About the Unassigned Resource

Hi readers,

This post is another very specific one, related to a strange phenomenon in Project Server reports that I wanted to dive into and solve. If you do not experience the Unassigned Resource mystery yourself, but found my blog because you are interested in Project Online (for instance) maybe these posts will be of interest to you: The book reviews, The Project Virtual Conference, The Project Corner OneDrive or the other “About posts”.

Top sessions to watch – The Project Virtual Conference

With only 6 days left till the Project virtual conference starts, here is an update about the top sessions I would look into. I made 3 separate selections because of the different tracks that you can follow.

Regardless, I hope you will join the conference and help make it an awesome event.
