Customization → Labor Attribute Mapping
You can use the Labor Attribute Mapping tab to consolidate labor that relates to operations (such as allocations, assignments, and timesheet actuals) into Timephased - FTE attributes. A labor attribute map can only be mapped to a single Timephased - FTE attribute. Once labor attribute mapping is configured, the data can be used in any of the item views or reports and the item views can be configured to compare the plan versus the actual data.
If your organization is not using a labor attribute map, you should delete it.
This can be a resource-intensive operation and can take a considerable amount of time, especially in large item hierarchies; scheduling labor attribute mapping for off-hours is recommended. When recalculating labor attribute mapping, the entire enterprise portfolio will be unavailable and users will be locked-out of the system until the process is complete. Once refreshed, additional recalculations are performed for all calculated attributes that include labor attribute mapping. In addition, any calculated attribute that is affected by updated data, up to the enterprise portfolio, is also recalculated.
(To recalculate labor attribute mapping for a single item in the item hierarchy, use the Reconcile Now option in the Projects module.)
You can schedule the recalculation of labor attribute mapping. Create a schedule for the Post Attribute Maps plug-in from the Jobs tab in the Scheduled Services tab.
Labor attribute maps can be viewed from the Labor Attribute Mapping view.
