More clarity with project codes

project codes job numbers

Some of you call them job numbers and others project codes. Whatever you call them, they’ve just arrived in Resource Guru to make your life a whole lot easier. One of our engineers suggested we announce the feature with some aerial skywriting – so there it is Klemen! ;)

Now, when you look at your projects, codes will help you quickly identify the correct project, even when they share the same name.

Resource Guru generates codes for you automatically but you can also enter codes generated by other software to easily identify them across systems. Of course, the codes now appear throughout the app including the schedule, reports and downloads to give everyone greater clarity. Here’s what they look like in the Excel downloads.

Share codes across projects

You can use the same project code across multiple projects if you need to. This can be especially useful if you need to generate a report for time booked on multiple projects associated with a single code. To do this, just use the Project/Client filter in Reports and search using the code.

    This is great. I had to put project codes on the project name line until now. I am really hoping that you also add a location field on the project. A free field so it could be couuntry or city depending on your business geography would do, otherwise a drop down using any UN country system woudl be better for integrity of filtering projects by ‘country’ location. I’d settle for just a field though. I would also like to group human resources by the office location (work place).

    Any chance projects can be listed by project code, rather than alphabetically by job name?
