Format Resource usage or Task usage views in Microsoft Project
The Resource usage or Task usage views in Microsoft Project are useful for displaying the work and cost information for each resource or task in your project. You can format these views to customize their appearance and show the data that is most relevant to your needs. Here are some steps to format these views:

– To change the timescale of the view, right-click on the timescale area and select Timescale. You can choose the units, labels, and intervals of the timescale, as well as the alignment and font options.
– To change the font, color, or pattern of the bars or text in the view, right-click on a bar or text and select Bar Styles. You can modify the existing styles or create new ones, and apply filters or grouping to the bars.
– To change the table that is displayed next to the view, right-click on a column header and select Table. You can choose from a list of predefined tables or create your own custom table with the fields that you want to show.
– To change the outline level of the view, use the buttons on the Format tab of the ribbon. You can show or hide summary tasks, subtasks, or assignments, and expand or collapse all levels of the outline.
– To change the layout of the view, use the options on the Layout dialog box, which you can access from the Format tab of the ribbon. You can adjust the spacing, height, and shape of the bars, as well as the link lines between them. Format Resource usage or Task usage views in Microsoft Project. Microsoft Project tutorial.
