Wrapped Up


Today was an interesting day. After a long and drawn out fiasco with, I made the decision to try a new host. As I write this, Liquid Web is building my new server. While it's a pain in the ass to move, couldn't have done more to blow their relationship with me. They used to be, which rocked, and that's why I've been with them for 8 years. But under new management now, simply sucks - hence, the big move.

While the server was cooking, I needed to finish up a big piece of 247Toolset. For a long time, I've had the piece developed where you can search your talent pool for the right resource in a very user-friendly fashion. But as I've been creating the Project Management module with its ability to create Project Roles, you could assign a confirmed resource to the Role, but you couldn't search for available talent via the Pool Search - until now. They're now connected together.

I have a lot more work to do to polish it up, but being able to drive through to solicit your resources to fulfill a Role - it functions as expected. I've done some things to make it easy - such as when creating multiples of a Role, all of the Roles are put into a Role Grouping behind the scenes so that the search you do will be associated across the multiple. If you solicit 8 people for 4 Roles in the grouping, and 5 affirm their willingness, you'll be able to assign the 4 Roles from the pool of 5.

That's powerful, and I think maybe even unique in the world of resource allocation.

One foot in front of the other... and I just got an email that my server will be ready shortly. Gonna be a long night!
