Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi All, any clue as to how to get the Resource label to display as per the attached pic? On the Resource Profile section of the chart it should say "nn Men Required, where "nn" is the number in the left border. I am using P6 17.2 server and Standalone Lite versions but am unable to make this work in either version

Thjanks Rafael, it was the Show Unit Label toggle. Much appreciated for the link.

The following link might help.

  • Be reminded that it is an average value and not the maximum. The smaller the time interval the closer you will get. 
  • When using partial workloads it might not even get close. 
  • That you use a label such as "Men Required" it does not means it will give you the maximum, it will still give you an average calculated on an arbitrary number.  
  • I suggest using a label that includes the word "Average" to warn others it is not necessarily the maximum required during the time interval.

The following simple scenario combines different calendars and partial workloads you can try yourself.


Good Luck
