Over allocated resources, no red flag alert

Answered - Pending Review

I allocated 100% allocation for the same resources in both projects as an example, projects CMDB and GXP Shutdown. How come I didn't see the red flag in column "Risk" to indicate that the resources are over allocated.

Please help.

    Hi Kathryn,

    Has it worked before?

    Are both sheets enabled to use Resource Management in the Project Settings?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    I am having the same issue. I have over allocated resources and the red over allocated indicator does not appear in the row action indicator column for the over allocated task. In resource view, the resource does have the over allocation indicator, but that is pretty much useless if I have to manually scroll through 75 tasks to find out where the over allocation is.

    You can see above, this resource is over allocated for the week of June 16. The indicator appears before his name in the Resource View. However, as circled on the project plan, no indicator appears next to the over allocated tasks.

    I am running into this exact issue currently as well. Has there been any resolution?

  • Hi @Tisha Charles and @David Dolch

    I would suggest contacting Smartsheet Support at this point, providing them with screen captures and the sheet names so that they can look into this further with you.

  • Same issue in late November.

    Having the same issue. I did some testing and it seems that the red alert icon for resource over-allocation in the "row action indicators" will only appear of the resource is over allocated for at least 4 days. If the resource is over-allocated for only 1-3 days it does not trigger the alert. Is this by design?

    See screenshots showing example.
