Hi, i did this:
1) setup team
2) add team members
3) created the work generic resource, associated him with the same team name
My question is: Can i view availability of a generic resource ? (I think sum of all team members availability)
If i go to resource center the availability of generic resource is 0h (or negative number if i assign a work)

Generic resources are used for planning purposes and not such much for monitoring load. So the behavior is what I would expert.

Hello Michael, thanks for your answer.
I have this issue: There is about 25 long-term projects with specific resources and i´ll plan new project using team resources. I can´t recognize if my team has any free resources and also i can´t do resource leveling.
Exist any way to do this ?
Thursday, 15 July, 2010 10:58 AMHi, I'm having a similar problem too.
I've created a local resource (John) from MS Project, but when i save & publish to ProjServer 2010, it will save as Generic local resource instead of John .
Now i would like 2 retrieve all Task & resources assigned to a report, but i have tried on all the possible tables that might be used to store this information, what i can get is "generic local resource", where does "John" go?
But when i read the project using client tool (MS Project), John is there!!
Anyone has any idea?
