Compare

 

It is important for any business to know the existing schedule of the resources before scheduling them in order for them to be efficient. This helps them to not overlap any services and evenly distribute the services among the resources.

Compare view allows you to compare the schedules of all the resources who are eligible for the service assignment based on their role types.
