NOTE: You can manually add your schedule to ConsLog (Steps below) or import an existing schedule from Microsoft Project into ConsLog. You can go back in and update and replace the existing schedule by uploading an updated Microsoft Project schedule.
STEP 1 - In the construction module, click on the project you want to add a schedule to a project.
STEP 2 - Click on Schedule in the left menu and then click on the blue button on the top right corner that says "Edit Schedule."
Should I give a detailed schedule or a high-level overview? This depends on what the owner project manager wants. Some project managers want a high-level "milestones" schedule, and others want a detailed schedule. If they want a detailed schedule and you already have a Microsoft Project Schedule, you import the Microsoft Project Schedule into ConsLog within seconds. Whenever you upload a Microsoft Project schedule, it will just replace the existing schedule.
RECOMMENDATION: Click on the "Full Screen" to optimize your view while working on your schedule.
STEP 3: To edit, rename or delete an existing activity, click on the activity name or its green bar on the "Edit Schedule" page. Please view the image and gif below to see how it works. NOTE: If you are not on the edit Schedule page, this won't work. I
IMPORTANT: You will notice that ConsLog already created a default activity called "Project." You will want to edit this Activity and call it your first activity.
STEP 4 - If you want to add a primary activity, click on the top "+" icon. Once you click on it, you should have a pop-up showing all the information you need to add to that activity.
STEP 5 - If you want to add a sub-activity, click on the top "+" icon from the Parent Activity to which you want to add the sub-activity. Once you click on it, you should have a pop-up showing all the information you need to add to that activity.
STEP 6 - You can change your activity order by clicking on its name, dragging and dropping it where you want it.
STEP 7 - You can also create relationships between activities by clicking on the circle "o" icon to the left or right of each green activity bar and connecting it with another activity. You can delete a relationship by double-clicking on the orange line.
View the gif below to see how it works.
STEP 8 - You can update an activity % progress anytime on the "Schedule" or "Edit Schedule" page. Double-click the green bar and drag the progress slider to the % update.
