How can the soft booking option be used with project team members?

Posted on by 35

When attempting to soft-book a resource from a project team member, the following error appears on the schedule board:

"This booking status cannot be used for generic resource fulfillment. Please use the Hard-Book or Proposed status.

The "Generic Resource" is created automatically when the Project Team Member is created, so there doesn't seem to be a way around this.

How can we soft-book a resource from a project team member?

    You can use Proposed Bookings instead as described here: docs.microsoft.com/.../review-proposed-resources.

    You could also create a custom booking status and call it anything that makes sense:

    docs.microsoft.com/.../set-up-booking-statuses

    cloudblogs.microsoft.com/.../

    I hope you will find these useful!

    Hi ODynamics. Soft booking still isn't supported in ProjOps.
