Level Assignments (task field)
Data Type Yes/No
Entry Type Entered
Description The Level Assignments field indicates whether the leveling function can delay and split individual assignments (rather than the entire task) in order to resolve overallocations.
Best Uses Add the Level Assignments field to a task sheet when you want to control leveling of task assignments directly on the sheet. Click Yes in the Level Assignments field when you want leveling to be able to delay and split individual assignments within the task. Click No in the Level Assignments field when you want to keep all assignments together when leveling occurs.
Example You have six resources assigned to a task, but only one resource is causing the overallocation. Click Yes in the Level Assignments field for this task, and only the one overallocated assignment will be leveled.
Remarks The default for the Level Assignments field is Yes. However, for all recurring tasks, the default is No.
For the Level Assignments setting to take effect on selected tasks, be sure that the project settings enable assignment leveling. You can do this in the Resource Leveling dialog box.
Because leveling individual assignments can increase the duration of a task, if you've specified a task as a fixed-duration task, the Level Assignments field is set to No and is disabled.
