In priority view, all your work is organized in priority sequence. Highest priority and the top and lowest priority at the bottom.

When planning a portfolio of projects, it often helps to rank your work by priority. This helps you focus your resources on the projects and work that is most important to you. 

While priority view and project view look similar, how they work is very different.

In priority view, Kelloo uses the priority of work to decide the order in which resources are allocated to projects.

Resources are allocated to the highest priority work first, then the next priority etc until all resource capacity is used up.

The plan will then show which work cannot be done due resource constraints. 

As you have organized your plan in priority, it is likely the higher priority work has been allocated resource and the lowest priority work has the resource shortfall.

You can then choose to re-organize your priorities, re-schedule work or decide to defer / cancel lower priority work with a resource shortfall.

How to read priority view

A resource overallocation indicator means all resource capacity has been allocated to higher priority projects first. You can learn more about how Kelloo decides if a resource is over-allocated.

Work with an overallocation indicator probably needs to be re-scheduled, re-assigned, deferred or cancelled.

Using the configure option to swap between bar and number mode.
