    resourses across multiple projects (Project 2000)

    I have several staff and multiple projects running concurrently. Each staff member has a role/task to perform on the different projects but of course one project doesn't end to free up that staff members time, so they can then go to the other, i need each staff member to swap from project to project depending on what skill is required on any given project at any time. this way alleviating downtime for any particular staff member. Basically i want to utilise resources across live projects? Can any one direct me on how to do this please?
    Many thanks for any help, much appreciated.
    Have a great day!

    Re: resourses across multiple projects (Project 2000)

    You could create a shared resource pool to view resource allocations accross multiple projects. Here are the basic steps
    Create a plan called Resource Pool as a file dedicated to storing your resources and add your available resources to the resource entry table
    Open the Sharer file and select Tools, Resource Sharing, Share Resources -- this will bring in and make available the resources in the pool file.
    I would recommend using a dedicated file for storing your resources. If you have resources in the sharer files they consolidate into one single resource list. It is easier to manage with a dedicated file.
