  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am working with an organization that does not resource load their MS Project schedules. We are thinking about implementing Project Server 2010 (currently just using Project Professional 2010) but I am wondering what capabilities Project Server offers if we don't have resources assigned to tasks. Specifically, is there any way to assign summary tasks to a a few users so that they can update % complete, actual start, and actual finish using the build in work flow available?

    Thanks,

    Jessica

  • I would say just assign the tasks to specific individuals responsible for reporting status.  I've also seen it done where a work group shares an account - then the task is assigned to the account.

    Any member of the work group can log in and report status.

  • Hi Andrew,

    How do you assign a task to a user? Thus far I have only been able to assign resource assignments to users.

    Thanks,

    Jessica

  • Different terms for the same thing.  When you assign a task to a user, you
    create a resource assignment.
