Hour 15. Resolving Resource Allocation P... > Letting Project Level Overallocated ...

Letting Project Level Overallocated Assignments

Instead of manually leveling overallocations as described in the previous sections, you can take the easy route and let Project do the work for you. However, Project can resolve overallocations only by calculating delays—it can't increase resource availability on its own, or adjust the work content of tasks, or substitute one resource for another. It can simply do a mathematical trick and calculate delays in tasks or assignments as a substitute for the more intelligent methods. You will almost always produce a better schedule if you level assignments manually.

Note

For more of my prejudicial opinions about the Level Now command, see "Understanding the Pitfalls of Automatic Leveling" later in this hour.
