Multiple Projects (Resource Pool)

Multiple Projects (Resource Pool)

Multiple Projects (Resource Pool)


I am hoping someone can assist me, after reading the forum im hopeful someone can.

My Question:    I want to create a 'Master Project' which will be the 'Resource Pool'  - this will hold all the resource information that other projects can link into.

I need to then know how to link as many projects to this master copy as possible.  (This is so all projects linked use this for resource allocation) - so for example staff wages can be monitored or what staff are on what job).

In summary, I want to know how to create the master project and link others to this, so resources can be allocated and monitored.

If anyone can show me how this is done, I would be very greatful.

Thanks in Advance.

RE: Multiple Projects (Resource Pool)

If anyone has the spare time to assist me with the above question, that would be great...I need to try build this quite soon.

Thanks if anyone can :)

RE: Multiple Projects (Resource Pool)

Probably a bit late now but have you tried using the "Share resources" option? (Tools|Share Resources). You will have to do it for each project but once done it will give you a view of the resources across the whole portfolio of projects.
