  • 1. Display Resource Information in Gannt Chart
    My boss wants a Gantt Chart view printed. However, he wants also be able to see the custom information I have added for each resource in the Gantt Chart. I have the Gantt Chart grouped by resource. I would love to be able to display the rest of the information from the custom columns on the "grouping" line between the tasks, but I have no idea how to do that. If that is not possible, is there some other way that I can get the columns from my resource pay to display in the Gantt Chart? I don't want to have to enter the same information twice when I update it. I want to be able to change the resource information when needed, add it to a task, and have the information populate. Thanks so much for any help!!!!!!!!.

  • 3. levelling and tasks
    Hello, We are currently working on a project in order to organize our team. Unfortunately, we have a problem concerning the resources allocation and the levelling. Indeed, when we are using the levelling in order to avoid resources overallocation, microsoft project changes the dates by itself. We tried to link all the tasks together, set up "finish to start" or "must finish on" constraints plus a milestone but the allocation and the dates are still wrong. For example, linked tasks that should be finished before the milestone event are finsishing after the milestone start.... Is the problem due to a wrong priority for each task ? Should we set up other constraints? Actually, we would like the levelling to divide the whole duration from all tasks assigned to resources without changing the dates in order to create a coherent calendar for each person of the team: is this possible ? Many thanks for your help, The team
  • 4. Printing in Project 2007
    I am having dificulty printing to a specified number of pages for a file to fit itselft to. If I select fit to and do 1 x 1 it does not fill the whole page as it would in 2006. Also if I select 1 x 2 or any other option it does not force the gantt chart to fit that number of pages like project 2003 would. I am also having problems with the bars on my gantt charts printing too small now that I have upgraded. Any thoughts? Thank you,

I know I was able to change the items in the legend before, but I can't 
remember now.

I need to delete some of the legend items in my Gantt chard that are not 
used in the actual schedule. To avoid confusion

Go to Format-Bar Styles and put an asterisk (*) before the Name of the ones 
that you don't want to appear in the legend.

Or delete them...
