The dialog remains open with all field values intact except the Name field which is cleared and has the insertion point. This allows quick and easy entry of multiple resources with the same skill and default capacities for a given node on the OBS tree.
You can enter a generic discipline in the Name field rather than a specific person. This is useful when dealing with a group of functionally interchangeable resources. Capacity for a generic resource may be greater than 1.
It is not necessary to create resources with a skill name, e.g. “EE”. The application permits creation of skill assignments on projects even if there is no such resource. The only reason to create generic “skill” resources is if they are truly interchangeable and will never need to be assigned or tracked by name.
