Saving a new Resource Allocation view with a modified Leveling Gantt RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have successfully modified and saved views for the resource usage to my Enterprise Global Template.  I am using the resource usage as the top half of the split screen for resource allocation.  The bottom half of the screen is the leveling gantt, which no matter how many times I click on it and save the view and then try to bring up that view at the bottom, it always reverts to the default leveling gantt.  They layout below is how I want it to look, but the minute I navigate away from this and come back, the layout for the level gantt at the bottom reverts to the default.

    I even tried making a copy of the Resource Allocation view, which normally puts the resource usage at the top and the leveling gantt at the bottom, but I can't seem to find a way to have that leveling gantt customized.  Any suggestions?

    Make a copy of the task Delay table, give it an original name, and then specify which columns to display in this custom table.  Then make a copy of the Leveling Gantt view, give it an original name, and include the new custom table in this view.  Then include the new custom view (the copy of the Leveling Gantt view) in the new custom combination view.  Once done, your custom Leveling Gantt view should retain the custom table in the new custom combination view.  Hope this helps.
