In this article you will learn:
1. What is a booking
Bookings are times during which work should be done on a task
A booking can be made for a team, role or resource
A booking has an impact on the capacity of a team, role or resource
Bookings can be made by task responsibles, users with editing rights for the task, and Team Board authorized users
2. How do I book a resource, a role or a team
Bookings can be created directly in the task focus card or in a team board.
Open the Timeline tab in a team board
Click and drag the mouse over the days to be booked:
at a resource to book a resource
in the top line Unassigned tasks to book the team
In the dialog, select an existing task from a project or create a new task
Click on Add task to add a booking
Open the focus card and scroll to the Team booking area
Click on the Add button to add a role, a team or a resource
The booked hours of the resources are displayed in the Booked (h) column
Booked hours are taken into account in the capacity of a team or role
Team and role bookings are taken into account in the capacity as soon as a budget value is inserted in the Budget (h) column
The examples also apply to role booking (instead of team booking). In this case the booked hours are included in the role capacity.

Bookings can be seen in a task focus card or in the Team Board. The resulting capacity can be seen in the Team Board or in the portfolio timeline view.
