Until now, when using Capacity Planning, Project Managers were required to use staffing requests for all groups and wait for the Resource Manager to approve requests and assign work.
A new setting allows Project Managers to assign work directly on the Project for selected resourcing groups, bypassing the staffing requests/approvals process.
For organizations with varying staffing methods, you can decide which groups will require staffing requests, and for which groups the Project Manager can assign work directly.
How it Works
A new Staffing Request Required setting has been added on the user group level. To allow direct work assignment on the Project by the Project Manager, toggle the setting off.
The default setting is on (use staffing requests).
