in what scenario does the allocation of a user becomes uneditable? I want to edit this 25% but unable to do so. There are no actuals posted.
Under the default allocation %, change it to 0, and save - do let us know if it works
Changing to 0 changed 25 to 0 in the row. But row is still uneditable
Add a new record "below" the existing one and you should see how it works - the screen is just showing you what you have entered.
As you tested, the uneditable line corresponds to the default allocation%. To change it , you need to edit the default allocation%.
If you want to edit it to a different value however, you can create a new record with the same dates and change the allocation%.
Here is what I tested:
Once I save this, here is what I see:
As you can see this row is now editable.
Hope this helps.
In what scenario / missing access that the new button to create a new row is not visible and some fields on this page are also read only?
Would be whether the user has the relevant booking rights (against the resource being allocated)
Everything is fine access wise, its just that the screen is appearing as read only (No new row option)
If your logged on user does not have hard-booking access rights over the resource being displayed on that screen, then the logged on user will not be able to change the allocation (i.e. update the information on that screen)
I tried to reproduce with same access as user but for me it is editable. Chnaging the booking from Soft to Hard, made that field uneditable but not others. It is mentioned in the comments (Read only if any pending requisitions). I think this may have something to do with it. Where can I check the pending requisitions?
Also another finding is that when I changed the booking status for affected user to soft from hard (using my admin access), for the affected user the page becomes editable.
Soft and hard booking are separate access rights ; different users may have different rights (all possibly obtained in different ways)
It can get quite complicated (the various ways that allocations can be made between "resource managers" and "project managers" for example), so I don't think there is one "simple answer" that I can give to you to explain your situation, just "clues" as to what you can look at to understand it - if you have a complex resourcing model (eg using requisitions then it gets even more complicated).
All I can say is that if a user has the correct rights then they can change data on that screen, if they do not then they can not. (which doesn't hep you much!)
