How to see if leveling resources has impacted your schedule?

Do you ask yourself how you can see if leveling resource has impacted your schedule? You can be certain that it will have consequences for your schedule, for instance your plan date(s) could now be scheduled later.

What to do before leveling resources?

  • We advise to set a baseline before you start leveling resources (use ‘Baseline 10’ for instance) to learn the impact to your schedule and how to optimize it further.
  • When you set the baseline, you now can add the column Finish Variance to your view, like in the image below:
