Impact on changing one project in a protfolio of projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a feature / capability in PS 2010 where I can see any impact on other projects if I make changes to one specific project.  Meaning, I have a development project with a developer assigned to it, and that developer is also slated to work the next development project immediately following the first one.

    I extend the finish date of project 1 due to whatever factors, can I see the impact on project 2's finish date as the developer can now not start that on time.

  • When opening Microsoft Project, select the option to Load Resource Workload.
    Open Project 2.  You will now see that the resource is overloaded.  Click
    on the Resource Usage view, and you will see why/where the resource is overloaded.
     Apply leveling and you will accomplish what you're looking for.
