Replace all resource assignments in all projects from one resource to another RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    In one Project I can replace all assignments from one resource to Another using MS Project.

    But if a user leaves the Company or gets a new job the new employee will maybe take over all assignments for all Projects. Is it possible to do that in Project Online?

    And if so, how?

  • Hugo --

    No, there is no capability in Project Online to replace one resource with another resource across all projects.  You can use the Resource Assignments view in PWA to determine which projects the resource is assigned to, but then you will need to open each project in Project Professional, filter for the resource in question, and then replace the resource only on unstarted and in-progress tasks.  Do not replace the resource on completed tasks, because those represent actual history that should be preserved.  Hope this helps.
