In Microsoft Project I have a task with these attributes:
- Duration = 0.5 days
- Resources = Person A[100%]; Person B[100%]
- Type = Fixed Duration
- Effort driven = No (implying Level Assignments = No)
When I start Resource Leveling (with "Leveling can adjust individual assignments on a task" = No), the duration of the task will be increased because Microsoft Project schedules the assignment the following way: Person A starts to work at 08:00 and finishes at 12:00. Person B starts to work at 13:00 and finishes at 17:00.
I actually need to have the two persons working together at the same time.
How can I tell Microsoft Project to schedule the assignments of the two persons to have the same time start and finish times? (When doing automatic resource leveling.)
(Or put generally: How to automatically level resources without increases in duration of my fixed-duration multi-resource tasks?)
