Resource assignments to summary tasks not visible in Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am having a problem with my resource assignment. When assigning a resource to a summery task, the summary task is visible in the resource usage in MS Project, however when i enter the Resource center in Project Online, and go to Resource Assignments, the summary task cannot be seen. Why? And what can i do to see it/include it in the resource assignments in Project Online. 

    Thanks!

    Regards, 

    Karen

  • Karen,

    Did you check the box that says "Summary Tasks" ? Also, the summary task will appear as an assignment in the list. See the pictire below.

    Having said that, assigning resources to summary task in general is not a good practice. You might want to reconsider this approach.
