  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to setup the different resource booking type (Proposed or Committed) for an individual projects?

    If Yes, how it will impact on reporting?

  • Badal --

    Yes, it is possible to set the Booking Type value for each resource on a project by project basis.  Open an enterprise project and check it out for editing.  Display the Build Team dialog and add resources to your project team.  On the right side of the dialog, you will see the Booking value for each of your team members.  This is one place where you can set the Booking Type value for each team member.  The alternative is to add the Booking Type value to the Resource Sheet view of a project.

    How does this impact reporting?  If you are talking about the default reporting capabilities of Project Online, the Resource Planning page in PWA shows only Committed assignments by default.  The ribbon includes a checkbox option, however, to display Proposed assignments as well.  If you are creating your own Project Online reports, you will want to include an option to display Committed assignments, or Committed and Proposed assignments.

    Hope this helps.
