Enterprise Nodal Structure, Resource Role Capacity

Enterprise Nodal Structure window (Home > ENS). 
  • A Set Calendar option has been added to the Ribbon Menu. You can now select a global calendar you can use for cross-project resource capacity and demand analysis so you have a common set of calendar periods for all projects. You set this once for the ENS. This global calendar is only used for the ENS resource capacity settings, the project specific calendars are unchanged.
  • Edit ENS Node, resource role Capacity tab. When you set a calendar for the ENS, a Capacity by Period column is included in the Capacity tab. You can use this column to set custom resource role capacities for specific accounting periods. For example, the quantity may change to reflect seasonal changes in available personnel. The default is the capacity you set for the role (Capacity column entry).
