Hello! I’m trying to automatically level a resource across multiple projects.
As an example case, I would like to have 2 projects, with 1 resource. The resource’s total units should be 100% split across both projects. However, the units should not necessarily be split 50/50%, but rather given the best splitting based on the tasks and their priorities/availability/etc. Basically, I would like the same kind of leveling I would get from putting all the tasks into a single project, but keeping the projects separate. Is this kind of cross project leveling possible?
I attempted using the instructions here, but this does not seem to automatically level across projects. I assume this is because the resource is given 100% units within each project. Of course, it’s possible I’m just missing some setting to enable the cross project leveling. I have each project publishing and subscribing to the same repository, and the resource has a unique identifier (the multi-project dashboard shows conflicting over allocation for that resource).
Is this kind of automatic cross project leveling possible? Or does per project unit allocation/scheduling need to manually specified? Or perhaps, am I just not properly enabling the cross project balancing? Thank you for your time!
