Understanding Limitations in Displaying Information in the Resource Planner


Understanding Current Limitations in Displaying Information in the Resource Planner

Currently and to improve performance, Workfront limits the amount of information displayed in the Resource Planner.
The Resource Planner displays only the information of the first 2000 assignments at one time.
Workfront displays a warning message to notify you when you have reached this limit. 
This limitation is temporary.

This limitation is visible differently depending on which view you apply to the Resource Planner:

  • User View: Displays only the first 2000 assignments (tasks or issues) of the users displayed. 
  • Project View: Displays only the first 2000 projects where you are a Resource Manager.
  • Role View: Displays only the first 2000 job roles assigned to projects where you are a Resource Manager. 

NOTE When using the Project and Role Views, if the first 2000 projects or roles are not the projects or roles that you want to see, limit the amount of projects for which you are the Resource Manager. Maintain your role as the Resource Manager only on the projects you want to manage in the Resource Planner. This should reduce the number of projects you see, and display more relevant information in the Project and Role Views.  

We are actively working to address this temporary limitation and to allow the Resource Planner to display with fewer limitations. In the future, you will be able to control what you see by using filters. At this time, we are planning to remove this limitation with our 2018.2 release which is currently planned for June, 2018. 

Before the release to the Production environment, we will first release the solution for addressing this limit in the Preview environment. As a system administrator, you can follow your Announcement Center messages to learn when our Preview and Production release dates are scheduled. 

When this limitation is removed, we encourage you to review it in the Preview environment and let us know if the Resource Planner works as you would expect. 

For more information about working in the Resource Planner, see "Planning in the Resource Planner."

Improve the Resource Planner by Participating in Beta Testing

Prior to the 18.2 release, we are also opening a beta program to validate the performance of the Resource Planner based on the changes we are making.

If you want to participate in this program or learn more about it, please see "Resource Planner Performance Beta."

***DO NOT CHANGE/ MOVE/ CHANGE NAMES OR LINK: This is linked to the UI during the whole 18.2 release to preview - might be removed with the production release but it might not.
