Edit a Resource

 

Overview

The Resource Center allows you to change the role of a team member assigned to a particular project; you can also change the team member who is assigned to that role or the resource label for unnamed resources.

  5. When the Edit Resource modal appears, clear the current Team Member or Role by clicking the Remove (“   ”) icon to the right of their name.
  6. If Rate Cards are not in use, start typing the new member name or role in the Team Member or Role field; a drop-down will appear below the field, populated with a list of available options for you to select from.
    Note: Regardless what role the team member is currently assigned for this project, you can find their default Account Role just below the Role field.

  7. If Rate Cards are enabled, the Role drop-down is limited to roles that are available on the Rate Card.

NOTE

Changing a member’s Role will also change the role’s current bill rate. If you’re not using rate cards, it will default to the member’s bill rate.

How to Edit Unnamed Resources (Resource Label or Role)

  1. Hover over Resourcing in the left navigation and select Resource Center.
  2. On the Resource Center page, select the Projects tab.

  5. To change the Resource Label when the Edit Resource modal appears, delete the current label and start typing the new label.
    Note: A resource label is short, descriptive text used to identify unnamed resources in a project. Although the label is automatically populated with an incremented Account Role name, you can change it at any time.
  6. To change the current Role first click the Remove (“   ”) icon to the right of the name.
  7. Next, start typing the new role; as you type, a drop-down will appear below the field, populated with a list of available options for you to select from. Remember that if Rate Cards are enabled, you will only see Roles associated with the Rate Card on the Project.

  8. Click Save to apply your changes.

NOTE

If Rate Cards are not in use, changing the Role will also change the role’s current bill rate. For unnamed resources, the bill rate will be an average of all current rates for that role.
