    Basic Resource Allocation Question (Project 2K)

    I have a project item which has a duration of 1 day. I have 4 people assigned to this item. Person-1 and 2 both have 1 hour, Person-3 has 4 hours, and Person-4 has 10 hours. Is there a way to force it to display under Resource Names the amount of hours rather than a percentile?

    Resource Names in which view? If you go to Resource Usage view you will see the hours - but I don't think that is what you were asking.

    This was in the Gantt Chart that I did this. Under Duration I put in 1 day, then under Task Information --> Resources it only allows you you to enter the time divided up by percentage. Actually, it isn't really 1 day, it is 16 hours when you add all the numbers up so that is probably my first mistake.

    I changed it to 16h and then added under Resources the hours of each person. It still calculated and converted it to 6%, 6%, 25% and 63%.

    Is this the sort of thing you are looking for?

    Re: Basic Resource Allocation Question (Project 2K)

    Actually, no, not exactly - but that is very interesting. It appears this has the capability of even assigning the number of hours down the the particular hour of the day. I can see how that could be very useful.

    Under resource name on the normal Gantt view (I am assuming it is normal or default), I just want it to display the number of hours rather than percent. I need to print this out and give to someone that doesn't have Project, otherwise your example would have worked. I tried doing a screen shot of what I am looking at but I couldn't get it to work. Under Resource Names it has all 4 people assigned to this 16h task with their percentile in brackets next to their names. This is difficult to explain because your Gantt chart doesn't look the same as mine. I have the task name, duration, start, finish, predecessors, Resource Names, then the bar graphs along a time line.

    Mike,

    From the Main Menu, Select Tools, Options. Select the Schedule Tab. Change the SHOW ASSIGNMENT UNITS AS A from Percentage to Decimal.

    This will show the assignments of the resource on the Gantt as Resource Name [decimal number]

    HTH
    Regards,
