Project Web App Resource Levelling RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am editing a project in the Project Server Web App, and have noticed that resources are not levelled.

    However, when i open the project in Project Pro, the levelling occurs immediatly.

    Is this a limitation of the web app?

    Thnx

    Jeff

  • Hi Jeff,

    What do you mean by "the leveling occurs immediatly"? The resource/project leveling is a feature in MS Project Pro only, this cannot be done is PWA. Do you mean that when you open the project in PRoject Pro, it is automatically leveled?

    That being said, in the "resource" tab of MS Project Pro, "leveling options", you can configure that the leveling calculations are automatic, which might be you case?


    Hope this helps,

  • Yep, thats it Guillaume, its the automatic leveling that occurs in Project Pro im referring to.

    So PWA wont do this leveling then ?

  • No, the web scheduling engine used by PWA has reduced capabilities. Thus PWA cannot perform resource leveling.
