Assigning cost resources to a task
Cost resources are typically used to add cost to tasks without adding work hours or task duration. A typical cost that a cost resource would be used for is travel expenses. When the cost resource is assigned to a task, the estimated cost should be entered.
Assign a cost resource to a task
- In the Resource tab, select the Gantt Chart view from the drop-down menu on the Team Planner button.
- Click the Assign Resources button to display the Assign Resources dialog box.
- Click the task that you want to make the assignment on.
- Verify that the task name is displayed within the Assign Resource dialog box.
- Type in the estimated cost for the resource on the task.
Click the Assign button.
