How do you assign resources in the Team Panel?
The Team Panel is the section of Project Central that displays the allocation and availability of users in hours or percent. It is displayed when you select Resource list on the Display menu. To assign resources we will be using the drop-down menus that appear as small arrows on the page at the end of a cell. These are contextual drop-down menus that change depending on where you are within PowerSteering. This article describes how to use the Team Panel to assign resources to specific tasks.
