Assigning different weekly allocations to resources across a multi-week task RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a task that goes across multiple weeks, say 2. I also have the same 2 resources who will be working on this task for the 2 weeks. However, I'd like to:

    > Allocate Resource 1 for 1 day/week for Wk 1 and 4 days/week for Wk2 to this 2 week task

    > Allocate Resource 2 for 2 days/week for Wk 1 and 2 days/week for Wk2 to this 2 week task

    Unable to find a way to achieve this. Appreciate any help!

    There are various ways to do this, here is one.

    1. Create the task with a 10 day duration

    2. Create two resources on the Resource Sheet

    3. Assign both resources to the 10 day task. By default Project will assign them at 100% which will reduce the duration to 5 days so re-set the duration to 10 days

    4. Go to the Task Usage view. Assuming the timescale is set to show work per day, manually enter zero for each resource on those days they will not be working.

    I've arbitrarily selected alternate work days for each resource in your scenario and this is the result.

    Hope it helps.
