What is the function of Capacity in Person's Dashboard?

Apart from Silverbucket's Timesheet-functionality which only tracks the Workday Length -value, Capacity can be considered as a multiplier for Workday Length. It is used for the yellow area in the Overview-graph which, in simple terms, answers to question: 'How would the situation look if this person had only x percent of their capacity".

Capacity only affects the capacity values in graphs; not the expectancy of actual hours, for example


Note: in the above example Silverbucket's Timesheet-feature would still require 37,5 hours of actual hours from the person, as Timesheet only uses the Workday Length in its calculations.

The capacity value can indicate the actual workday from a person during a work day - in the end every workday involves lunch breaks, coffee breaks, travel time etc that diminish the actual working hours from any person. By using the capacity and then using the scaled capacity -value in Silverbucket you can get a deeper glimpse about the workforce you have in hand.


Note: capacity is not taken into consideration in the Allocations-views or reports unless stated otherwise in the view; the overall resourcing colors are compared only to the workday length in Person's Dashboard.
