Q&A

Q1:In the Resource Allocation view, the list of assignments in the top pane under a resource name is not in the same order as the list in the bottom pane, and it makes it hard to find the task in the bottom pane. How can I get them in the same order?
A1: Activate the top pane and choose Project, Sort, By ID to have Project sort the top pane by ID number. The lists should then be in sync. If not, activate the bottom pane and sort it by ID also.
Q2:I used the Level Now command, but there are still overallocated resources, even though Project didn't give me any alerts saying it was unable to resolve an overallocation.
A2: The Level Now command tackles only overallocations that trigger the leveling indicator. So if your project has the leveling sensitivity setting Week by Week, for example, there might still be resources that are overallocated on an Hour by Hour or Day by Day basis.
Q3:I entered a leveling delay for a task in the Leveling Gantt view, but Project doesn't show the preleveled task bar for the task.
A3: The preleveled task bar is based on the fields Preleveled Start and Preleveled Finish. These fields are calculated only when you use the Level Now command.
Q4:I tried to increase a resource's availability by changing working hours with the Tools, Change Working Time command. I found the Change Working Time command grayed out. What gives?
A4: The Change Working Time command is unavailable if the bottom pane of a combination view is active. As an alternative, display the Assign Resources dialog box and double-click on the resource name you want to work with. The Resource Information dialog box will appear, and you can use the Working Time tab to adjust the hours.
