Microsoft Project 2016 Professional Plus For PC
The new version of Microsoft Project Server 2016 focuses on resource management. This section is about coordinating and committing resources between the project manager and the line-of-business team manager.
Up to now, Microsoft Project has included the Resource Plan function for team leaders, but its benefits were limited. The new version introduces the Resource Engagements function which is designed to support better collaboration between project managers and team managers.
The Resource Plan has been moved from Project WebAccess (PWA) to Project Professional and expanded with new functions. The plan allows project managers to view and edit their resource requests and commitments for their current project. The requests need to be entered separately and in parallel to the project plan.
Project Web Access (PWA) now provides team managers with new views including an overview of all the resource requests they have received across all projects. They can agree to resource commitments within this view. This is a big step forward making project collaboration much easier.2
