Microsoft Project - remove resources allocation % for display?

Discussion in 'Project General' started by FullOfQuestions, May 2, 2008.

  1. I am the only person on the project that has Microsoft Project so I am
    working with hard copies and excel to distibute tasks. In this distribution,
    I would like to show the team who is assigned to what task but NOT what
    percentage of time is assigned. How to I remove the % displayed from the
    resource column on the Gantt Chart view while still keeping all of my
    resource scheduling in the Resource Usage View?

    Hello FullOfQuestions,

    A common way is to display the Resource Initials next to the Gantt
    bars or in the Task Sheet instead of the Resource Name. You can copy
    the resources' names into the Resource Initials field in the Resource
    Sheet to use full names as well.

    You can add the Resource Initials column by clicking your right mouse
    on a column heading and selecting Insert Column.

    I hope this helps. Let us know how you get along.

    Fullofquestions,
    The easiest "fix" is to switch to decimal assignment units. To do that,
    go to Tools/Options/Schedule tab. Change the "show assignment units as
    a:" to decimal.

    Now, if you want to eliminate the assignment level altogether from the
    Gantt Chart view, you will need to set up a custom field with a formula
    that parses the Resource Names field to eliminate the assignment level.
    However, a much more convenient approach might be to simply display the
    Resource Initials field in the Gantt Chart view in lieu of the Resource
    Names field.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey David,

    I visited the link, the company Enbraun has done a good job. Their product eresource scheduler have some good features and out of all i like drag & drop scheduling and import/export of data to spreadsheets which i think is the most important. Thanks a lot david for introducing this valuable software product.
