How Do Assignments Work?

An assignment is created when you tell Project that a resource will be working on a task, such as putting the resource Brian to work on a task called Develop Requirements. The best place to view information about assignments is in one of the Usage views. In the following figure you can see the Task Usage view (Views, Task Usage). In it there is a task called Develop Requirements, and the resource Brian is assigned to work 16 hours on it. The row where Brian's name appears is the row of this view that represents Brian's assignment to the task, which starts on 6/30 and ends on 7/1.

If you assign another resource to this task, you'll start to see how the relationship between a task and its assignments are a bit like the relationship between a summary task and its subtasks.
