Resource Routing Arrows

Resources move from their initial position to Activities, between Activities (if using travelling resources) and back to their initial position. By default, they move to the next location directly along a straight routing arrow which is hidden. However, we can display the resource’s routing arrow and modify it, to change the animation of the work item travelling.

To do that, first set the Resource’s Travel Times from/to Activities and their initial starting point through the Travel Time Matrix. Once, travel times are defined, we can then show the resource’s routing arrow by toggling on “Show Resource Routes” on the top ribbon.

A Resource’s Routing Arrow can then be modified by bending the Routing Arrow as desired. Note, this does not change the time specified earlier for a Resource to travel but rather is for animation purposes.
