(PPM) Support Tip: Committing Selected Resources in Resource Finder
This is a new Resource Management Enhancement in PPM 9.32.0003
In previous versions, when you assign a resource to a position, the resource status is soft-booked. Starting from 9.32.0003, you can choose to commit assigned resource, that is, when a resource is assigned, the resource status becomes committed automatically.
Do the following to commit resources in resource finder: 1. Set the parameter ENABLE_COMMIT_RESOURCES_IN_RESOURCE_FINDER to true in Administration Console. It is false by default. Setting the parameter to true makes the option Commit selected resources available in the resource finder.
2. In the Staffing Profile New UI or Gantt View of Resource Allocations Management page, click the assign icon for a position to open the resource finder.
3. The option Commit selected resources appears only when there are resources available in the resource finder.
4. Select the resources to be assigned, and check the option Commit selected resources. If you want this option to be checked by default, set the parameter CHECK_COMMIT_RESOURCES_ IN_RESOURCE_FINDER to true in Administration Console. It is false by default. The setting of this parameter is only meaningful when you set the parameter ENABLE_COMMIT_RESOURCES_IN_ RESOURCE_FINDER to true.
5. Click Assign. The status of the assigned resources becomes committed.
