  • As you remove assigned resources from tasks, the durations for those tasks might change. If you don't want durations to change, turn off „Effort driven” scheduling for the task in the „Info” inspector („Extras” pane).
  • When you remove a resource from a task, the work assigned to the removed resource is automatically distributed among the remaining resources for tasks that are „Effort driven” and not „Fixed Work”. Otherwise, you can manually adjust the work to redistribute it among the remaining resources.
  • To change settings for „Effort driven”, „Fixed Work”, „Fixed Units” or „Fixed Duration” task, select the task you want to change, click the „Info” inspector choose the „Extras” pane and make your changes there.
