Resources → Resource Options → Resource Teams
A resource team is a group of resources who work together to complete a collection of assigned tasks. All members of a resource team are given the same role assignments as the resource team to which they belong.
New resource teams can be added, into which new resources can be placed, creating a new resource team. Use the New Resource Team dialog box to add a resource team.
A resource manager can delete a resource team from the resource pool. A resource team cannot be deleted if it contains resources.
Open the Move Resources dialog box to move a resource or a resource team to a different location in the Resource Breakdown Structure (RBS).
A resource team can be viewed from the Team Summary tab.
You can view the properties of any resource team to which you have access.
When you create a resource team you can determine who has access to the resource team, and what they can do with the resource team and individual resources. Resource team security is defined on the Resource Team Properties page. To define resource team security for a resource team, security groups and/or users are assigned to specific security roles on the resource team. The security roles determine the permissions the members of a security group or individual users have for the resource team and its resources.
The Resource Team Properties page has two views, the simple view and the advanced view. When you open the Resource Team Properties page, the page defaults to the simple view. To open the advanced view, click the Advanced link on the page. To return to the simple view, click the Simple link in the advanced view.
There are two ways you can assign security groups and/or users to security roles on resource teams. You can assign security groups and/or users to security roles by individual group or user, or by security role. In the simple view, you can only assign security groups and/or users to security roles by group or user. In the advanced view you can assign by group, user, or security role.
It is best practice to assign most of your users to security roles on resource teams using security groups, instead of individually assigning each of your users to security roles on resource teams. Using groups simplifies the tracking and managing of security role permissions for users.
When you assign a user or security group to a security role on a resource team with child resource teams, the permissions assigned to the parent resource team cascade down to the resource team's child resource teams.
