Using the Resource Graph


The Resource Graph is a view on its own, but it's best used as the lower pane of a combination view. It shows a bar chart of the allocation of the resources selected in the upper pane, or of the resources assigned to a task that's selected in the upper pane. This makes gauging the extent of a resource's overallocation easier.
