Resource Names (task field)

Data Type    Text List

Entry Type    Entered

Description    The Resource Names field lists the names of all resources assigned to a task. If the length of the list exceeds 256 characters, the list is truncated and ellipses are displayed. You can view a full list of resources assigned to a task in the Task Form or Task Usage view.

Best Uses    Add the Resource Names field to a task sheet when you want to display, filter, or edit the names of resources assigned to tasks. Enter any text in the Resource Names field to represent and identify the names of the assigned resources.

Example    You want to assign tasks to resources in the Task Sheet view. You enter the names of all resources you want to assign to the tasks, and separate each name with the list separator character, which is typically a comma.

Remarks    In a sheet view, each resource is represented by its name, followed by the number of units of the resource used by the task. The number of units is shown in brackets ([ ]). If the number of units is 100 percent, only the resource name is shown. For example, "Plumber, Electrician[300%]" indicates that one plumber and three electricians are assigned.
