Using the Task Usage View

After an assignment is created in a task view, you can examine and modify details of the assignment in the Assignment Information dialog box. However, you must be in either the Task Usage view or the Resource Usage view to access the Assignment Information dialog box. So, let me first introduce you to the Task Usage view. We'll work with this view more in the next hour.

The Task Usage view displays a list of the project's tasks in a table on the left side of the screen (see Figure 11.9) with each task's assignments indented under the task listing. The table's columns are task fields or assignment fields. If the column is an assignment field, the cell in a task row will be blank (and vice versa). For example, the Units field is blank on all task rows in Figure 11.9. The Work values on task rows summarize the Work values for the assignments indented under that task.
