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 > Resources > Users lists only the users who have the pps_resource role. In addition to some of the fields displayed in the User Administration > Users form, the Resource Manager View > Users form also displays the following fields, which are editable only by a user who has the resource_manager role:
  • Location
  • Schedule
  • Timesheet Policy
  • Average Daily FTE Hours/Hours Per Person Day
    Note: Use the Update Resource Capacity related link to specify a date range. User capacity is populated in all the aggregate tables based on the schedule of the user.

The Resource Manager view in Resource > 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.
