Finding Overallocations in the Resource Allocation View

The Resource Allocation view is a combination view with the Resource Usage view in the upper pane and the Leveling Gantt view in the lower pane. The reason this view is so useful is that the Usage view in the upper pane does a great job of showing exactly how many hours have been assigned to a resource during a specific time period and the Leveling Gantt view shows the task in question and also a graphical representation of how far the task can be moved out in time without delaying the project. This lets you see if you can move the entire assignment to a later time, and what effect this move would have on the project finish date.

Showing and Using the Resource Management Toolbar

Right-click any toolbar and select Resource Management.

Show the Resource Allocation view.

Move the selection in a view to the next overallocation.
