I have a question from on of my Blog Readers: “Is it possible to use separate Resource to Projects, and then to see all Resources in one Master Project?”
The answer is: “YES” How? I’ll show you in MS PROJECT 2013!
First I’ll create Resource pool (the first one):
and I’ll save it:
Now I will create two Projects with two Tasks and I will use same Resource Pool:
Now I will Assign Resources to Tasks:
Now, the Second Project:
Now I’ll create Second Resource Pool:
And another two Projects with two Tasks, and with Usage of this Second Resource Pool:
Now I’m going to cerate Master Project with Subprojects:
and I’m going to import four Projects like that:
and I’ll get:
after I import all Projects I’ll have:
As you can see, all Resources are there. And both Resource Pools are open!
Lets see Resource sheet in Master Project:
OK! Now two Tips!
If you want to add Task to a Project4, for example, you can not use Resource from Resource Pool 1.
If you want to use independent Task like this:
You can not use any Resource from any Resource pool, either. And you can not assign independent Resource to that Task too! It is impossible!
