    Hi,

    I have a project schedule where all of the 1st level tasks are a deliverable, and the secondary tasks for all of the deliverables is the same. For example:

    Deliverable 1
    – Perform technical review
    – Audit and re-draw images
    – Perform QA

    Deliverable 2
    – Perform technical review
    – Audit and re-draw images
    – Perform QA

    Is it possible to customize the Resource Usage view so that the activities include the Parent task and Child task descriptions, as follows for example?

    Resource Name
    Deliverable 1 Perform technical review
    Deliverable 2 Perform technical review

    Currently, the view only shows “Perform technical review”.

    I hope that my question makes sense 😉 Thanks!

    Hi Sheila. Your question is certainly valid and is very typical. There are a couple of options available. There is a field in the Resource Usage view called Task Summary Name that you can add in front of the task name. That’s probably your best easy option. Because I personally don’t like the real-estate that the extra field creates, I instead tend to include enough description on a task to make sure it is distinguishable from other tasks. Given your specific example above I would create tasks as D1-Perform technical review and D2-Perform technical review. Hope that helps…
