Workload for sub-tasks visualized jointly with workload for tasks

Hi,

I have tasks that require the participation (and time) of more than one employee. Hence, thanks to sub-items I can create a main task and add sub-tasks delegated to appropriate people.

The issue I have is that when I assign a person to a sub-item, select the TIMELINE for that sub-task, and indicate how many hours are needed to perform this sub-item, i cannot visualize this in the WORKLOAD view. This is a big problem which hinders the entire functionality of the sub-items for me. I cannot see how much time people have available during the day as the WORKLOAD visualizes only their work-time for the tasks and not for their work-time in sub-tasks.

I would really appreciate this functionality.

PS. Aggregate doesn’t solve that problem. Neither does assigning multiple people to the main task as then the estimated time indicated in the main tasks gets multiplied between all assign peopled.

Thanks,

Michal

Monday.com team,

Do you have a resolution for this? I am facing the same issue. I still need to sign up for the paid version and will be helpful if I can get some clarity over this before actually finalizing the tool.

I too am having this issue!

You have my support on this feature request, it would add much more value to the workload view!!

We are Denmark’s biggest accounting and auditing company with 1000+ employees.

Currently we are looking into Monday.com, among others, to help us manage a large amount of projects. We face the same shortcoming as described in the first post.

We need to be able to visualize subitems on both the Timeline, Gantt and in particular the Workload widget. Currently the Workload cannot group by “Person” set on the subitem level or calculate and display the workload versus capacity.

We also need the workload to summarize the total workload/capacity for each employee on the project for a specified time period. Ex. rest of the year, next year, a quarter etc.

In addition we also need the a Dashboard Workload Widget that can calculate total resource needs, per employee, across multiple projects that has the subitem structure.

This functionality is critical and key to us and the last hinderance for us to buy Monday.com

Will you fullfil this request?

Adding my vote here as well for this feature request.

To be able to look at a project, and all the people involved at different stages, we cannot visualize all the people on the timeline. Only one.

So one solution suggestion is to be able to link a timeline column with an people column, and then display that timeline with that person.
Another solution suggestion is to allow subitems that have people and timeline, to be shown in the timeline view as well. Right now, it only shows the main item “owner”.

subitems without summing up working hours (and seeing them on a time line make sense) dont make sense. We need this functionality.

I saw that you are working on this. Is this available in an alpha version?

Hi, recently we have included this widget for our maintenance programs, we have 8 similar boards for different sectors or areas. Our resources are (depending on sector) on parent item or subitems.

So we cannot make a one-time report via this widget including all the resourses of the company because we have to choose above 2 options, items or subitems…

We need this ASAP…

The same goes for the TIMELINE WIDGET that are not supporting subitems till today, and both versions (VIEW and DASHBOARD WIDGET)…

I completely agree with the need described above.
The workload view is a wonderful idea, but unusable if item and subitems estimated time can’t be seen jointly in the the workload view.
I hope you will be able to fix it soon. Thanks !
