    HI Team


    can anyone tell me whats the target allocation in clarity?

    i searched in Resource management user guide and Project management user guide but no luck. i am seeing some of the resources in clarity with 0% and some with 100% target allocation.

    i just want to know how it differs from allocation.

    Please let me know if you need any more details.

    Looks like custom field or re-purposed existing field. Could you go to Configure > List Column Section > Fields > Properties and share screenshot?

    Another way to look at that is in the attribute list. If the database table is ODF_CA_RESOURCE it is a custom field.

    I have not seen this attribute so looks like custom field. Could you confirm source of this field? Go to Administration > Objects > Resource > Attributes and confirm table name for this attribute? If it's ODF_CA_RESOURCE than it confirms a custom attribute.

    HI DJV,


    Thanks a lot for your help. yes this is a custom field and i got the definition for this:

    It is the desired percentage of a resources available time to be allocated to projects.   It is not calculated, it is set.  It is used in other calculations pertaining to allocations. There are only 2 values that been set for this field they are 0% and 100%. Departments that do not track allocations in Clarity will have a 0% setting. sorry for the delayed response, i was out of office for 3 days.
