Replace a resource assignment

Rather than removing one resource assignment from a task and then assigning another resource, you can replace one resource with another. You might want to replace a resource to resolve over allocations, reduce costs, increase efficiency, or increase quality.

  1. Select the task to which you want to replace a resource.
  2. Point to the „Entry-Info-Inspector” Entry-Info-Inspector and select the resource you want to replace („Resource Assignments” pane).
  3. Click on the „Replace-Resource” Replace-Resource button below.
  4. In the „Replace Resource” sheet make your settings.
  5. Click on the „OK” button to replace the resource.


  • You can also replace resources by selecting the task to which you want to replace a resource and click on the „Replace-Resource” Replace-Resource mini-toolbar icon.
  • It's not to replace resources with different types. For example, you can't replace a work resource with a material resource or vice versa.
