Resource planning requires you to identify all the resources in a proposed project. However, sometimes you need to plan a project based on roles and responsibilities before assigning it to specific people.

This is when you can use placeholders to:

  1. Identify all the resources needed for a project by proposed roles 
  2. Determine when you will need these resources
  3. Estimate total hours needed

Creating a placeholder

You can create a placeholder by clicking on the settings button. To add a placeholder into a project, simply click on "+ add a resource"

Adding assignment to placeholders

Placeholders are found at the bottom of the dashboard. You can minimize your people tab to see your place holder easily. 

Drag and drop assignments from placeholders to users

Once you have found the resources/users needed in Hive to take the assignment, you can easily drag and drop the assignments to a user.
