Hi All,

I have leveled my resources however they remain over allocated in some instances.  That said, I would like to know if it is possible to view the "resource usage profile", select a "time period" to display the respective activities for that resource(s), then go into the "activity details" to adjust allocated resources if applicable; however when I do this, the "activity filter" for the "time period" from the "reource usage profile" is lost when I click the "activity details" tab.  I was therefore looking for a way to keep that "time period" filter from the "resource usage profile" while I am in the "activity details" tab.  Any help on this would be much appreciated.  Thank you for your time and have a good day.

Regards,

Christian

Hi Mohammad,

Thank you for your help.  I have used your concept in principal by creating an activity code and filtering it out and it works however I would be interested in understanding your method detailed above.  Currently I have resource ID's allocated to each resource assigned however what does the Value "TL" mean?  I tried to create a filter as you mentioned above however no results were derived when I applied it.  Please let me know your thoughts when you get a chance.  Thank you for your time and have a good day.

Regards,

Christian
