Resource Management Tool

I'm looking at how I can migrate project plans (Omniplan) into Smartsheet to then use the resource management element to see people's capacity and adjust the schedule to smooth delivery. Has anyone done something similar or have any learnings they can share with me please?

Also, attached is a screenshot of the resourcing data Im trying to replicate in Smartsheets. On the left hand side of the image are resource groups and names and on the right, shows the tasks they’re assigned to and their capacity (over or under) and where capacity is exceeded (highlighted in red). The element I can’t replicate is how can I see tasks associated with someone’s capacity in Smartsheet? I can see where they are over/under capacity but not specifically what they’re working on unless I click into each plan and find their specific tasks. The reason the view in Omniplan is helpful is we can see tasks and capacity across the full team so we can re-assign tasks without having to click in and out of screens.


Let me know if anyone has any suggestions on this. Not sure if the current resource management tool in Smartsheet will provide what I'm trying to achieve?

    Hi,

    There is another Smartsheet Solution/Integration, 10,000ft that can provide you with much more Resource Management features. 

    Is that an option?

    More info: 


    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Hi Andrée thank you for your pointer here to 10000ft - I believe this is really useful and I heard the plan is to eventually integrate this into the main Smartsheet platform rather than as a premium add on?

    Unfortunately, due to budget constraints at my organisation, 10000ft is not something we are able to consider at the moment.

    Would you be aware of any workaround without 10000ft?

    Any further assistance with this would be much appreciated.

    Happy to help!

    Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any workaround. I'll get back to the post if I think of something.
