Finally found the facebook post (I thought the facebook group was going to be closed since this forum was open!).

We just implemented a new way to do resource allocation and tracking within our company last week. This was originally born out of necessity since the search function and dashboards were both limited in their ability to show exactly what we needed per person.
Our solution is as follows: Each of our boards are grouped into weekly sprints. Each pulse has a status connected to a “working on date”. We also have a “deadline” date column. The “deadline” is the drop-dead date that the task needs to be completed and should never change. The “working on date” is the day you complete the task - if it isn’t completed yet it should be set to the end of the week.
The result of this is that we can go into My Week and click on any team member and see their workload for the week. *We set the My Week settings to be Deadlines only. This also allows us to see any tasks that have not been completed yet as well as any tasks that are set for the future.
This gives us a pretty good idea of each team members weekly workload and in one week of using this new workflow we can already have much more insight into our projects. Caveat: this process is still nascent though, so we are adapting and iterating each day.
