Once a job is created (job status is "Queued"), the scheduler can allocate resources to the job via the scheduling console and/or job details view.
It is possible to simply drag-and-drop a job straight from the job list into the swimlane for a resource. The job card can be slid into place along a swimlane. The job's duration may also be adjusted in situ (see also Create Job).
The job details view offers greater control when assigning jobs. First, locate the job to be allocated from the job list in scheduling console, then click on the job number (or job name) to access the job details.
After picking a schedule date and time you are ready to allocate the job to a resource. To allocate a resource in job details view, hover over a resource's profile image (or the avatar provided) and you will see a small green "+" button, click on the green button to allocate the job to this resource.
Once a resource has been allocated to the job, the job's status is changed to "Pending Dispatch." Providing a date and time have been set, a job notification can be sent out to the mobile worker.
