Customizing Groups

You can group tasks, resources, or assignments that meet a set of conditions. For example, you might group tasks by their schedule variance so you can concentrate on the ones furthest behind schedule. You might group resources by their level of availability so you can assign the resources who have the most free time. You can also choose to group assignments instead of tasks or resources; for example, to see which assignments are running over budget on hours. Group headings show subtotals for the values in the numeric fields for the group. For example, you might display assignments grouped by salaried and hourly employees and contractors, so you can see the total hours of work performed by each group. When you group these elements, subtotals for the groups appear in the Task and Resource Sheet as well as in the timesheet in Usage views.

For more information about applying existing groups, see "Grouping Project Information" on page 125.
