Resource management with monday.com

In current times, we're all trying to get as many things done as possible. The monday.com platform has the necessary tools to make sure you and your team are not taking on too much (or too little) at once. 

The timeline 

Let's say you're usually working on the following Weekly Tasks board:

You can use the Timeline view and sort it by a Person Column (in this case Assigned - see highlight) in order to review the team workload:

It looks like Nick is currently tackling 2 tasks at once so maybe Alexandru or Nicolae can offer him some help.

The Board filter

Another thing you can do to identify the pulses, teammates, statuses, deadlines etc. that you're particularly interested in is use the Board Filter. This works for individual boards and in this example we're looking for the tasks our team are currently working on (Status = Working on it & Timeline = Current):

 

The Search everything 

As we're usually working on more than one board, consider using Search Everything to see how your teammates are doing across multiple boards at once. Here we're looking for the tasks that Nicolae is stuck on:

You can also add a date range (Filter by date button) and export the results to Excel:

As your tasks & boards evolve over time, it may help to extract & review this type of report every once in a while and see where the team's workflow can be improved.

My week 

Following our users' input, we've put together the new My Week feature which will show you at a glance the ongoing, upcoming & overdue tasks that you & your team are working on:

While managing and reassigning resources where needed is great, building a strong team where colleagues pro-actively let each other know where they can assist or need help is even better! With that in mind, we've put together the following guide on Communicating with your team using monday.com.

In case you need help with anything, please reach out to us through support@monday.com or use the question mark in the bottom right corner of the platform to submit a ticket. :)
