    I'm getting confused.  The only way to create a Resource Plan associated with an enterprise project is from PWA.  And if you deleted the enterprise project, re-imported it, and republished it, the original Resource Plan is now gone.  So, that was a big mistake deleting it.

    At this point, you will need to recreate the Resource Plan again for the enterprise project from the Project Center in PWA.  And you will need to publish the Resource Plan in PWA as well.  You CANNOT publish a Resource Plan from inside of Microsoft Project 2010, so stop asking how to do it that way because you cannot.

    Furthermore, you do not see hours from a Resource Plan in the Project Center page in PWA.  You can only see those hours in the View Availability page in PWA.  You have to select the resource included in the Resource Plan and then click the View Resource Availability button.  You should see the Resource Plan work hours listed for the project in question in the data grid at the bottom of the page.  Remember to select the date range for the work you defined in the Resource Plan as well.

    Beyond this, it would help if you explained exactly WHAT you are trying to do with your Resource Plan.  Please give us a little more information and we will try to help you.  Let us know.  Thanks!

    The Resource Plan is actually separate from the Microsoft Project plan, which means you must publish the Resource Plan independently of the enterprise project.  To do this, navigate to the Project Center page, click the light blue row header for the project, and then click the Resource Plan button.  You can publish the Resource Plan from there.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    Resource plan can be done using PWA and Build Team from enterprise can be done using PWA or Project Pro. Both are two different activities. If your question is actually, you want to build the resource plan and should get appear in PWA, then you have to select the project and build the resource plan and publish it in PWA only.

    Else, if your question is to identify the resources for your project activities, then use build team from enterprise and propose / commit the resources. Then publish the project from Project pro / PWA.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks

  • Hi Dale,

    When reading this thread, I saw your statement "You can only see those hours in the View Availability page in PWA."

    In the picture below, I show that the work entered in the resource plan is available in MSP by using the Resource View en by showing the other Projects and commitments...

  • What does it mean when you get the message "You will not be able to publish your Resource Plan until you publish the corresponding project schedule. You can publish the project schedule by navigating to the schedule page of the project and clicking on the "Publish Schedule" button."  How does this happen, when we only have a resource plan created? 
    Thanks.

    In order for users to see the resource allocation information in the Resource Plan, you must first publish it.  And you cannot publish the Resource Plan until you have published the project with which it is associated.  So, publish the project and then you can publish the Resource Plan.  Hope this helps.

  • We did do all that and the resource plan was working fine.  Then some edits were made and now it says they have to publish schedule again instead of just resource plan.

    Well, the software is telling you to publish the project again, so do so, and the republish the Resource Plan.  That is the best I can tell you, as this is how the software is designed.  Hope this helps.
