Scheduling console


The scheduling console is the landing page of the Skedulo web app. The console allows a scheduler to switch views to visualize schedules, jobs, and resources over a given period.

The scheduling console helps a scheduler:

  • Efficiently use resources based on location and availability.
  • Identify jobs that are not scheduled.
  • Understand the relationship between activities, jobs, and resources–enabling them to be utilized effectively.

Work card list (job cards)

A work card provides a summary of the work information. This information consists of:

  • Work status.
  • Work type and account details.
  • Description.
  • Address of the work.
  • Duration of the work.

Using work cards.


A swimlane in the scheduling console gives a visual representation of a work item or schedule workflow–over a given date and time. Each work card in the swimlanes denotes the work item’s name (and number), the work item’s description, the start time and end time of a work item, and to whom it is assigned.

You can view the swimlane horizontally or vertically. 

Adjust the time grid using the Day drop-down menu and zoom controls. Depending on the option selected, the time frame represents blocks of hours, one day, three days, or one week.
