Resource leveling will not move remaining work forward. The resource leveling command's sole function to the resolve resource overallations. If you want to move all remaining work out of the past, use the Tools > Tracking, Update Project, Reschedule uncompleted work to start after command. Do not keep changing the Project start date. Set your status date (...

If you set the Support task to a higher priority than the Development task it will first allocate 50% of Alfred's time to that task (assuming you have set Alfred's allocation to 50%) and then use any remaining capacity for other tasks. Remember that the higher then task priority number, the higher the priority as opposed to the more normal scheme where the ...

If completed work/tasks are appearing to the right of today's date, this means that you have marked as complete a task that was in the future. This is a common mistake. Unfortunately, just because you marked it as 100% complete before it was supposed to be completed does not mean that MS-Project "realises" it should now be in the past. You need to do two ...

I am assuming you have done the following: Set the % complete to 10%, and set the status date to the end of 5 days. You have then used the Update Project - Reschedule uncompleted work command to split the task and reschedule the remaining duration. In both circumstances, the finish date of the task is equal, so there really is no increase in the task ...

The Duration field cannot be customized by calculations. However, there are spare number fields (Number1 through Number10) where you could perform the calculations and copy/paste into the Duration field. If you have some skills with VBA you could automate the copy/paste process.

If you know which category ...

Finish Variance. Open up the FV column. As you progress your packages, if you have a healthy horizontal logic built in your schedule, you will accrue both favorable and unfavorable variances in your schedule network and the FV will show you in days what that variance is. Positive numbers are unfavorable.

You can alter the max units available to account for holidays for one of the team of resources. However, unlike setting non-working time, changing max units will not automatically reschedule tasks - it will just mark the resource as overallocated. You can use the Group field on the Resource Sheet view to assign a group to each individual resource, but then ...

I'm afraid you will continue to be disappointed. The Resource leveling command is not an optimization tool and will not change assignment units on the Develop task to allow the Resource to work on both simultaneously. Even with a task calendar of 4 hours per day assigned to the Support task - project is still not completely filling the gap. I can get it ...
