How to reset password for P6 Cloud Users

Information on managing users and passwords from the Cloud Administration Utility can be found in the Cloud Administrator's Guide in the Primavera Documentation Library.

Thank you Katherine! 

If a user are set up in P6 Cloud Admin, but are not active and access is disabled in the Cloud Admin. Would these “inactive” users count towards their user license limit? In the client case, they have rotating seasonal workers and only use P6 during certain times of the year.

P6EPPM licensing is by  "Hosted Named User": "is defined as an individual authorized by You to access the hosted service, regardless of whether the individual is actively accessing the hosted service at any given time." so, if the user is not active is not authorized and therefore not counted.

Baseline Execution Index (BEI) check

 BEI - Activities with No Project Baseline Finish Date Section of the Schedule Check Report Dialog Box


Use this section to view the data on activities that matched the requirements for the Baseline Execution Index (BEI) check. This check measures the number of activities that have been completed as a ratio to those activities that should have been completed according to the baseline.

Only a subset of the activities in the open projects are checked to see if they are complete or should have been completed. WBS summary activities, activities with no actual finish date, milestones, and Level of Effort activities are removed from the subset to create the list of completed activities. WBS summary activities, milestones, Level of Effort activities, and activities with a baseline finish later than the data date are removed to create the list of activities that should have been completed. The number of completed activities is then divided by the number of activities that should have been completed to find the BEI ratio.
