I am using MS Project for the first time, and I am developing a Gantt chart. I have multiple parallel tasks with different length, and only 1 employee works on these tasks.
Because the working time is shared between the tasks, each of these takes take longer than their defined single-time.
I added the employee as "resource". But when I click "Match resources" (I don't know how it is called in the English version of MS Project, German "Ressourcen abgleichen"), the tasks are shown in a sequential order in the time line.
This is not what I want, because it looks like the employee would need to finish task A before starting Task B.
- "Development of feature X from April 1 till April 3." Testing of feature X" from April 3 till April 5. This us nit good because it looks like no testing is done during development at all, which is not true.
- Better: "Development" from April 1 till April 5 and "Testing" from April 1 till April 5. However, these 2 tasks should still have their single-time of 3 days in the task overview list.
