You can enter actual names of resources or you can enter generic resources. A generic resource is a title or other similar description of the resource instead of an actual name; for example, Accountant, Marketing Specialist, Sales Representative (see Figure 6-2).

Figure 6-2. Use either actual resource names or generic categories of resources to get started.

As you bring resources into the project, you can either leave the generic names or you can replace the generic names with the actual names. Whenever you change resource names in the Resource Sheet, the names are changed on any assigned tasks automatically.

Tip Apply the Entry - Work Resources table

If you're entering a significant number of work resources or if you don't expect to enter any material resources, apply the Entry - Work Resources table. This table has only those resource fields applicable to work resources.

With the Resource Sheet showing, click View, Table, More Tables. Click Entry -Resources and then click Apply.
