Project Online: Resource Engagements conflicts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Within an earlier version (beta) i got the warning "An assignment for this task needs an engagement or is in conflict with an existing one..." in the indicator column in a Project Pro task view. I'm not get this warning even though i have a conflict. Anyone any idea?

    Regards,

    Gerd

  • Hi Gerd,

    This message appears for example if you assign a resource at 100% on a task whereas the resource manager commits for only 50% through the resource engagement new feature.

    See those 2 excellents articles for more details:

    Hope this helps,
