Hi,
In projector we can define many types of elements, except resource types, is that true?
For example, lets suppose that we have several activity types and we want to assign each of those activity types a resource group in which only one real resource will be selected. Resource pool cannot be used for this purpose because it means co-working.
Teams element is designed for different purpose.
I mean that instead of assigning each activity type to each single resource, assigning the activity to a group of resorce from which the projeqtor will select the most available 8ne.
Thanks for your efforts.

Yes
There is no type for activities because there is not status on resource, so no workflow to define.

I mean that instead of assigning each activity type to each single resource, assigning the activity to a group of resorce from which the projeqtor will select the most available one.

This is IA, and ProjeQtOr is not an IA.
For instance, there is no easy definition of "the most available one".
Moreover, the resolution of such problems are why quantum computer are desgined : seems easy problem to solve, but with so many possibilities (when addinf several tasks) that is cannot be solved by standard algorythms.

Thank you very much for your quick reply.
It is not necessary to be an AI solution. I think the program has already existing algorithms for this. After sorting projects and their activities according to priorities etc., when time comes to process activities, i think, the program starts search in resource's calendar for a suitable interval according to the criteira. When it cannot, it produces warning by changing the colour. If it finds it may break, if not, it can jump to the next resource in the list.
İ meean that smple.
Please, don't take this suggestion as an impudence.

Thank you for all your efforts.

Hi,
It's not that simple.
I mean, your first purpose is "assigning the activity to a group of resorce from which the projeqtor will select the most available one."
The real problem is which is the "most available" ?
Example :
A is booked : XXXXX XXXXX _____ XXXXX XXXXX
B is booked : XXXXX XXXXX XX___ ______ ______
Is I have an activity to book on third week for 5 days, A seems the "most available" on the week, but will have no most availability after, and Booking B will have worst planning for this task, but may lead to global better planning as B is free after, and this will allow to book A for another task on week 3.
Moreover, it is still more compicated is A and/or B take part to a pool : then they may be possibly booked through the pool, or it may be another resource of the pool (cannot get information at this point).

So yes, your idea is good, but really very difficult to implement.

Again thanks a lot for your reply.
And just think of me in this situation. :-)
Assign a type of resource to a type of activity, and another same type of resource to a same type of another activity, and so on. Then calculate activity planning to see the result. Change continuosly the resource assignments among the same type of activities, and see if it fits, or not. So, many manual experimental iterations.
Anyway, i think that's nature of projeqtor i suppose.
Thanks a lot again.

And it is what Pools are designed for.
