How many resources can be added to a single task? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    How many resources can be added to a single task?

    Is the maximum number 16 or we can add more?

    Is there any way to control the number of resources on a particular task?

    Thanks.

  • You can assign more than 16 resources to a task - the problem is viewing the list. You can do this in a split screen with a Resources form or in the Task Usage View.

  • Hello Anurag

    The actual limit is a huge number, but in reality your shouldn't go over 7.  After 7 resources assigned to task, you start running into issues with performance.  Plus it's hard to determine how the project scheduling enginee is assigning those assigned hours.

    There isn't a way to control the number of resources assigned, other than creating a report that flags a high number of resources on a task.  this can be autmoated using SSRS (reporting services) and schedule this as a regular job.
