Hello,

I was looking under my activity log and noticed the above for sheet view, but I'm not sure who that is and the purpose of it. Can someone please explain what they do, please? Thanks!

    Hi @Nkeiruka. Aguocha,

    It sounds like the sheet you're working in is a Project Sheet that has Resource Management connected to it, and you're using the Resource Management Panel in Smartsheet to sync your data. This integration will use the Resource Management API to connect the two systems.

    Cheers,

    Genevieve

    Hi @Genevieve P.

    "Resource Management Synchronization - API" appeared in the activity log on at least one of my sheets on 2/5, 2/6, and 2/8. The sheet was created in October 2022 by Save As New from another sheet. Both are basic grid sheets.

    What caused this and how do I track it down?

    Hi @ker9

    You should no longer see the “Resource Management Synchronization” message in the Sheet Activity log, after February 9th, 1:18 pm PST.

    I found out, after the original post, that our team was working on a feature related to Resource Management (RM); at the time of a sheet-save, RM was checking if it had been turned on in the Project Settings for that sheet. No sheet data was impacted and the Product team has rolled back this specific change until it has been refined and combined with a different future release.

    Cheers!

    @Genevieve P. - Seems to be happening again. “Resource Management Synchronization” message in the Sheet Activity log today at 9:55:31 and 9:59:49 AM EST. New sheet created today from existing template.

    ETA: Found on a different sheet at 11:22 AM today. Further research found this on multiple sheets.

    WHY?

    Hi @ker9

    Same thing as last time. 🙂

    No sheet data is impacted at all; the team is working on a new feature and this element was enabled during testing. You should no longer see a “Resource Management Synchronization” message in the Sheet Activity log after March 1st, ~10 am PST.

    Cheers,
