Planning history

Question

I have not found anything on multiple planning levels or steps in the documentation of A-Plan. What I mean here is that there is already a new schedule prior to the actual implementation, but the data pertaining to the previous schedule, however, should be retained. At the end, I have then the data from the "1st Draught" + "Schedule fine tuned" + other "Schedule fine tuned" + actual data.
Is there an option to enter all of these?

Answer

It is possible to make a Target / Actual comparison and to make a forecast; however, no scheduling history can be displayed.

We have dispensed with this since A-Plan has been developed with the conscious knowledge that it is a simple alternative for the otherwise very complex project management programs.

Assign multiple objects to one task

Question

Is it possible to associate multiple objects or links with one task?

Answer

You cannot, as a matter of fact, associate multiple objects per task, but it is possible to use drag & drop to deposit a folder from Windows Explorer under the "Object" column.

When you double click on this link subsequently, Windows Explorer opens with this folder so that you have direct access to all files in this folder.

Alternatively, you can work with subordinate lines which are then associated with one object respectively.

Converting the titles to English terminology

Question

I have converted A-Plan to the English language variant. Unfortunately, I have not been able to convert the titles such as, for example, Vorgang, Verantwortlich etc.

Answer

The titles cannot be converted automatically at a later stage, but appear in English only if you create a new database. Hence, you need to change them manually using the options ("Screen display" / "Columns/Rows").
