Sabastian… Jigs has a lot of good suggestions to follow. I might just add a couple of points on the specific situation you describe above. As you can see, you are trying to manage down to the resource assignment, using multiple resources on multiple tasks (a many to many). This can be very difficult and time consuming, but sometimes necessary depending on the situation and level of detail you need to manage. What you are managing is assignments, not tasks, and the best way I’ve found is to use resource leveling. That is the one feature in Microsoft Project that best levels assignments across tasks. I use it a lot, but it is not something that can just be picked up and start using. There are several blogs here on the MPUG site, including a three part series that I did a while back (but a lot more that others have done as well). It’s a lot to learn, but will make managing the details you are asking about a lot easier in the long run.

Another simple option for a case by case basis is to use the task inspector (with the red over-allocation dude that comes up in the indicator column. That’s simple but not as functional. Good luck…
