Work and Assignments—Schedule and Assignments View

You can perform similar tasks from here, but it is easier to see which lines on the work breakdown structure have resource assignments and what type of assignment is currently used. For definitions of the assignment types, see Resource Assignment Types Overview.
- Allocation: This icon next to a resource name means that the resource is allocated to the task above. This icon means an allocation is requested.
- Authorization: This icon next to a resource name means that the resource is authorized to the task above.
- Reserve: This icon next to a resource name means that the resource is reserved to the task above. This icon means a reserve is requested.
- Requirement: To view requirements for a task, select > Task Information, then select the Require tab. This icon next to an organizational resource name represents a requirement.
- Utilization grid or bars: Graphically display utilization information on the resource based on preference settings. Use the editable grid to create effort profiles. You can view summarized information by hovering over a utilization bar or cell in the grid.
Select for any line with a resource allocation icon to edit the allocation, substitute resources, or view more details.
