Rename RBS - Considerations RRS feed

  • Question

  • When there is restructuring in your organization ... I want to be sure I'm considering the pros/cons of renaming part of the RBS vs. adding a new "department".

    Example:

    Format is Company.Department.Team Leader.Team Member

    MyCompany.Support.TeamLeader.TeamMember needs to change to MyCompany.Software Support.TeamLeader.Team Member - is this ok to rename Support to Software Support?

    Things I should think about?  Thank you.

  • Hi,

    you can rename whatever you want. Moreover, you can intend, outtend and move. Just make sure, that you are not changing anything by deleting a line and re-entering. Behind each line, there is a unique identifier. And this identifier is linked to a resource. So while just renaming and changing position using buttons in user interface, this identifier is kept and RBS value will be updated for each resource accordingly.

    Hope that helps

  • Thanks Barbara -

    I am aware of the unique identifier with tasks, assignments and resources - but good to have the reminder for RBS as well.
