I'm currently trying to setup a meeting in ms-project with 2 resources: Alice and Bob
Alice's calendar is based on the standard calendar (working every weekday): And Bob's calendar is based on the based calendar (working every weekday except on Tuesdays):
By default, ms-project sets the tasks to "Fixed Units".
- When I assign the task to Alice only, the meeting is scheduled for Tuesday -> ok
- When I assign the task to Bob only, the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday -> ok
When I assign the task to the both of them, the duration changes to 2 days, the work remains at 16 Hrs but the task expands over Tuesday and Wednesday -> Not OK
When I change the task to a fixed duration, ms-project complains that Alice is allocated at 200% and Bob at 0%...
How can I set project up to:
- keep the duration to 1d?
- keep the work to 16 hrs?
- have ms-project reschedule the task to the first common available day (i.e. Wednesday) automatically?
Thanks in advance for your help!
