Info

To change the text style of your Gantt bar to include resource initials rather than the full resource name:

In the Resource Sheet, make sure that all resources have initials identified for them.

It doesn't necessarily have to be their actual initials—it can be a short name, a first or last name, a nickname, or whatever you want. Click View, Gantt Chart. Click Format, Bar Styles.

In the table area of the Bar Styles dialog box, make sure the Task row is selected.

In the lower half of the dialog box, click the Text tab. By default, Resource Names appears in the Right field.

Click the Right field and then click Resource Initials (see Figure 6-15). Click OK.
