Task: Monitor Allocations Across Projects, Actual Time Spent vs. Allocated Report

Suggested use: Monitor trending information for projects, and specifically to help determine if time allocations for projects are appropriate or need adjustment. Note: Only the owner of a Resource Pool can run this report.

Instructions:

Step 1 - Go to Applications Menu > Resource Management.

Step 2 - If you own a Resource Pool, select Manage Allocations in the left-hand navigation bar. 

Step 3 - Select the green Filter button.

Step 4 - Supply criteria:

    a. Date Range.
    b. Choose whether to display allocations by Months or Weeks.
    c. Select Resource Pool (you may also choose to use Functional Role or select a Person).
    d. Leave the default at Active Projects.
    e. Suggest choosing Scheduled, Actual, and Variance "Columns".

Step 5 - Select green Apply button.
 

Interacting with the data

  • Review allocations.

  • If input boxes exist in the scheduling area, this means you may model suggested changes to balance workload. If you Save those changes, it will either send a request to the Manager of the project to approve that change, or go ahead and make the changes.

  • Project Managers choose whether or not they are allowing allocation changes on their projects, and whether those changes require approval. The recommendation is that Project Managers generally would not allow changes to allocations, and if they decide to do so that they would approve those changes. It is not recommended that Project Managers allow allocation changes without approval.

  • You may also model shifting the allocation of a resource to a project forward or backward.

 

Outcome

You are now seeing the Actual Time Spent vs. Allocated Report.
