I'm planning a project where I want my resources to dedicate one day week each to project work. I've created a calendar for each resource which blocks out their day, so there are Tuesday only, Thursday only, and Friday only calendars. There's one resource assigned to each calendar at 100%; resource Rob is also assigned to the Friday only calendar, but at only 50%. The project is set to auto-schedule new tasks and to treat tasks as Fixed Work.
What I want to see is that the first available resource uses all his available hours, so if a task were set to 12 hours of work, the first resource (say the Tuesday one) would do 7 hours of work on it, then the Thursday resource would pick up the remaining 5, and the Friday resources would never actually be utilized.
There are two problems I'm having, illustrated by this screenshot:
1. Referring to task BRV, why are Bill and Marty never assigned during the second week? Ideally, they'd work on the task on Monday and Tuesday, leaving only a few hours on left to be done on March 13. Why is Project skipping over Bill and Marty's available days on the 2nd Tuesday and Thursday? Also, for the few hours that should be left on March 13, is there a way to tell Project "always assign Dylan to 100% of his available time before assigning anything to Rob"?
2. Referring to the CDR task, why are Bill and Marty not assigned a full 7 hours each, but Dylan is assigned to work a full 8 after them?
