Assignment: how to convert a task into an assignment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I assigned resource name to a task but still the Assignment (Task) field is shown as "No".

    How to convert a task to an assignment so that Assignment field starts showing "Yes".

    I am using standalone MS Project 2010 client  (with no Project Server).

    Thanks.

  • Hi Daljeet,

    A Task will always be a task. Even if you assigned a resource to it. When you assign a resource to a task you create a new assignment.

    In order to view this assignment, you need to open an assignment view like the Task Usage view. This will show you the task (Assignment = No) with it's assignment (marked by the resource name) below it (Assignment = Yes).

    I hope this helps,
    Hans
