Use Resources AND calculate dates?

Jeana ✭✭✭✭✭✭

I'm looking for a workaround for this. I understand that with recourses turned on I can't put formulas in the Start and End Date. I have other columns that I'm using with formulas to calculate dates that I need. Is there any way to use Resources and have it reflect calculated dates on a sheet?

    Hi Jeana,

    Currently it's an either-or situation...

    Either you can have your own custom Start and End date columns that you can use formulas in separate from Resource Management,


    You enable Resource Management which uses its own special type of Start and End date columns that cannot have formulas.

    The way I think of it is that the Resource Management capability is a type of formula in the background, so this takes up the ability to input a second formula. You can read more about formula restrictions in our Help Center, here.
