The annoyance of adding a resource to an existing project

  • Under Consideration
Currently, when adding a resource to a team in an existing project, that resource is not assigned to any tasks, regardless if under the task, assign to, select all was checked.  So when I want to assign a new or additional resource to the task, I first add him and them have to add him to every individual task, manually.  A very time consuming, error prone and annoying task.

I would suggest that if the select all was checked under the assign to pull down of a task, that every user added to the project is automatically added to that task too.

We finally upgraded to Gen 3 and I agree with Mark that this is a very time consuming and annoying process.  We have over 150 projects with more than 25 tasks on each project.  Every new hire needs access to all projects and all tasks and the process in which we have to go into each project, add a new resource and then select the individual tasks for each user is very counterintuitive.  Please please work on streamlining this process in the near future.  Thank you.
