    I need to know about the "Project Manager" in a new project.

  • As per your reply i am assuming you are using Workflow. In this case once Manager- director will approve the proposal as per 2.2 approval need to build the team .

    It means approval need to build the team and approve it once he will approve it then use who has propose the project will assign resource to the tasks and save and publish the project plan. If in this step user want to change the project owner or after this step any point of time then he can do it easily.

  • It totally depends on your organization process.

    Normally PMO creates project, build team,assign resources to tasks, then while save and  publish the projec assign Project manager as owner for the project plan.

    If you have Resource manager in your organization then he can build the team for the project publish it then PMO or project manager can assign the resource to the task then save and publish the plan. 

    IF project manager has idea about resources then he can also build the team and assign resource to the task.

    Note :- once PMO or resource manager build the team and publish the project then Project owner need to open the project plan add new field in the plan STATUS MANAGER and select his name for all task for which he will give the approval to the actual of the task send by resources.

    By default who ever will create project act as STATUS MANAGER for all the task.

  • thanks (thousand times) Kirtesh :)

    In my org, I have four type of users: Director - Managers - Team Leads - Team Members. Maybe later I will need to assign the role of "Resource Manager" to the Managers or Team Leads.

    The vary basic scenario i have:

    1- User (team member or team lead) may propose a new project.

    2- The higher level user (Manager - Director) will approve/ reject proposal.

    2.1- If the proposal is approved, the approver will build the team and assign the PM.

    2.2- If the proposal is rejected, the one who propose it will get a notification.

    I am sorry for my basic questions as i am still at the vary beginning steps. Currently i am looking for video trainings that may help fill the basic gaps i have.

  • Hey,

    For tasks where you need a lot of resources assigned, it’s best to make your assignments, and make changes to those assignments, in the Task Information dialog box.

    1. With the task selected, click Task > Properties > Information
    2. On the Resources tab, you can assign a longer list of resources to the task, without running into that 256 character limit on the Resource Names column

    Regards
