Resources Leveling with Multiple Assignees

Description - Currently, Workfront cancels automatic resource leveling anytime more than one person is assigned to a task. However, all of the information needed to execute this effectively (e.g., allocation percentages/hours, etc.) is present in Workfront. In many cases, automatic resource leveling is a critical feature because it automatically takes care of numerous, very complicated timeline adjustments that are difficult or impossible to do manually. However, it is unusable in the very common scenario where there are multiple assignees. This idea is to request that resource leveling is not canceled with multiple assignees. I would throw in there also that resource leveling be compatible with the Effort Driven duration type and any other features it is currently not compatible with.

 

Why is this feature important to you - In many cases, automatic resource leveling is a critical feature because it automatically takes care of numerous, very complicated timeline adjustments that are difficult or impossible to do manually. However, it is unusable in the very common scenario where there are multiple assignees.

How would you like the feature to work -This idea is to request that resource leveling is not canceled with multiple assignees. I would throw in there also that resource leveling be compatible with the Effort Driven duration type and any other features it is currently not compatible with. No UI changes would be necessary as far as I can see.

Current Behaviour - Currently, Workfront cancels automatic resource leveling anytime more than one person is assigned to a task. However, all of the information needed to execute this effectively (e.g., allocation percentages/hours, etc.) is present in Workfront.
