Populating Project Resources

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Help Please! Am trying to add a new worker to be able to create an expense report. I go into workers, new, and fill out the screen, etc. When I select Hire, I get the error: 

Project resource data has not been populated. Please populate the data by running the ‘Populate project resources across all companies’ batch job.

So I run the batch job just as it says and another error, saying the batch job has already been run. Also try to add a different worker as a project worker, and get the exact same error.

    in the search bar in dyn365 F&O put the text "Populate project resources across all companies" and click in search


    and after that u see this screen and need enable de batch processing and click OK


    aftter that if u need this procees will run every day, u need go to de batch jobs, look for the job called "Populate project resources across all companies" and select the opction recurrence and configure the recurrence run.

    We would need some more info to troubleshoot this. I would suggest opening a support ticket to have somebody from the support team help you out as it might need deeper investigation, unless anybody here has come across this issue and found a solution already!

    What deployment scenario have you got here? Is it the new integrated mode? Have you loaded the project operations demo data into F&O and applied the latest updates to the environment? Can you share the version details from the help > about menu in the top right?
