The periodicity is a central concept of Themis since it allows to Themis to follow the pace of your projects. From a periodicity, periods of time are defined and may be planned in the future.
Every project is joined to a periodicity. That association is not final and may be updated at any time.
When you use Themis, you may thus easily navigate between each of the periods thanks to a listing of selection placed atop the page.
Create and modify a periodicity
By default, the Monthly and Weekly periodicities are preconfigured in Themis and available on the creation of a project. You may moreover neither edit them nor remove them.
To create a new periodicity you have to have administrators privileges, go in the Administration part then Periods. In the centra view, click on the Create a new periodicity button placed down the page.
A form opens to you with two parts to inform:
- The periodicity informations
- The name of the periodicity that will be used as name for all periods
- The start index that will be automatically incremented
- The associated configuration
- The first day of the first period
- The period duration. On the exemple below, 2 weeks. It is possible to choose weeks or days e.g. 1 weeks, 14 days.
Here the result in image:
The periods named "Pre Themis" are corresponding to 4 periods before the begining of the periods created by the user.
