The Resource Editor is used to create, edit, and delete resources and resource groups. Resources must belong to resource group. At the moment sub-groups are not allowed.

Working resources must refere to a calendar that defines the working hours for the resource. Calendars are created using the Work and Vacation Editor.

Material resources is by default always available. You can use a calendar to limit its availability.

The toolbar provides the means to create and delete resources and resource groups:
