Using a shared resource pool for several project plans (each plan is contained in a separate file), what is the simplest way of working out to which task a given resource is allocated on a particular day?

For example, assume you are wondering why a particular (high-priority) task is not planned to start when you think it should. One approach would be to show the Resource Usage view, scroll over to the day you think the task in question should start and notice that the resource assigned to that task is, indeed, fully allocated for the day.

At that point, it would be convenient to have a context menu entry for a cell in the Resource Usage view enabling navigation to the specific task (within a particular plan) representing the selected resource usage. Since no such CME exists, I am wondering how to accomplish the goal of determining to which task a given resource is allocated on a particular day.
