Duplicated resources on Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Creating a user when a respective resource already exists, results in a duplicated resource.                                                               

    This is a Project Online implementation based on Project Server permissions mode.

    Consider this scenario:

    1. There are 40 employees in the organization: 2 executives, a few project managers and the rest are team members. License for Project Online is purchased for only 10 employees.
    2. The PMO creates users for the 10 employees on Project Online:
      1. SharePoint users are created: Web AppàAdminàOffice 365àUsers and Groups
      2. Project Online users are created: Web AppàProjectsàPWA SettingsàManage usersàNew useràUser logon account: type SharePoint user; Mark: "User can be assigned as a resource"
    3. The PMO creates the other 30 employees as resources on Project Online on Enterprise Resource Pool.
    4. At this point, all 40 employees are resources on Project Online.
    5. After a while, additional 5 licenses are purchased. Steps 2.a and 2.b are performed for the respective employees.
    6. In this scenario, there are 5 employees who are duplicated on Resource Center, i.e. appear twice: one is a non-user resource, and the over is a user who is also a resource.

    How can I avoid the resources' duplication?

  • When employees are already present as ressource in Resource center then you need not to create new user for same employee.

    To avoid this situation 

    Open Resource center from PWA then Click on Resource to whom you want to make user then Click on Edit and then click on Associate Resource with user account then give AD account for reosurce and add to the group and click on same.

    Once you will do this your resource will also work as User and there will be not duplication.
