Fixed Assignments

I have a request to have some kind of fixed assignment which stays constant throughout the project no matter what the actuals are.
Here's an example: The resource manager wants a resource assigned to a support type project for 2 hours each day and he wants that 2 hours to show every day no matter what actuals are posted against the project. Currently, if the resource does not post the 2 hours/day on his timesheet the ETC will adjust according to what has posted. The resource manager wants to keep the 2 hours/day so when he is looking at resource planning he can see that the 2 hours each day is dedicated to that specific project. We are not using allocations, just assignments. We can reduce down the availability, but the resource manager does not know why the availability is reduced, he wants to see the project(s). I know this contradicts what ETC does, is there a way to do this? Maybe not using ETC?

Thank you,
Liz Williamson
