Building Your First Schedule

Building Your First Schedule

Amber Harlow

CoConstruct's scheduling feature allows you to build out your project's schedule, assign tasks to trade partners and team members and communicate with those individuals to keep your job on track. 

Building your schedule from scratch

  • To add and edit tasks in the schedule, you'll want to work from the Gantt or Task View
  • Using the "+" icon at the top left of the task list, add tasks into your project's schedule
  • Double click the task name, dates and duration columns to set the appropriate information for each task
  • Right click on a task name for options to input sub-tasks or tasks directly above or below and existing item in the schedule
  • From the Gantt view, you can also adjust the schedule using the blue task bars on the right hand side
  • Be sure to "Publish" your schedule or use one of the other options at the bottom of the page to save your work

Once you've built out your first schedule from scratch, save it as a template to use for future jobs!

 

Using a schedule template

To start building your schedule from a template, navigate to the project that you're building the schedule for > Schedule > Gantt or Task View > select the "Copy Template" link at the top right. 

This will bring up your list of available schedule templates so you can select the one you wish to use.

After bringing in your schedule templates, you can utilize the steps above to customize your schedule for this project!

For more information on schedule templates, view our training video here.
