To use Resource Scheduling, you will need to configure your environment, update your resources so they have associated skills, and most importantly, ensure alignment with your team of project and resource managers. Make sure the entire team is using the feature and monitoring their resource usage for the process to work.

There are additional customizations you can do such as creating flows around requests and resource fulfillment, reports to oversee resource bookings versus usage, and more.
