Microsoft Project – using the Resource Graph

You can use the Resource Graph within Microsoft Project to show which resources are overallocated. However, if you look at it in default view, it gives misleading information about overallocations and the chart doesn’t accurately portray the overallocations.

The above picture indicates that Joe is allocated at 200% of his time on 13th and 16th June but a look at the resource usage table gives a different picture.

Right-click over the Resource Graph and a shortcut menu appears.

Select Overallocation. The graph now accurately portrays the overallocation.
