All,  I have a question for all of you who are using mixed booking status... do you find it useful? We are using it in my organization and it is causing confusion. Many of the PMs who manage projects are confused by this status. I know that one solution would be education  on the tool and processes. I'm wondering how useful the concept of mixed booking is though.  We currently don't  have the Clarity Resource Requisition workflow turned on. We are getting our processes defined so that when we turn it on, everyone is educated on what to do and will be able to successfully execute their resource requests. Does mixed booking require more work when the requisition process is turned on?  Our goal is to compare forecast allocations with actual usage so that we can improve our forecast. Do any of you use mixed booking in that process?  Thanks
