Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Edit resources, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- Now that we're comfortable with resources in OmniPlan,…I just wanted to take a moment to look at…editing existing resources, and some of the implications…that that has.…So, we're here in Resource View.…Select any resource, I'm going to choose Designer.…You can see that everything adjusts to the assigned…tasks and milestones for the Designer,…and then we also automatically go to…the resource inspector.…So there's various things here.…This is where I want to look, is the resource inspector…in some detail.…
So, obviously we have the name of the resource,…but this can change it any time.…If we reach a point where move from…just the generic titles, to the actual people's names,…we could add Jane there...…not going to do that now.…We can add an email, and that's useful.…We've already talked about the type of resource,…but here in the inspector, we see it in detail.…We've already talked about units and efficiency.…We'll make one small adjustment here,…because I just want to show you how these things…affect each other.…

Learn how to use views; track project progress with critical paths, Gantt charts, and baselines; and configure different project settings.
