In testing various project plans in MS Project Server 2007, weve found that the Work numbers on the Resource Usage view arent correct for the other projects on the server. Ive done some looking and found the three postings below. Can you tell me if there is a fix for this yet or if there is one planned? Given the size of our department, opening all the plans the resources are in isnt going to be a reasonable solution. If there isnt a fix or a planned fix, do you have any suggestions on how to get the total resource allocation / availability information? Keep in mind that we dont plan on letting Project do the resource leveling for us; we just want to know who is over allocated so we can have the discussions on how to best resolve the issues.
Id like to make sure I understand the issue with the Resource Usage view. When we open up a project plan (that has been published on the server) and look at the other projects on the view, the Work numbers dont look correct. To me, this means that I cant really tell if someone is over allocated or not. Is my understanding correct?
Here are the posts I found:
The ability to determine over allocations and availability is a huge piece of our project so I would greatly appreciate any help or direction you could offer.
