User resources and group resources

When allocating resources, a resource manager may need to add a user or a group. By default, resource managers do not inherit the user_admin role that is required to create users and groups. Work with an administrator to create users or groups of the type pps_resource.

Resource Manager view

The Resource Manager view in Resource Management > Resources > Users lists only the users who have the pps_resource role. Apart from some of the fields explained in the User Administration > UsersUsers form, the following fields are displayed only in the Resource Manager View > Users form and are editable only by user who has the resource_manager role:
  • Location
  • Schedule
  • Timesheet Policy
  • Average Daily FTE Hours/Hours Per Person Day

The Resource Manager view in Resource Management > Resources > Groups lists only the groups who have the pps_resource role. Although resource managers have write access to several fields, the only fields that they should edit is Average Daily FTE Hours/Hours Per Person Day and Hourly rate.
