Figure 6-31: The Resource Usage view organizes task assignments by resource so that you can easily figure out who's doing what and when it's being done.

The Resource Usage view is also useful when you want to do the following:

♦ Check resource overallocations

♦ Examine the number of hours or the percentage of capacity at which each resource is scheduled to work

♦ View a resource's progress or costs

♦ Determine how much time a particular resource has for additional work assignments

The default table on the left side of this view is the Usage table. You can use the Table Selection button, described in the section "Changing a Table," earlier in this chapter, to switch to a different table. Similarly, you can choose either FormatODetails or FormatODetail Styles to add to or change the information that appears in the Details section. (Work is the default selection.)
