Clarizen cannot do this at the moment, and the main complication is that in order to do this the system may have to dramatically change projects across the organization and some of those projects may belong to other project managers. When we implement this type of functionality it will have to require some sort of approval system that would go through all of the stakeholders and confirm the scheduling impacts required to force a resource to be at 100% units across multiple projects.
Managing 100% resource efficiency in Clarizen
I'm currently trying to manage my team's resource load across multiple projects using Clarizen and have recently found that I spend all of my time breaking up project tasks into sub-tasks in order to be able to maintain 100% resource efficiency across all of the projects that we are currently running. Is there a way for Clarizen to automatically maintain 100% resource efficiency across all projects, in the same way that Fit to Unit does for a single project?
An example of the problem I am trying to solve, is we have a single resource with the following existing schedule:
Resource 1 - Day 1 - Day 2 - Day 3 - Day 4 - Day 5
Project 1 26% 26% 26% 26% 26%
Project 2 7% 14% 0% 0% 0%
Project 3 0% 0% 14% 14% 14%
Project 4 14% 14% 0% 0% 0%
Over the top of which, I am trying to schedule a new project that will use up all of the available time that this resource has for this week. Is there a way for me to do this simply, without having to break up each task of the new project to that they neatly fit into the days available? Effectively, a Fit To Unit across projects to achieve 100% resourcing?
Any help you can provide me will be greatly received,
