Lesson 8.4. Balancing Resource Overallocations Automatically
Figure 8-7. The Resource Leveling dialog box.
Figure 8-8. The project filtered for overallocated resources.
If you're not sure of the best way to balance an overallocated resource, you can leave it up to Project to level the resource instead. In leveling, Project splits and delays tasks in order to get rid of resource overallocation. Project tries to level only noncritical tasks (tasks with slack) to avoid affecting other tasks' schedules, because leveling often results in later start and finish dates for an overallocated task's successors.
This lesson shows you how to use leveling to balance overallocations in your project.
