Resource Mgmt Request Field

We're currently using Demand Management for requests, but haven't configured Resource Management. We're looking at spinning up Resource Management to help with forecasting. Also to note is that we don't own Project Management. Here are a couple of (likely basic) questions:

1. Is it possible to key off a different field than "Assigned To:" to tie A request to a resources load?

2. Related to above, how can I assign multiple resources to a single request (NOT a task) and have the load reflect accurately in RM?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Patrick,

What version are you on? PPM 7.5 has this functionality included...more info in the 7.5 "What's New" guide, but there are now some new request type config options that allow your #2 above.

Yes... we are on 7.5 I'll take a look at the doc. Can you provide any direction for item 2?
