How to produce a warning when resources are used on more than one task? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I am currently using a trial subscription of Project Online Premium to manage my employees schedules. I have a couple project managers that are doing the scheduling for various tasks, and when they upload their current projects via gantt chart I would like be warned when the same resource is scheduled for two different projects at the same time.

    Is there a method to create an error when a resource is double booked for the same date and time?

    Thank you!

  • Not sure about an error, but you could use the option of "load summary resource assignments" upon opening of project/selection of your profile... then if someone was over capacity there are native indicators that would display in the Resource Usage view within project.

    Else, you could create a report that did counts of active assignments greater than 1.
