I want to create a shared resource (unlicensed resource) and have it act as a place holder so that it becomes allocated. However, I don't want it to use work time. For example, if I already have an engineer working on a project that takes two weeks, but I want to show that a computer will be also used, I don't want the amount of required time to be less than the two weeks when I add the computer as a resource. I want to keep the engineer on it for two weeks, add the computer, and still have it take two weeks.
I should be able to add non-working resources, that won't affect the amount of time it takes to complete the task. I'm thinking it could be set up using a different calendar. I've tried creating a new work calendar and removing the working time. However, Celoxis won't accept zero working time on the calendar.
Please help :-) Thanks!
