Is there a way to do resource allocations on a per Iteration basis in a Project based on Scrum template and have "Resource TAB", similar to what we have in Formal Process so that we can change the % of allocation , date range for different users with respect to different Iteration .

Hi, I don't think that is possible. May main reason for that is that I don't think the agile scheduler works that way and there is no way, I am aware of, to allocate a user for an iteration.

It is possible to add some of the features of the formal project management template to the agile process templates. this is described here: . I am however in doubt that it would provide you with what you are looking for. If you want to try it out, I would suggest setting up a test server.

Thanks Ralph for your Answer.

Can we look in a different way which can be taken as enhancement --such that there will be a Master Timeline and that Master Timeline will have Nested Child Timeline and Subchild Timeline and each such Timeline will have its own associated Ieration  . Then in that case a particular Rsource can be given % of Allocation in one or  some identified Timelnes and wokitem will be "planned for" to the iteration where that iteration is associated with a Timeline . Each Timeline will be associated with a Team. This approach will give more grannular control on resource management INDIRECTLY via Iteration . % of Total Allocaion and Total Efforts should be rolled up to the TOP Project level Timeline AND data points should be ecposed to RRDI for further Calculation .
