Assigning work resources to tasks
IMPORTANT If you are using Project Professional rather than Project Standard, the Assign
Resources dialog box and some other dialog boxes you see will contain additional options relating
to Project Server. Throughout this topic, we won’t use Project Server, so you can ignore these
options. For more information about Project Server, see Appendix C.
In the Task Name column in the Gantt Chart view, click the name of task 2, Assign
launch team members .
In the Resource Name column in the Assign Resources dialog box, click Carole
Poland , and then click Assign .
The resource assigned to the
selected task has a check mark
next to its name in the
Assign Resources dialog box.
The name of the assigned resource
appears next to the Gantt bar.
A cost value and check mark appears next to Carole’s name in the Assign Resources
dialog box, indicating that you have assigned her to the task. Carole’s name also
appears next to the task 2 Gantt bar. Because Carole has a standard cost rate
recorded, Project calculates the cost of the assignment (Carole’s standard pay rate
times her scheduled amount of work on the task) and displays that value, $420, in the
Cost field of the Assign Resources dialog box.
In the Task Name column, click the name of task 3, Complete author questionnaire .
