Proposed Task Assignment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, 

    I currently have a resource on Microsoft project that has some work proposed and other work committed. I cannot seem to use the "Booking Type" field at task level to enable me to reflect this (The resource is either all proposed or all committed).  Does anyone know I can achieve what I need?

  • Hi Sam,

    The booking type is per project, so the resource is either committed for the project, or proposed for the project.  The booking type is NOT per assignment.  What you want to do is not available out of the box.  You could create a task custom field and "roll it down" to the assignment level and use some custom reporting to perhaps provide what you need.

    Ditto on what Ben says.  What you could do is use generic resource for those assignments that are proposed.
