Resource management and parent/child hierarchy

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts



I've created a sheet with a list of projects (the name is the parent).  The child rows contain the team members name (assigned to column), allocation %, role, etc.  I've got the sheet working to where the red man shows on the rows where there is a resource issue.  Unfortunately that only seems to apply to the child row......which means I have to expand every parent to see if there is an issue on the project.  Is there a way for the parent row to reflect a resourcing issue so I can then expand on the project name only if flagged?

    Hi Kneve27-- Currently, overallocation indicators will only appear in the rows that they apply to--in this case, your child rows. I've added your vote to have these values roll up to parent rows to our enhancement request list and our developers will consider this for a future update. We appreciate your input!

    That would be quite useful.

    Add my vote.


    Even being able to filter the special columns (resource view, comments, attachments, etc..) would be a step in the right direction, imo.
