50% Resource Allocation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm looking to make all of our resources as being 50% available within resource centre.  I won't bore with 'why', suffice it to say it's for our usage of resource plans.

    Can anyone highlight what aspects could be affected by amending this utilisation?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You could bulk edit the resources availability to 50% by checking them out from the resource center in MS Project.

    Changing the availability will only impact the capacity calculation, meaning that all your resource might come out as over allocated. The assignments will not be impacted.


    Hope this helps,

  • perfect exactly what I as hoping for thanks.

    I didn't know if it meant an 8 hour/one day effort task in a project plan might push it into a second day.

    Thank you.

  • No it should not.

    Just be aware that all new assignments will be set by default at 50% unit.
