Applying contours to assignments
These are all predeined work contours, and some of the names of the contours are
graphical representations of a resource’s work over time with that contour applied.
Select Back Loaded , and then click OK to close the Assignment Information dialog
Project applies the contour to this resource’s assignment and reschedules her work
on the task.
The contour indicator matches the type of
contour applied—back-loaded in this case.
The back-loaded contour causes Project to assign very little work
to the resource initially and then add more work each day.
You see that in each successive day of the task’s duration, Carole Poland is assigned
slightly more time to work on the assignment. You also see a contour indicator in the
Indicators column displaying the type of contour that is applied to the assignment.
In the Indicators column, point to the contour indicator.
