Resource Management for part-time resources
I'm trying to work out how to do resource management for part-timers. There are two parts to my conundrum:
1. I'd like to be able to set up resources as (for example) 80% FTE (so they only work 4 days/week).
2. I'd like Smartsheet to understand that 100% allocation for such a resource = 4 days, not 5, or 50% allocation = 2 days, not 2.5. So if I had a part-timer allocated for 5 days/week, they would be flagged as over-allocated.
I haven't had any luck finding a solution, and as far as I can tell the only way to do this would be to set each resource up in the vacation sheet with their weekly days off as vacation days. This seems unnecessarily complex so I'm wondering if I've missed a simpler solution. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
