Collapse/Expand resource usage view in Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In MSP Server 2007 when displaying the resource usage view, I could collapse/expand the view to see the tasks specific to a resource using either the [-], [+] or the collape/expnde icon on the menu bar.  This was extremently convienient on projects with a large number of resources and assignments.

    Is there a comparable capabilty in 2010?  The resource usage view doesn't show the [-] or [+] next to the resource names and I can't find a collapse/expand command to add to the quick access/ribbon.

    Thanks in advance.

    Click the Select All button (upper left corner of the Resource Usage sheet) to select every resource and every task assignment.  Click the View tab to display the View ribbon.  In the Data section of the View ribbon, click the Outline pick list and select either the Show Subtasks or Hide Subtasks option.  Hope this helps.

    You are more than welcome for the help, my friend.  Welcome to the pain of upgrading to Microsoft Project 2010 with that new-fangled Ribbon!  :)

  • Hi!

    I had exactly the same issue, but the suggestion did not work for me. It collapsed my entire project to the highest level.

    The solution I found was to add the column "Atribuição" (I use MS Project in Portuguese - in English it must be something like "Attribution"). This is a boolean variable that assumes "yes" for resources and "no" for tasks. So I just used an Autofilter in this column (excluding "yes" values) to collapsed the resources.

    I hope I have helped.
