The resources file in Deltek Cobra can be developed as a simple list or a more complex hierarchy of resources.
In this video, we going to walk you through some of the options for creating a hierarchy within your resource list. What you’ll learn here is how to build a resource hierarchy into your Resources ancillary file. This is something that you can do easily in the interface if you a loading the resources in manually using the Add Resource and Add Child Resource tools built into the interface.
However, if you load your resources from a spreadsheet via the integration wizard, then you may be in for a challenge as there’s no way to describe a hierarchy in the resource calculations file format.
That takes a second resource file load using a different spreadsheet and format. The following video walks you through this process so that you may introduce a resource hierarchy after loading your initial list of resources and their calculations.
