    Anyone use project server 2010 to perform portfolio management?

    Can a resource be assigned multiple skills?

    Charles,

    Is Project Server 2010 used for Project Portfolio Management? Yes. Is there more to the question? PPM is one of the primary uses of Project Server.

    Can multiple Skills be assigned to a resource? Yes. A resource Enterprise Custom Field must be created that allows multiple values. The Custom Attributes section for a Skills field for Project Server 2010 is shown below. Once the field is created, when a resource is updated multiple skills may be selected by checking the box next to each desired skill.

    Custom Attributes

    Choose whether the field has a lookup table, a calculated formula, or neither.


    None
    Single line of text
    Multiple lines of text

    Lookup TableCharge CodeCost TypeDepartmentHealthRBSSample Areas ImpactedSample Primary ObjectiveSkills and CapabilitiesTeamsTimesheet Normalization Status
         Choose a value to use as a default when adding new items
    Default value
                                
         Only allow codes with no subordinate values
    Allow multiple values to be selected from lookup table
         Use this field for matching generic resources


    Formula

    I typically check the “Only allow codes with no subordinate values” option. And for skills I always check the “Use this field for matching generic resources option.

    Charles,

    The check boxes I pasted into the last post did not appear in the post. So the text looks rather odd. For the Resource custom field settings just look at Settings and add a new resource Enterprise Custom Field. The setting to allow multiple values should then be obvious, just check the checkbox next to Allow multiple values to be selected from lookup table.
