Server 2016 Proposed vs Committed Engagements RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am confused about the information shown in the Engagement Details View in PWA. The Project I'm using has "Calculate Resource Utilization" set to "Resource Engagements".<o:p></o:p>

    When I create a new Engagement Request, I see the "Proposed Work" in Project Pro Resource Plan View. I also see 0 Committed Work, as expected since the Engagement has not been Approved. I submit the Engagement and then go to PWA. When I go to the Engagement Details View, I see this:  (I'm unable to post images right now due to my technet account not being verified. I'll add them when I can. However, I posted the question in MS Community Forums with screen captures here:

    State: Proposed, Proposed Work: 80h, Committed Work: 80h. Time-phased view shows 80h Committed Work

    Even though the state is "Proposed", why does the view show Committed Work when the Resource Manager has not yet approved or rejected the Engagement?

    If I click the show "Proposed" check box I see:

    State: Proposed, Proposed Work: 80h, Committed Work: 80h (same as before). Time-phased view shows 80h Committed Work AND 80h Proposed Work

    Now, if I reject the Engagement I see:

    State: Rejected, Proposed Work: 80h, Committed Work: 0. Time-phased view shows 0h Committed Work AND 80h Proposed Work

    It appears that the Proposed box does not turn on and off Proposed work, but instead turns on and off Rejected Work. Also, Committed Work seems to actually be "Committed + Proposed Work". I think I'm missing something fundamental in the way this view works. Any help would be appreciated!
