Changing Resource Plan Availability When an Assignment Is Swapped

We are having trouble with the following scenario and I'm looking for some advice on how to best handle it: 1. Two (or more) users are assigned to a task for the whole duration of the task with hours divided equally among them 2. One user is no longer working on the task, but the work is still high priority and needs to be done 3. We now need to adjust the plan to show that the remaining user will be working double for the remaining duration of the task to make up for the other user. Is there a simple way to do this? The problem we have is this scenario happens quite often and the remaining user will look under-allocated in our resourcing reports as a result. Thanks in advance! James Bender Jackson/ National

Hi James, What is the Duration Type you are using on your tasks? We use 'Simple' and when you remove the 2nd resource, the planned hours are reallocated to the remaining resource. It works the way I understand you want it to work. Regards, David Cornwell
