As a Producer and Manager, you can now identify where Artists are over-utilized and underutilized across the studio and departments, and can rebalance work easily. Resource Planning views leverage live data in ShotGrid, allowing you to react more quickly to the dynamic nature of production and confidently deliver projects on time and on budget.
The new views provide an overview of your studio’s Artist capacity and workload across all projects and departments. Easily see when and where Artists can take on more work or when they have been assigned too much and drill down into the details without leaving the views.
Tip: not seeing Resource Planning in your global navigation yet? Try refreshing your browser (hard-refresh) and then it should appear.
Department and Project views provide a breakdown of Artist resources and the work assigned. Visualize data by departments across all projects with the Department View, or by each individual project and their departments with the Project view.
Dive into detailed views of an individual department or project and quickly identify Artists who are over or underutilized. Easily pull up an overview of a given Artist’s assigned tasks and adjust task assignments and schedules while staying in the same view.
With robust customizing capabilities, you can tailor your views and data for your unique studio needs.

- Configure how Workload is calculated and what it represents
- Adjust the capacity of each Artist per Project with Bookings and % Allocation, and globally from a People page
