Based on specified criteria, resources in the selected team are supplied to the project, depending on their current availability, once the resource plan is saved.
If you have the ability to maintain forecasts, a demand forecast may optionally be created for integration into Strategic Planning and can be viewed and amended. However, approval of that forecast will not usually generate additional demand requests, unless changes are made before approval, since the matching supply has already been allocated.
The created forecast will be a new forecast if no current live or unapproved forecast exists for the project, otherwise will be based on the most recent live or unapproved forecast. In the latter case:
•for resources with matching role and team combinations, supply in the selected open periods is replaced by new requested supply
•where resources do not have matching role and team combinations and for role-based demand, forecast values are unaffected.
