How to assign a resource on a task who won’t be actually working on it RRS feed

  • Question

  •  have vendor resources working on a project and then there is a team lead from it who is just responsible for reporting/communications etc. but he is not actually working on the task. I want to assign him on the all vendor related task to keep it reported as the artifact as even team lead keeps changing after few months and this is a year long project. Is it possible to allocate him on the task with 0 work (of his own).

  • Though you can assign resource with 0% units, but that would add Team Lead un-necessarily on all the usage and assignment reports even though he himself is not working on the task. Why don't you use "Contact" field which could just act as a placeholder that for particular task who was the contact( here Team Lead) and he won't be even get added on the reports.
