Selecting and Editing Views on Assignment Pages

Selectable views on the assignment page (and other grid type pages) define which columns (fields) are visible and which are hidden.

There is a unique set of defined fields (called native fields in this documentation) associated with each of the ResourceFirst primary objects: Projects, Resources, and Assignments. The views for each object provide access to the native fields for the object.

Assignment views also provide access to project and resource fields. These so-called mapped fields are not editable when they are visible on assignment pages.

Pre-defined Views

View specifications are created by administrators for the Projects>Data, Resources>Data, and Assignments pages. Each view has a name and is selectable in the view selection drop down at the upper right of the page.

As an example, the first screen shot below displays the Forecast Super Simple view. The second displays the Forecast UDF view.

The Forecast Super Simple view contains only the Project Name, Unit Priority, and Resource fields at the left.

The Forecast UDF view contains many more fields at the left.
