A project's lifeblood is its resources. In this 10-video course, recorded in a Project Online Desktop Client environment, learners will discover how to add resources to projects, assign resources to tasks, use the Resource Graph, and pool and level resources. You will also explore Project's report tools and how to generate reports, from report templates to text insertion and formatting. Learners begin the course by observing how to add resources to a project, which makes calculating a project's costs much simpler. Assigning resources to tasks then follows, which can be done in multiple ways. Discover how to use the resource graph, giving you a better idea of how your resources are allocated, and then pool resources to manage resources in a project. Learn about leveling project resources, allowing you to quickly resolve any over-allocated resources; generate reports from templates; create a report, and insert text into reports. Also discover how to format text in a report, and to conclude, how to change the appearance of a report.
