Setting default parameters for Resource Plans RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hola,

    I have two quick and simple questions related to the default settings in Resource Plans. We extensively use of resource plans and these will be simplify our verification tracking procedures.

    First one: 

    Is there a way to set as default the Resource Utilization parameter to be Resource Plan (instead of Project Plan) ?

    Second One:

    Is there an internal date we can use to determine when a Resource Plan was last published?  

    There's one for Proeject Plan, but cannot find one for Resource Plans publishing.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Regards,

    OMER

  • No to both, sorry.

    There is not a way to set the defaults for resource plans.

    I know of no "Resource Plan Published" date. The best you could do would be to have the PM update a Project level custom field when they change the resource plan.

    Sorry.

  • Thank you Brian.

    I was afraid that was the case about the parameters. However, the way it is today gives place to many mistakes and makes debugging somhow difficult.

    As for the date, it's so obvious that date is needed that I wonder why MS has left that out. We've tried the manual process you suggest, but again, that gives the ooportunity to miss it and then you have to check it reguarly.
