Adding resources to tasks

Adding resources to a task can decrease the time that's necessary to complete the task. On the Advanced tab of the Task Information dialog box, which is shown in Figure 9-1, set the task type to Fixed Units. In this instance, adding resources to the task reduces the duration of the task. Also, remember that a check mark appears by default in the Effort driven check box of the Task Information dialog box. When you use the Effort driven option, Project reallocates the work among the assigned resources.

Figure 9-1: The Advanced tab of the Task Information dialog box controls the task type and shows whether the task is effort driven.
