Resource Engagements is a recently introduced feature in Project Online, and also Project Server 2016. In a typical organization, resource managers and project managers find it challenging to agree on and assign resources for specific projects and tasks. With no clear way to track who is working where, who is over-allocated—and with crossed lines of communication, things can start to break down.
Resource Engagements aims to clear the confusion and help streamline this process.
This session will cover Resource Engagements feature set in detail, and will try to answer the questions like:
• How are Resource Engagements different from Resource plans
• What will happen to my resource plans if I start using Resource Engagements?
• How can I use Resource Engagements for Support Work?
• Will Resource Engagements and Portfolio Analysis work together
• How can I report on Resource Engagements?
