Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding overallocations, part of Microsoft Project 2010 Essential Training.
- Workloads have to be just right…so you keep your team members busy…without burning them out.…Project's Resource Usage View makes it easy…to look for overallocations.…Other views, filters, and fields can also help you…find overallocations that you need to resolve.…Go the View tab and then click Resource Usage.…This view has a table on the left-hand side,…and it has Resources and then all of…the assignments for that resource.…On the right-hand side you have a time-phased grid,…so you have time periods.…
I'm gonna go up and click the Scroll to Tasks…so I can see some of those values…in the Time Phased grid.…One great way to look for overallocations…is to filter this view to only show…overallocated resources.…To do that, on the View tab you go…to the Filter box, click the down arrow,…and then choose Overallocated Resources.…Project then only shows the resources…that are overallocated, and it's really easy…to see which ones they are because it collapses…those rows so you don't see the assignments,…just the resources.…
