The workload planner is a great tool.
However, I would like to know if it is possible to adapt the label/popup to display data other than the job number in the pop up info that appear when hovering over the graph (Could I for instance decide I want to also see the name of the client or the deadline?) I'm aware this is displayed on the right of the screen but is this layout changeable by the user?
Also, is it possible to select what should appear: for instance, if a job has been assigned to a different contractor or is on hold, can it be hidden from my view?
Sorry, but that popup contents is hard-coded and can't be customized. So, I will just check if it's possible to add this information there.

Well, also no customization. All we can do now is to check Manual allocation in a job, and then erase all entries from the Workload planner tab in the Translation job editing view. However, I think we need some setting to control this behavior. Will implement/fix this!
Thanks, that would indeed be great to have more flexibility on this!
As you mentioned "If any other fields, please let me know, to do it right now, as updates are not very frequent.. :)" in another post, I'm thinking it would be great if we could customize to layout of the workload planner depending on the job status (e.g. "on hold", "processing") so we can quickly see which jobs are ready and which ones are not yet confirmed.
Any chance this could be an option?
Big chance. Already done, for the same upcoming update.
Perfect!! Do you plan to allow customization of the labels as well?
For now, without customization. As this is popup, not common editing form. So in this particular case I'm implementing what you're asking about. In addition, popup contents are dynamic. Say, if job has no PO number provided, this row won't be displayed in a popup.
I understand. This makes complete sense.
Another useful feature would be if the planner would "refuse" (with a pop-up maybe or else) to add work whenever the workload will exceed the limit the user has set.
So far, the software allows to add as much work as you want despite the limit entered so then the changes need to be made manually afterwards.
Would it be possible to add the job name in the selected Job Details her?
Well, for this planner has horizontal limit line, showing maximum capacity. And any of buttons on the toolbar to automatically re-plan selected job always follow a rule to not exceed this limit when possible. At the end, if user decides to enter higher volume manually, it's assumed that a user does it intentionally, knowing that fact. So, if the app will start to warn/refuse user, it just could be too odd. Don't you agree?
As for second suggestion (job name in job details) - of course!!
Indeed, your comment makes sense

Maybe a simple warning a job could lead to go over the limit set. Because the jobs creation and workload planner are in different tabs/windows, I feel it would help to have some kind of "feedback" from the planner when creating new jobs.
Does this make sense?
All right, Aubeline, in this case it's fine. I didn't want to show separate dialog, where user has to click OK. But if it will be some notification right near (or inside) Workload planner table in the Translation job editing window, then it's absolutely fine and great addition! Will implement!
Implemented today.. Looks like this:
No message, simply color
This seems perfect!
