Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi Rob,

when you select and remove will this not remove the resources from the other activities, it is ok if we have allocated these resources to the only block we want to remove, what if the same resources is also assigned to other set of block of activities....

never tried it but this is my querry

cheers

Select the block of activities with the resources you want to remove.

On the right hand side of the screen click on the Assign Resources Button.

In the new pop window, click on the resource you want to remove.

Now Click on the remove button (Its the one with a red x)

That should do it!
