Allocation Segments in scheduler

Using allocation segments:  Role X is allocated 8 hours a week for 4 weeks, then 2 hours a week for another 4 weeks (total of 40 hours over 8 weeks).  When one open this in MSP, one will see:


  • These allocation segments as a black line graph on Resource Graph as 'resource availability"
  • Assigned hours are 8 per day for 5 days in first week, for total of 40 hours (not spread, all pulled ahead by ASAP setting on task)
  • Role is over-allocated in that first week as 40 assigned hrs/week is greater than the 8 hrs/week of availability


Question 1:  Does anyone know of any setting that will allow task assignments to keep the same distribution as defined by the allocation segments?
