Proposing Staffing Assignments

Some organizations give users who can create resource staffing requests the permission to propose staffing assignments (select the specific resources they want) prior to submitting the request. If a user has this permission (Propose), there will be an additional Propose button on the toolbar. See About Staffing Permissions.
