Where can I see the variances between allocations and actuals at a global level (other than the resource requisition portlet)?
Basically in many on the portlets which can display timescaled values you can choose or add both allocation and actuals. Eg. Resource wokrloads and weekly details. You can do that as a user in your personal view and you can put that on your person dashboard or on a custom tab on the overview page.
How are you looking to roll this up? role, obs, resource?
There's quite a few good crystal reports in the solution pack, otherwise as urmas says most portlets off the system providers can be configured to show both actuals and allocations.
I'm only getting a partial picture. I would like to be able to see, for
a given resource, all their allocations and all their actuals together,
and the overall variances. So far what I've been able to find is a
listing of all the resource's allocations, and then, for each allocation,
the actuals and the variance. But, if a resource worked on a project for
which they were not allocated, there are no actuals listed, and I need to
factor that into the total view of the resource's allocations vs. actuals.
But, if a resource worked on a project for which they were not allocated, there are no actuals listed
How is that possible? If a resource is not allocated to a project then that project or its tasks are not on the timesheet. So how are the actuals entered?
Some individuals are added to the team at a zero allocation on
support-type projects since the assignments are so random and
unpredictable from one week to the next. It is then possible for a
resource with zero allocation to enter time against the effort task.
