If you're shipping an order across the country, or if it rains on a project and you need extra time to clean the items, you can add a conflict buffer to extend the time the items in the project are 'in use'.
For example, let's say I've created a project for March 15th - 17th.
Now let's say we need to include 12 hours shipping time to this project.
Next, I've added in 12 hour pre and post event buffer...
...So now my conflicts and usage will extend!
Here's how you can set this up on your projects.
First, click the gear symbol in the top right hand corner of your project. Next, click 'Project Buffers'. Then, click to 'Edit' the buffers for this specific project.
From here you can specify your Pre and Post Event Buffers. Finally, click to save these buffer windows for this project.
A Pre-Event Buffer could be used to include shipping time to the venue or prep time for all items on this project.
A Post-Event Buffer could be used to include shipping time back to your warehouse or cleaning time for all items on this project.
These times will be added on to the earliest or latest time on the project.
Want to add a buffer window to all your projects?
From your inventory, click 'Settings'. Next, click to 'Edit' your Project-Level Buffers. Then, include your Pre or Post-Event Buffers.
From here you can select if you want these buffers to apply to newly created projects, or all active projects. Finally, click 'Save' to set these buffer windows on your projects.
Here's how your conflicts will appear when using both Project and Category Level Buffers.
