- Create two resources 'R1' and 'R2
- Assign both resources to 'Activity 1'.
- Now select assignment 'R1'.
- Open the inspector 'Assignment: Finance > Cost'
- Enter a value for 'Base Costs'
- Repeat these steps for assignment 'R2'.
Use customized assignments multiple times
- Now select both assignments
- Use the menu to select 'Edit > Copy'.
- Select 'Activity 2'
- Select 'Edit > Paste' from the menu.
The inserted assignments include base costs as well.
Would you like to verify this?
- Select the pasted assignments of 'Activity 2' one after the other.
- Open the inspector 'Assignment: Finance > Cost' in each case.
You want to use these assignments on multiple activities?
To do this, select the corresponding activities one after the other and use 'Paste' again.
