How to add an assignment delay in Microsoft Project
An assignment delay in Microsoft Project is the amount of time a resource is to wait before starting work on an assignment. It is calculated as the difference between the assignment start date and the task start date. For example, if a task starts on Monday and lasts for 5 days, but a resource assigned to it only works on Friday, then the assignment delay for that resource is 4 days. Assignment delays can be used to resolve resource overallocation, by staggering the start of some assignments without changing the task duration or dependencies. To enter an assignment delay in Microsoft Project, you can add the Assignment Delay field to the Task Usage or Resource Usage view and type a value in the corresponding cell for each assignment. Alternatively, you can use the Resource Information dialog box to enter an assignment delay for a selected resource on a selected task. How to add an assignment delay in Microsoft Project.
