Tasks using multiple resources

I am using Project 2007 and trying to schedule tasks that use more than one resource, for example a meeting that both Joe and Jim need to attend. If I make the duration one day and allocate both resources, the Resource Usage shows Jim allocated for 7.5 hours and Joe allocated for 0 hours, so Joe is scheduled for other tasks that day.

If I make the meeting for a specific date, both Jim and Joe are both allocated for 7.5 hours. Any other Constraint Type gives the above results, regardless of the Task Type applied.

Any ideas?

RE: Tasks using multiple resources

Try making the task effort driven and fixed duration


Ms project tip:

Use Autofill in MS Project

a. Complete 1st entry
b. Select cell with entry to be copied
c. Click & drag autofill handle over the lines to also contain the same information. (the autofill handle is the little black square in the bottom right hand corner of the heavy lack outline on the selected cell)
