The Apply Task Assignment feature in the Resource Planning screen enables Resource Managers or Team Leads managing assignments to mirror people’s aggregate Task Assignment on a Project (the lower total row) to Project Assignment (the upper total row).
This feature, previously available in the user interface, can now be used in Configurations (except Workflow rules).
Get a more accurate picture of Project assignments in the Capacity planning module, by applying task assignments to Projects. This is especially useful when not using staffing requests in your workflow.
How it Works
In the Set Actions window, a new Apply Task Assignment option is available.
This example shows a custom action that applies task assignments on the Project when the start date is before today, from the Project's start date to today.
Note: The action applies to all users assigned to the tasks in the projects. You cannot select specific users.
