Booking Type RRS feed

  • Question

  • My project has completed and I would like to change the resource Booking Type from committed to proposed. However, when I attempt to do this in the Resource SHeet view, the drop down to change from Committed to proposed is grayed out and it does not allow me to change it. Why is this and how do I change it?

    Thank you!

  • Hi Jaco,

    I am not 100% sure but I think this is because if like you said the project is completed and progress is recorded Project will think that these resources are already commited to the project. This might explain why you cannot set it back to proposed.

    The question I want to ask you is why would you want to change the booking type of a resource from commited to proposed when your project is completed?

    With Kind Regards,

  • Hi Robin,

    Thank you for your response. Firstly, when I change the booking type from Committed to Proposed, the project name wil not be displayed in the resource availability view in the resource centre on Project Server. Secondly, the project is required to remain on the Published database in Project Server for capitalisation reasons, but it should no longer be displayed under an allocated resource's name in the availablilty view in Resource Centre. I will change the project status back from completed and try to change the booking type before altering the project phase to completed. Unless there is another method I should use? I thought it was best practoce to change booking type once the project is completed?

    I look forward to your response.

    Thank you.

  • Just check by double clicking on the resource name in Resource sheet view. It will display a Resource Information dialog box. In general tab, can you change the Booking type from Commited to proposed?

  • Jaco --
    You can change the Booking value for each resource in the Build Team dialog.  Hope this helps.

  • If it is a migrated project from 2007 to 2010 , and BCM mode is disabled in Project Server 2010 - make sure project is not in compatibility mode. ie upgrade eglobal ( ,  save and Publish the project from Project Pro 2010.

    Thanks --Ajith
