Chapter 19 goes into more detail about how end users use various Project
Web Access features.
Make assignments and delegate tasks
Because the main focus of Project Web Access is to help you interact with
your team members, one of its most useful features is the capability to post
resource assignments and delegate work on tasks.
When you make assignments to projects, you can do so by using this
resource pool. This central repository of resources ensures consistency of
resource calendars, rates, and so on across your company’s projects.
Assigning resources from this pool (as shown in Figure 18-3) to your project
tasks also lets you see where resources are overbooked on multiple projects.
From the Resource Center, you can also view resource assignments and
availability to help you plan your resource strategy. Figure 18-4 shows the current
assignments for one resource — a very busy guy!
