Resource Assignments Across Project Teams RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my current project I have team members who work on multiple teams.


    Jane Doe works on my project 75% of the time.  25% she is allocated to Team 1 and 50% she is allocated to team 2.

    I can add Jane Doe to my project and assign her to a single Group (Team) at 75%, but I do not see a way I can assign that resource to multiple groups and furthermore assign her to a single group at 25% and 75%.  This makes it difficult to see where she is over allocated within specific teams and over all.

    Does anyone have an effective solution to track resources across teams?

  • No. Project doesn't handle this scenario. You can have two resources, Jane Doe team 1 and Jane Doe team 2 but that is all.

    You could just handle resources as individuals (no teams) and then assign tasks to teams. By filtering for Team 1, selecting all filtered tasks then showing the task usage view in the lower pane you can look at resource usage across a team.

  • Hi,

    I would split poor Jane in two Janes (Jane Doe G1 and Jane Doe G2) each with the appropriate Mac Units (25 and 75). You can use the grouping feature to check her total usage vs. 100%.
