Tip #5: How do I know what Project did to my Schedule When My Schedule was Leveled?
One of the issues with using Microsoft® Project 2010’s automatic leveling feature (used to resolve overallocations) is that you don’t know what it did to the schedule on a task by task basis. A well-hidden asset is the Leveling Gantt view.
Tip #4: Using the Resource Usage View to Analyze Resource Utilization
A standard assignment view that has been overlooked in many situations is the Resource Usage view. Many project managers take this view how they find it, but it can be customized to give you substantial information about resources.
Tip #2: How to See Which Tasks have created an Over allocation from the Resource Graph
To accomplish this, we will create a custom combination view. Go to the View tab, Other Views, More Views. Select Combination View. Provide a name for your new view. In the upper part of the view, select the Resource Graph. In the lower part of the view, select the Gantt Chart.
Tip #3: Using the Team Viewer in Project 2010 to Analyze and Resolve Overallocated Tasks.
A new feature in Project Professional 2010 is the Team Viewer. Project has always permitted you to allocate resources to tasks, but, in 2010, you can allocate tasks to resources with the Team Viewer.
Tip #1: How to display Resource Graphs for Selected Resources
In Microsoft® Project, there is a Resource Graph view that displays peak units, overallocation, remaining work, etc. for each resource. However, many of my students want to know how to display this graph for more than one resource and if you can select the resources graphed. The answer is YES.
