    resource cross hatch (Project 2003 & Web Access)

    I have a question on resource allocation. I've seen the other posts, it's a popular subject!

    I've been asked to make some kind of cross-hatch table to identify all our resources and where they're booked. This means working across projects, so I assume I'd handle this in Web Access. I tried a stab at the OLAP cube (all new to me) but it appears we don't have one built yet, or I don't have permissions, but I granted myself all roles, so I don't see how that would apply. As you can see, I'm at the reins of this big horse, and it's kind of cool, but I'm getting trotted around the ring!

    Thanks,
    Naomi

    Naomi,

    Depending on how you want to view the resource allocations you might start by looking at the Resource Usage or the Task Usage views. The Resource Usage view is organized by resource and the Task Usage is organized by Tasks. If you want something printed go to View Reports and select the Workload category. You will see the reports that you can print similar to Resource or Task Usage. If you need different timeframes like by the month then you would have to create a custom report or change the timescale in the view. This is all assuming you are using a resource pool for all the projects.

    Carla,

    I looked for resource usage and the only place I could find it was in a single particular project at a time in Project Manager. I'm not sure how I can find resource usage across multiple projects.

    Thanks!

    Are you using a resource pool to assign resoruces to your individual projects? I am not sure how Project Server shows resources from a pool in the individual projects. If you look at your resource sheet view are you seeing all the pool resources or only a portion of the resources?

    I have a method to pull the resources I need for the time being: Web Access, Resources, View Resource Assignments... may be all I need. Thanks for your help Carla.
