I want to de-activate a person that is already resourced for my project. How do I proceed?

When de-activating a person, Silverbucket allows you to transfer that person's allocations to an unassigned role in the project.

In this example a person called "Test Person" no longer works for us. We had already allocated this person to the project called "Bridges & Dams". The resourced workload will be needed in the future, so it would be clever to move this over to an unassigned role at this point.

Test Person is allocated for seven different days for the project


1) Start by navigating over to the Person's Dashboard who is no longer needed. Click 'Edit person' located top-right of the Dashboard.

The 'Edit Person' view is located in the top-right corner


2a) In the opening view we have information about the person. In the right column we have a slider 'Active' which can be switched off. This deactivates the person (= makes the person passive).

2b) De-activating this slider reveals another slider called 'Transfer future allocations for roles'  which allows us to transfer allocations for an unassigned role.

As the 'Active' slider is set off, a warning text will appear in the left side of the window which indicates the future allocations should be taken into account.
Make sure you have adjusted the proper sliders before clicking 'Save'


3) Before proceeding, make sure:
- the 'Active' slider is OFF
- the 'Transfer future allocations for roles'  slider is ON
Click 'Save' and Silverbucket moves the created resourcing plan to an unassigned default role for the project.

4) Simultaneously the person is set as passive, which is indicated in the Person's Dashboard
We have succesfully de-activated the person


5) In the project's dashboard we can see the allocations have been moved over to an unassigned role called 'Project Member'

This unassigned role's allocations can further be re-allocated with Silverbucket's 'Move to...'-features


If you wish to move these allocations to another person later on, you can use the Membership Actions.
