Generic Resource Capacity / Avail RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With project online generic resources, what is the best approach to using them, then having the capacity reduce?

    For example, if we had 10 'Developer' resources, and 2 got put on a task for a week, we would like to see in another project afterwards that 8 are available during that week?

  • Hello,

    Define your generic resources into the resource center, either one resource with 1000% or 10 resources with 100%, then assign those busy either to a project plan (assigned to tasks) or using resource plan (Project Server 2013 or before) or resource engagement (new on Project Online) to book them.

    Then on the capacity report, you can measure capacity and availability.
