How do I filter the unstaffed demand section?

Unstaffed demand is the bottom section of the Resource Review page. This is where you can view the roles and projects in PowerSteering and their effort and availability as an overall number or by project and task. You can also use this page to assign users to work. The filter tool allows you to limit the information that is displayed in the unstaffed demand section. This can be very helpful when you only want to do resource management for a specific role, resource pool or project.  This article describes how to filter the unstaffed demand section of the Resource Review.

Note: The unstaffed demand section lists needs based on actual roles. If the  need on the work has no role identified, it will not appear in the  unstaffed demand section regardless of what filters are used.

Note: The unstaffed demand section can display 5000 projects at one time. If the filter results exceed this number, you will be prompted to revise the filter criteria. This threshold works for each filter independently, so if at least one of the filter's results exceeds 5000 projects, you will be prompted with the warning and further filtering will stop.
