I have an issue with MS Project right now. We have several Gantts which we would like to see the % Allocation of a person in a separate column. In the Resource Usage view it is possible to show a field called "Remaining Availability" but that only shows in hours not % allocation. Could someone please explain how I can create a column in the Gantt or the Resource Usage view (preferably Resource Usage view) which then contains the information on the % allocation of that particular person to that project?

Thanks in advance.

There is a field called Percent Allocation, but it is a timephased field. You can display it in the timephased grid on the right of the resource usage view.
