Adding Resources from Your EMail Address Book

If Microsoft Project is installed on the same computer as your company's Microsoft Exchange e-mail connection, you can add resources to your project plan from the e-mail address book. To do this:

1 Click Insert, New Resource From, Address Book.

If the Choose Profile dialog box appears, click the profile name for your e-mail system. The Select Resources dialog box appears.

2 Click the resources you want and then click the Add button to add the selected resources to your project plan.

You can add all resources contained in a group or distribution list. Add the name of the group to your list, just as you would add an individual resource. When you click OK, Microsoft Project asks whether you want to expand the group to list the individual resources in the project plan.
