In the example below we can see that Brown Elijah is resourced to do 70% workweeks: 50% consists of Officer work and 20% consists of Specialist work (blue rectangle below).
With this option you can easily see the cumulative resourcing for one person even if they have multiple different roles in one project.

Group by Role

Group by role grabs both the unassigned roles and assigned roles and bulks them up based on the role. When viewing the allocations in weekly & hourly mode you can see the resourcing plan for certain roles individually.
Specialists, week 32 = 101,5 hours / Specialists, week 33 = 141,5 hours / Specialists, week 34 = 122,8 hours

Group by Task

Group by task is a little different from the others as it takes the role's metadata into account -  specifically the Task value entered for the role.
This view shows all the tasks created for your project

In the example below we can see that the Preparations task requires work from Specialists but also has an Architect involved.

The 'Not set' section consists of all the roles that have no tasks set for them
