Calculating Demand with the New Resource Engagements Feature

Looks like when I wrote that post on how to incorporate Resource Engagements into the portfolio analysis module of Project Online / Project Server 2016, I left out one critical step.

For resource engagements to show up in the calculated portfolio demand, you’ll need to open the Project Information dialog box within Microsoft Project Professional and toggle the calculation settings – then republish the project.

Note that the option only appears after the project has been saved to Project Server.

    Andrew, thanks for your blog. I was hoping you could help as I have not been able to figure this out with the Microsoft Community. Essentially, I am trying to use MS Project Resource Capacity feature to create a heat map. My client will not be using MS Project. The project is off and running and I essentially assigned the client team (by name) to tasks. They were not marked generic and MS Project won’t let me change it. I tried your trick of 0% max capacity but that changed people from blue to green in the heat map. Any thoughts? Not sure if I can recreate generic resources and re-assign? Or if whether they are marked generic or not has nothing to do with this and I messed up elsewhere?
