Steps to Allocate Team Members


Team Member Allocation displays the number of open requests for all the projects across the enterprise. Both the Project Manager and Resource Manager can view the total number of requests and allocations against each persona upfront. Each request includes information such as the type of persona, requested hours, duration, % of the time required (whether the resource is required for 100% of the time or 50% of the time), skills, etc.

The resource manager can allocate users based on the availability, priority, scope of the request, requests from other projects, etc.

Note: This screen is only accessible to the resource manager persona.
