  • 1. Staggered Resource Assignment
    I have two tasks that start at the same time, however one is half the duration of the other. I have 4 workers to split between the tasks as resource assignments. How do I assign two to each (each task requires a minimum of two because of the nature of the tasks), and set it up so that when the shorter task is completed the two workers on that task then switch to the longer one? Thanks, Henry

    is there any template available to make work orders for employees
  • 4. Propagation from sub-projects to Master Project
    I have a Master Project schedule and inserted sub-projects (with the MS Project Insert function). I have linked milestones in sub-projects (sub-project milestone) to milestones in Master Project (Master Project milestone). When I update a sub-project milestone at 100% complete, there is no impact on the linked Master Project milestone. I was expecting that this Master Project milestone would automatically become 100% complete. It seems that %Complete data gets propagated between sub-projects and Master Program only when I use Copy Cell/Paste Special/Link Data function on the %Complete field. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Kind regards. -- Luc
  • 5. Resource Centre, Can't see all resources!
    G'day I have managed to sync Project server 2003 with our Active Directory Service using the Admin, Manage Users and Groups, Groups, Add group functions. However when I select Resource Centre in PWA I can only see resources I had added and activated during the setup of the Project Server 2003. I expect I do not need to manually add and activate every single Windows Account and Email address? Any ideas would be appreciated. :) -- Gani

Hide Resource Name on Gantt Bars globally

Is there a way to hide the Resource Name that is displayed next to each Gantt 
bar? I know you can remove the name display on a bar-by-bar, individual 
basis, but is there a global setting that will "not" show resource names for 
the entire project?

Hi Steve,

Welcome to this Microsoft Project newsgroup :)

Try Format/Bar Styles... and in the Text tab, delete the entry for Resource 
Names from the "right" cell.

FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be seen at 
this web address:  http://www.**--****.com/ 

Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :)

Yes. Select Format, Bar Styles and remove Resource Names from critical and 
noncritical bars. Better yet create separate Views for each report you need 
to produce rather than formatting and re-formatting the same View.

1.Ability to change Gantt Bar color based on Resource Name

Is there a way to customize project to display different color bars in Gantt

2.Task Summary view: Resource names above gantt bar?

How do I get the resource names to show above the bar in the task summary 
gantt chart view? They appear for all the sub-tasks when summary task filter 
is not applied, but not on the sumary task bar. 

I want to print out a task summarygantt chart view, but I need to see all 
the resources that are assigned to a particular task summary (we are a small 
organization, there are no more than 6 resources assigned to any task). The 
resource name column is also blank at the summary level.

I have tried the gantt chart wizard, but nothing happens in the summary view.

3.Howto change bar color globally for a resource

Hi all,

I'm using MS Project Pro 2002 and want to know if I can do something.
I've got a schedule layed out for a project with resources assigned to
tasks. Is it possible to give a resource (my team members) a
particular bar color so when they look at a project they can
immediately see what tasks are theirs? I can set the bar colors/styles
on a bar by bar basis, but this is a pain. What I'd like is to set a
bar color/style for each resource so when I move resources around, the
bar color/styles follow it. Know what I mean?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Doug Farrell

4.Resource Name Display on Gantt Bars

I have selected to display Resource Names as Gantt Bar 
Text.  However, as my resources are loaded (units) at 85%, 
when the resource name is displayed, the percentage is 
also displayed in brackets next to the resource name (i.e. 
John Doe [85%]).  Is there a way to display the resource 
name w/o the percentage (i.e. John Doe) and maintain the 
85% loading (unit) for the resource?

5.HowDoI hide text under a gantt bar when its rolled up in Project

roll up the subtasks.  I want to display the text for the sub task but NOT 
display text in the rolled up gantt bar.  Any ideas?
