I’m using Project Professional 2016. At one point when I assigned a resource to a task it would schedule that resource to its next available date automatically. Now when I assign a resource it doesn’t respect the other task’s it has been assigned to. What do I need to do to have project respect other resources task? Also I am using a resource pool for 10 plus projects.
When a resource is assigned to a task, the dates will automatically get adjusted. Its successors will get adjusted provided they are auto-scheduled. I need few more details to help you: 1. You have mentioned about a resource. Is it the same resource or different resource? 2. What is the resource type of this resource having the issue? 3. What is the task mode of the tasks in the project plan?
Looks like you have the correct settings at the task. Is there any hard constraints (check Advanced > Constraint Type dropdown) on the task? Can you send a screenshot of the schedule that has this problem?
