  1. Adding Position Role to Engagement Information

    Problem: We are running into an issue where a resource can fulfill multiple roles, but the resource can only be assigned one position role in PWA.

    For example, a generic resource request for a Business Analyst is submitted by the Project Manager. The Resource Manager replaces the generic resource request with a name resource, Bob. Bob's position role in PWA is of a Project Manager and not a Business Analyst. However, Bob will be acting as the Business Analyst for this project.

    • Resource Availability for Zero Max Units Computed using Resource Calendar

      Currently, when resources have zero max units, the resources' FTE values calculate based on seven day weeks rather than the resource calendar.

      Please change the calculation methodology to use the resource calendar.

          • Ability to Temporarily Disable Workflow Controlled Fields

            Workflow required fields prohibit the ability to “skip” projects to workflow stages, such as Complete or Canceled, because projects will stop in stages where fields are required. This essentially eliminates the benefit of the skip to stage feature.

            It would be great to give administrators the ability to temporarily disable workflow controlled fields in order to skip projects to a specified stage.
