Working with the Resource Leveling Feature


Project has a resource leveling feature that will attempt to resolve resource overallocations for you. The sidebars on the previous four pages talk about the dialog that controls the resource leveling feature. This feature attempts to reduce the Assignment units for any given resource for a single time period so that it is lower than or equal to that resource's Max Units value. This section covers the tasks that go into using this feature.
