Assigning users to tasks

One of the fundamental aspects of Hansoft Project Manager is the sharing of information, specifically the project plan. When you assign users to tasks, these tasks will immediately be visible to the assigned user  - and to the whole project team.

A quick way to assign one user to a task is to double click the field under the column Assigned to, or to select it in the Item Details window. The user you select will automatically be allocated 100% of the time in the project.

You can filter on different user groups, or find users by way of a free text search. This is very good for locating users in large teams.


Adding and removing multiple users

If you want to add or remove more users, or adjust the allocation of a user for a given task, open the "Add or remove users on selected activities" window. Do so by selecting the Add or remove users menu item in the main timeline activity list menu, by pressing Ctrl + R (Cmd + R) on the keyboard or by pressing the More.. button on the activity details window (to the right of the user drop-down).
