Empty Resource Overview Dashboard


we implemented PPM 5.0 for project and resource management.

So far, the application works fine for the requirements within Project Management/Administration.

But we can not use the functions under the Resource Management tab of PPM (with NWBC).

We do not use Portfolio Management yet.

So I wonder if these functions work only in combination with Portfolio Management?

If so, why do I see data in the Resource Management tab for the staffing screens, but not for resources?

Attached are two screens which explains my dilemma.

I figured out that there are some switches in customizing where I can influence the screens (e.g number of columns), but not what needs to be activated or configured to let the data appear for resources.

Please take a look on the screenshots.

Any advice is appreciated.

    I think I solved it 🤣

    During the installation or basic configuration you might come along the SAP note 1406591.

    In there it is explained that you need to copy customizing tables from client 000 to your productive client i.e. 100. Though this note refers to upgrade procedures from PPM 4.5 to 5.0, it seems also valid for a plain installed PPM 5.0 Add-on. At least it helped me in many ways, even if we didn't do any PPM upgrade.

    After copying the customizing as described in the note for the dashboards by copying /RPM/DASHBOARD I was able to maintain the resource pools, teams and get the dashboard filled with my resources.

    Also, there is still no "change" button to change the content of a pool or team. The changing will be achieved by simply clicking on the exisiting pool. When it open, you can add or delete resources to the pool/team as you like. Can't figure out now if it was possible before I did the copying of the /RPM/DASHBOARD.

    Now I am still testing, but am pretty confident that was it.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi Darijo,

    Resources & resource overview FES screens are mainly available for the resource managers who are managing a pool of resources. For e.g. If a resource manager has 10 resources in his team, then there will be resource pool created with all 10 resources as members and a resource manager will be assigned to it. So, when resource managers login and go to resources FES he will be able to see all the 10 members under him and the assignments of those resources.

    You can create these resource pools in 'Portfolio & Project administration'.

    Hope this clarifies your query.
