Avoid creating a schedule in Microsoft Project, importing and updating it in i-lign, then exporting to Microsoft Project and then repeating the process.
This can be achieved using a Task Pool, but is not possible in i-lign for standard Tasks, where only one allocation rate can be set per Resource per Task.
If you are planning a Project, and are unsure which individuals you will be using, or the actual people are unavailable, you can still plan your people-resources in i-lign, and therefore estimate your resource costs.
To manage, review and approve Timesheets, go to your My Work tab (Home > My Work) and scroll down the tabs to Timesheets to review > click Manage.
Your Project's Financial Profile records financial information, and affects how your Project Financials are calculated.
When people have been allocated to Tasks on a Project, their workloads (allocations) can be monitored using the Task Allocation List.
Users who have been assigned the 'Timesheet User' Resource type can log in to i-lign, but are limited to accessing their own Timesheet and the Tasks assigned to them.
People who have been added as an organisational Resource in i-lign can be assigned to Projects.
You can use i-lign's Microsoft Project import facility to load project information (tasks, milestones, dependencies, resource allocations) from a MS Project file into an i-lign project.
