How do you bulk assign resources to tasks with a specific job role in a project using Workload Balancer?


Level 3

Our project managers are struggling with the 21.4 update that changed the default scheduling tool to the Workload Balancer. They aren't able to bulk assign resources to tasks in a project like they can using the Action menu in the Scheduling tool. Unless there is a way to do this in the Workload Balance that I'm not seeing, the Workload Balancer isn't ready to be the default.

I agree. Our PM/AM teams have to toggle from Workload Balancer and Scheduler when they need to bulk assign.

Any update on when we will be able to bulk assign in Balancer?



Bulk assignments is coming to Workload Balancer with 22.1 release.
