Best Way to Track Non-Project Task Assignments RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have been banging my head against the wall these past few days and was hoping to get some advice regarding the tracking of non-project work. Our company is a bit unique in how it assigns tasks:

    • We have two project files - "Project Work" and "Non-project Work"
    • Individuals who have completed assigned tasks in "Project Work" are considered to be eligible for non-project work assignments
    • Non-project work tasks can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks and are manually assigned
    • However, project work always trumps non-project work, so, for example, if an individual was on a non-project task and they were needed for project work, the non-project task would get put on hold and the resource would get re-assigned

    As of right now, we have a report that shows resource availability based on the Finish (resource) field. However, ideally we'd like to see both the finish date of the individual's project tasks (to inform eligibility for a new project assignment) and the finish date of non-project tasks (to inform eligibility for a new non-project assignment).

    Any advice would be much appreciated! Happy to provide additional context as necessary.
