Managing Capacity

This article shows how to view and manage resource capacity in ResourceFirst, using the Capacity tab.

Managing Capacity

Edit section

The Resource Capacity page shows all the resources included in the Get Data parameters, and contains the total capacity for project work in each period for each resource, usually expressed in full time equivalent (FTE) units.  A “1.0” for an interval means the resource is full time.  A half time resource would have “0.5” in the interval.

To enter/modify a capacity level, click on the cell desired, enter the number and hit Enter. Note that you can also click the lower right corner of a cell and drag that value to multiple cells.


Don’t forget to save.

Note: When a resource is terminated, remember to zero their capacity beyond the Date Terminated to ensure ongoing correct historical reporting.
