Proposals & Assets doesnt show up in Analyze assignment load portlet

Hello,

Version 7.1 - SP5
While doing some analysis, I see that the 'Analyze Assignment Load Porltet' doesnt show up hours logged to Proposals & Assets. Logically, this doesn't seem right.
These RTs are configured as work loads.

Please let me know if Iam missing something.

Regards,
Aravinth

Hi.
If Proposal Request Header Type you need add graup field "Work Item Fields".
In Asset you need use "Staffing Profiles"
Good Luck

Hi Semenov,

I had already done that. I have added these two RTs (proposal & Asset) as workloads by adding the field group - "Wok Item Fields". Also these two RTs have the respective field groups enabled - "PFM - Proposal" & "PFM - Asset"

Staffing profile is a part of the "PFM" field groups.

To clarify: the planned values show up but not the actuals.
I have attached a screen shot for better understanding.

Aravinth,

I do not believe that the Analyze Assignment Load portlet is meant to show actuals for proposals and assets. It will show the scheduled for these two requests, however the actuals only come from projects.

I think this was by design in 7.1 because in the "what's new in 7.5" document:

Tracking Actuals to Assets
Time is now rolled up to the staffing profile of an asset, similar to how time is rolled up to the staffing profile for a work plan. This allows time logged against assets to be reflected in the actual effort in HP Portfolio Management and its related portlets and reports, resulting in more accurate accounting of the effort expended on the maintenance of an asset, and actual resource utilization.

Hi Krupa,

Thanks for the information.

Yes. Its by design in 7.1 , but its a logical problem because it has show actuals either for all entities or for none. Part of it doesnt make sense.

May be look forward for an enhancement in 7.5.
