Resource Management

ID #1100

Manage resources across organizations and projects

Managing resources focuses on three main areas which are resource allocation, resource availability planning and utilization of resources. To manage a resource efficiently, the resource manager needs to monitor resource workloads, know the pipeline projects and resolve over or under allocations (workload leveling) in a resource pool. The quality of resource management will be measured in terms of proper adjustment of resource capacity, the utilization of resources and the equal spread of workload across resources.

Project.net offers advanced features for resource management like collaboration, inviting other users from different business into your business, adding resources to different projects under business workspace and viewing resource assignments across multiple projects. These features help you to analyze the resource workload across multiple projects, you can shift resources, add/remove resources as per the workload and requirement. Project.net consolidates multiple projects and provides a holistic view of all projects at a time.

Invite users to a project (Add/remove users)

Project.net provides you an easy way to add resources to any business and project. You can simply invite members whom you want to add to a project. You can also invite multiple members at a time.

No, there is no sound, see paragraph two. :O The view shows inoincmg and outgoing resource changes and how they're handled (committed or ignored).I don't think it's a good idea to make a live.eclipse.org posting when the code isn't even in CVS.
