Assigning Multiple Resources to One Task

Assigning Multiple Resources to One Task

Assigning Multiple Resources to One Task

I am a very basic MS Project 2007 user and I am struggling to get an answer to my question, I hope that someone here will be kind enough to help me.

I have a single task and I would like to assign multiple resources.  The task is a field assignment for our technicians and the work will be divided up into shifts.  For example, a single task can last for a couple of months but the technicians will work in 5-10 day shifts for those two months.  The duration and brief overlap will vary based on availability/need.

Is there any way I can schedule the technicians in small duration "chunks" over the entire duration of the task?  All of what I have found assigns a resource for a certain percentage over the entire duration, and I want to keep track of who will be scheduled for the smaller shifts through the months.

Thank you in advance for any help you could provide.

Not sure how much help you'll need.

Create the task
Assign the resources

View > Task Usage
Format > Time scale... set up as appropriate.
Adjust assignments as appropriate.
