unable to add myself as a resource for one project

I am unable to add myself as a resource for one project. When I pull up the request I see no resource pools whatsoever.This is causing a couple of my tasks to show as exceptions.Can any one suggest the anomaly in this.
Thanks in advance..

Are you listed as the project manager for the project?

Request the project manager of the project to add your name as a resource.

Hi Tarun,

I am not able to see the snapshot.
but here is my suggestion.

For a PM to add resource to a project workplan, the resource should be in the staffing profile of the project.

Tarun,

the screenshot you sent means that there is no resource pool assigned to the staffing profile positions mentioned in there.

Sangiliraja,

assigning resources is also possible if the project manager is also resource pool manager (this was the case for some customers).

Nisha,

in PPM7.5 it is (again) possible to delegate work plan summary task to specific individuals in order to define the schedule, dependencies AND resources.

cheers,
alex
