Thank you Larry and Jigs. I think Jigs is thinking more in line of what I am contemplating… i.e. adding task rows to the timeline. In an attempt to clarify, the company handles hundreds of jobs with each job being addressed by 5 different groups of experts. Each group has a designated number of full-time staff. As an example, if a group had 10 people full-time, at 8 hours per day, the resource allocation for full-time employees would be 80 hrs/day. As soon as a daily workload was expected to exceed 80 hours then ‘contract’ workers would need to be brought in to handle the excess. These ‘top rows’ that I want to add would simply give a daily summary workload (in hours) of all the work in house or projected, so someone could quickly see the overflow needs, rather than scrolling down through the chart and analyzing all the ‘red men’ which indicate over allocation.

I’m just trying to offer a quicker way to view ‘over-allocation’ needs.

Sorry if all of this is clear as mud. 🙂

So Jigs… can you briefly explain how to add those task rows to the timeline? Thank you so much!
