    View Assigned Resources with task

    Hey all,

    I have a problem in shown the assign resource in the PWA or in Outlook
    plug-in for MS Project server.

    E.g. if I assign a resource type material or work (but as equipment ) how I
    can keep track the use of this resource or how the worker (the Human) come to
    known this resource is assign with him in the same task.

    Another question if I consider some resource as material it is ok, but if I
    created the resource as work (but as equipment) MS Project server will create
    a login account in PWA authentication type is project server. Is this
    considering a used license?! And who will update task which assign to this
    resource which actual an equipment?!

    i am using project server 2003 + SBS 2003 server + MS Project Pro 2003 ( 1 CAL ) + 3 CAL for PWA

      I think you may be out of luck with this one. It is quite specialist!

      I know Project but not Project Server, so cant help you, but maybe ca.

      Re licensing, as far as I know licenses are normally used when you access a resource, rather than create an account. It would seem a bit unfair for a piece of equipment to use a license by itself. I would suggest a quick call to Microsoft to confirm that.

      I did find
      However, if they are using Project Server, the organization must purchase a
      license (CAL) for each active user granted access to it ... so yes, a gray
      area exists, but as long as the resources are not granted access through PWA
      (i.e. no user account), then I don't see the issue of extracting data for
      them to view outside of PWA.
      This does not make anything clearer!
