Assigning Yourself to Existing Tasks

Your project manager might have published project information without assigning tasks to resources. Team members can assign themselves to tasks in a published project. To do this, follow these steps:

1 In the side pane of the Tasks page, click Assign Myself To An Existing Task (see Figure 23-5).

Figure 23-5. Sign up for tasks in a project. 2 In the Project box, select the project to which the task belongs.

All tasks are grouped by all published projects in which you are listed as a resource, whether or not you're assigned to any tasks.

3 Under Task Information, specify the work estimate and any comment.

4 Click Assign Me To Task.

Your new assignment is added to your Tasks list, and is also submitted to the project server. When the project manager for the selected project reviews and accepts your update, your name is added as assigned to the task in the project plan.
