In the resource overview, you can control the resource utilization. Resources can be employees or objects used for work such as rooms, vehicles or machines. InLoox PM differentiates between internal resources (i.e. Exchange Server mailboxes) and external resources (i.e. email and fax contacts). InLoox PM uses the free/busy-feature of Microsoft Exchange Server for internal resources and integrates the information (busy, tentative and out of office) into the workload diagram.
