Question: How can I best plan part-time resources or employees who can't use their full capacity for projects?
Answer: There are two ways to change resource capacities in the resource pool:
- If the capacity is stable, define a part-time calendar with the required capacity (e.g., 4 hours a day) under Calendars in the resource pool and assign it under Resources.
- If the capacity changes frequently, enter temporary capacity changes under Resources > Absences in the resource pool. In addition to absences with 0% capacity, you may also enter any other capacity values here, ranging from 0 to 100%.
Alternatively, you can create a "business as usual" project and allocate resources to that project to preallocate a part of their capacities. However, this project will then also be included in reports etc.
