What is Schedule Entry?


Schedule Entry represents one or more items (such as job, event, activity) that are recorded in a given schedule and labeled with time, date, and a description of actions to be taken by designated employees when due. It determines a general set of measurement units (such as minutes, hours, days) for the schedule and specifies how scheduled items are supposed to be done.

Schedule entries determine the content of schedules and calendars. When a manager looks at a schedule, he/she regards entries as the amount of work to be done by assigned employees. Schedule entries serve as the input data for further employee planning and allocation.

An entry of a typical schedule can be characterized by the following parameters:

  • Type: task, event, activity, job, process, project, workflow.
  • Units: minutes, hours, days, months.
  • Periodicity: one-time or repetitious (recurring).
  • Assignment: an individual or a group of individuals (team).
  • Dependency: independent or linked to other entries.
  • Status: draft, in progress, completed, failed, cancelled.

For example, a work schedule includes a range of jobs (Type) assigned to employees (Assignment), measured in working hours (Units), dependent on each other (Dependency), recurring on a daily basis (Periodicity), and labeled as started (Status).
