Resource Reactivation in Project Server 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a query in resource reactivation:

    For example: Four resources are available in resource pool(i.e. i have added them and changed their status to inactive), after sometime i would like to activate them.

    So, i selected the resources in the Resource Center and open MS Project and included "Inactive" field and changed the value to "NO" and saved it.

    Now i checked their status is "Active", but the resources are not able to log into PWA.

    But if i activate them(individually) in "Manage Users" page, they can access PWA.

    Can anyone tell me why it is not working if i do that via MS Project?

  • What you're running into is the difference between a resource and a user.
     A resource may be assigned to a task.  A user may login.
     
    The behavior you're observing is correct.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am asking about the users, if i select them in Resource Center and activate them through Project Professional they can't login PWA, but if i do via Manage Users they can login PWA
