Webinar: Assigning resources in Project

Dave Ludwig is a Content Developer for Office.com.

In our last webinar on Microsoft Project, we showed you the basics of how to get started with more confidence and less stress. This time we’ll take it a step further and show you how to assign people to tasks and use the Resource Sheet to track all of the people in your project. Plus, you’ll learn how to add vacation days and how to make sure they don’t push out the project deadline.

  • How to assign tasks to people

  1. Hi folks, at 11:15, you could also do this: Have Scott work on his task up until his vacation, and then have another resource work on the task while Scott is away on vacation. Here’s how to do that:
    View > Task Usage.
    Then click the "Rent an event space" cell
    Click Resource>Assign Resources
    Click another resource like Aaron, and then click Close.
    Under the "Rent an event space" cell, change Scott’s Finish date to 7/8/13.
    Change Aaron’s Start date to 7/9/13, and set his Finish date to 7/15/13.
