Utilization of speakers

To open the utilization of speakers, choose Event managementUtilization of speakers.
Avendoo® shows the Gantt diagram regarding the utilization of speakers.

This Gantt diagram shows you the utilization of your speaker in the appropriate event dates, whereas the colored marking of the weekend is always set by default. You can show the utilization of a whole month about one day. You can restrict the selection in the Gantt diagram via multiple filter. Further you can sort the diagram by the shown columns if you click on the heading of the appropriate column.
The “Utilization of speakers”is shown in one line as related if there are linked users who got a 1-to-1 relationship.

The meaning of the colored marking of the entries you find in the legend below the Gantt diagram. There are conflicts of the event dates and the status of a possible meeting request for example marked.

To display the details of an entry, click on the box of the appropriate entry. You get the title and further information of the event date at the right margin.

To display the time of utilization on a certain day, click first on the month and then on the day. If you click then on the hour, you get the event dates of all filtered elements for this hour listed in the right, scrollable window.

In the left menu window you can restrict or expand the result via different filter. Therefore the following filters are available: User name, Last name, First name, E-mail, External reference, External reference type, Cost center, OU, Company name,  Postal code, Town, Group, Division, Region, Personnel number, Client, User type (User, Author, Users and authors), User status ( Show all users, Show only active users or Show only inactive users), ID, Identity Provider User ID, Identity Provider ID, Event date template, Start date, End date and/or Only resources being used. Via the filter Event date template you can restrict the display to these event speakers, who are in a certain event date template. Thus you can check, if all event speakers are available for the planning of an event date.

Activate the filter “Only resources being used”, to restrict the display to the event speakers who are used.

If you display the event dates of the event speakers of the author, there will be shown also the participations of the event dates of the linked user. You find further information about linked users here.

To configure the column view, click on this icon in the upper left corner of the table header. The dialog window Configure column view opens. You can configure the following columns: First name, last name and user name.
