The booking seems to be a good think, but very at the beginning. Please extend it to better incorporation with the effort so one can use both at a time. Bookings for large scale project planning and effort for short term person planning. Both together interacting so one can see how many hours from the project budget (bookings) is already used by effort and already used by booked hours.
I somewhat agree with Sven Passinger in that I am not sure how to make use of bookings and effort in the same project. It sounds like a good idea, but since they seem to sum together, I haven't developed a method of how to use them yet. I don't want to create bookings, then start creating effort on tasks, and the result show that we are overbooked.
We use Effort to reflect the hours we sold for a given set of tasks. Bookings could be a way of blocking out users' time, but then the results of the workload get very muddy. I will continue to try to develop methodologies of how to use them, but developing them more with a relationship to Effort could be helpful.
Hello Sven Passinger, Jason Pontius, thank you both for your feedback on Bookings. I've passed it on to our Product team 👍🏼
