Creating a resource pool
11
Under Resources for ‘Consolidating B’ , select the Use resources option.
The Use Resources From list contains the open plans that can be used as a resource
pool.
12
In the From box, click Lucerne Resource Pool .
13
Click OK to close the Share Resources dialog box.
You see the resource information from the Consolidating B plan appear in the
Lucerne Resource Pool plan. Next, you will set up the Consolidating A plan as a sharer
plan with the same resource pool.
14
Click the title bar of the Consolidating A window.
15
On the Resource tab, in the Assignments group, click Resource Pool , and then click
Share Resources .
16
Under Resources for ‘Consolidating A’ , click the Use resources option.
17
In the From list, make sure that Lucerne Resource Pool is selected.
Lucerne Resource Pool is selected by default. The Consolidating A plan is already a
sharer plan, and Project won’t allow a sharer plan to be a resource pool for another
plan.
18
Under On conflict with calendar or resource information , make sure that the Pool
takes precedence option is selected.
Selecting this option causes Project to use resource information (such as cost rates)
in the resource pool rather than in the sharer plan, if it finds any differences between
the two plans.
19
Click OK to close the Share Resources dialog box.
You see the resource information from the Consolidating A plan appear in the
resource pool.
