Applying resources RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a planning tool for my department and I am trying to apply resources to a task, but I haven't been able to find the way I want to do it.

    Let's assume that you have a task that you have determined typically takes you 8 hours of work to complete.  However that 8 hours is split up over the course of 5 days.  How would I assign resources in that manner?

  • Hi,

    You can for example create a 5 days task, set it to fixed duration, then assign a resource (it will be 40hrs, 100% by default). Split your screen, use the task form and enter 8hrs of work instead of 40hrs. Since the duration is fixed, the 8hrs will be spread along the 5 days.

    You can also use the task usage view and manually enter the work on the task.

    Hope this helps,
