I have two tasks one is assigned a resource at 80% and the other is currently assigned the same resource at 5% but when the first task is complete the resource will have more time for the second task. Is it possible to change the units of the resource for the second task for when the first task ends?
absolutely! When the first task ends, simply update the assignment units on the second task to the new value and all remaining work on Task 2 for that resource will be leveled based on the new assignment units.
Emma, Are the tasks assigned to the same team member done in parallel or in sequence? If it is a sequence, you will not need to make changes in units as they don’t overlap. If it parallel tasks where one completes sooner (see this picture https://i.imgur.com/UFzrW4F.png) and you want the team member to work 100% once the first tasks is complete (in this picture it is 3rd and 4th day), then change the view to Task Usage and edit the hours per day assigned to the team member (see this picture https://i.imgur.com/SXXZUyo.png)
