  • 1.  Adding resources while in a scenario

    Posted 01-27-2017 11:40 AM

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if it is possible, while in a scenario, to add resources? I'm not able to but I am hoping it is just a weird security setting I'm not seeing. Here is an example for context:

    Resource John has 2 projects he is on full time: Project A, January-March, and Project B, April-June.

    Project A is delayed, so I want to see if there's a way we can still start Project B on time, and have John continue to work on Project A.

    I create a scenario and include project A and B in it. I open the Team Detail view for Project B. I would like to see the impact of adding a second resource, Mary, to the project. However when I'm in the scenario, the Add button isn't present. Is this "by design" or am I missing something?

    If scenarios only allow users to update existing resources, it seems very limiting. For instance, I would think that "let's throw a consultant on this" would be a popular scenario, which would require adding resources.

    I believe that your feature is not a supported function. We could see how we can add www.advanced-resource-planning.com to portfolios and maybe that would suit your desired functionality...

    Hi

     

    This is "by design". Of course, there always room for improvement. I'd suggest to log an "Idea" in that CA PPM community with your user story.
