Change order color in capacity planning

Hi Gurus,

I want to make look and feel better for the orders displayed in CM25 transaction. Attached is the current situation. The order color and background color are grey. As a result, order span is not visible clearly on the time line. Also, the breaks (holidays) are seen in red color, which are quite irritating and I would like to have an uninterrupted view of order span. Can I assign some color like green to the order?

Note - I couldn't check note 71014 due to no access to system as of now, as we are just in starting phase of the project and I am working on a stand alone system.

    I believe that your interpretation is incorrect.

    The order is displayed in red, while the breaks and non-working days are displayed in gray.

    Hi Caetano,

    Thanks for clarifying. Yes, the resource is running for only 8 hrs a day and hence the capacity plan looks like this. Further, can we change the border color of order, so that start and end are distinctly visible? Also, can we display the breaks/holidays within order by another color, so that unplanned capacity is seen with grey color, while order running on resource, but halted due to breaks is seen with another color?

    Hi Gurus,

    I tried to change the color by following way. However, it is not giving required result. The color is changed for only static fields i.e. resource, order, etc. which are on left side on the planning table. It is not changing the color of the order block itself. Any suggestion on what is missing?

    SPRO-> capacity levelling and extended evaluation-->create overall profile

    Select overall profile SAPPI_G001 and go to details.

    Double click on Planning tab. profile, SAPPI_L002

    go to details, double click on graphics profile group BARC ( Name = SAP___X002),

    go to details of this combination,

    double click color group PLT001,

    There are many types assigned to this single color group. I selected the first i.e.00,

    go to details, double click on color definition PLTW00,

    go to details, change the model color pattern to VC_CROSS_PATTERN.

    However, this patters gets applied to the order number, etc. on the left side of planning table. I want this to be applied to the order span i.e. rectangle showing the order running on time axis.

    I also tried other options viz. background change, line chage, etc., but no result.

    Hi Sagar,

    My Requirement was to change the color of breaks when order is cutting across different shifts/days.

    I think your requirement cannot be met with standard. Please check note 71014 or consider some custom exits for the same.
