Resource pool

    Question

  • Hi

    I'm using Project professional 2010.

    There in resource pool while sharing resources One option indicates "On conflict with calender or resource information" where we have two options as 1. Pool takes precedence & 2. Sharer takes precedence.

    I could not able to figure out the difference.

    can anybody please help me out of this.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hello Mahapatra,

    Pls see the Help article here at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project-help/share-resources-using-a-resource-pool-HA010214871.aspx for examples:

    Click Pool takes precedence if you want resource information in the resource pool project to override any conflicting information from the sharer project. This option is selected by default.

    For example, if the resource named Karen Berg has maximum units of 100 percent in the sharer project, and the same resource has maximum units of 75 percent in the resource pool project, and you indicate that the pool takes precedence, then the value of 75 percent is retained as the maximum units for Karen Berg.

    Click Sharer takes precedence if you want resource information in the sharer project to override any conflicting information from the resource pool project.

    For example, if Karen Berg has a standard rate of $50 in the sharer project, and the same resource has a standard rate of $45 in the resource pool project, and you indicate that the sharer takes precedence, the value of $50 is retained as the standard rate for Karen Berg.

    Sharer is the file using resources from another file, which can be another project file or a file containing only resource information, called a resource pool. 

    Please post back if you have further questions.

    Regards.
