Allocation of resources fractionally to projects in project online. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    How to assign resources fractionally in Project Online without using Microsoft Project Professional?

    For eg. if I want to allocate a resource's x% or x hrs in a task, then how do I do it in project online.

    Note: If this functionality is not available in project online, then is there any idea when Microsoft is going to add this functionality in Project Online?

  • Hi PSN,

    When you're in edition mode in Project Online, you can use one of the assignments views. Then you'll be able to enter the work per assignments.

    Note that you cannot edit the % of work neither you can edit the work per period in a timescale view like resource or task usage views in Project Pro.

    Not being part of Microsoft staff (we're just volunteers here), we cannot give you any information on Microsoft Project next releases or SP. But my idea is that the online scheduling engine's next updates will not bring such an important improvement such as modifying in detail assignments.

    Hope this helps.
