Question and answer
Q: 3) Under what circumstances would you want to manually resolve conflicts?
A: You can resolve resource conflicts or overallocations by using the resource-leveling feature in Microsoft Office Project. [ Leveling works by splitting tasks or by adding delay to tasks until the resources that are assigned to those tasks are no longer overloaded. Because of these changes to the tasks, leveling can delay the finish date of some tasks and consequently also the project's finish
date. When it is leveling, Project does not change who is assigned to each task. Project levels only the work resources, generic resources, and committed resources. It does not level the material resources, cost resources, or proposed resources. TIP You can quickly find an overallocated resource in any resource view, where the names of overallocated resources are highlighted in red. Prior to leveling, you may want to set the task priorities, which are an indication of a task's importance and its availability for leveling. The priority value that you enter is a subjective value between 1 and 1000, which enables you to specify the amount of control you have over the leveling process. For example, if you don't want Project to level a particular task, set its priority level to 1000. By default, priority values are set at 500, or a medium level of control. Tasks that have lower priority are delayed or split before those that have higher priority. You can also set an entire project's availability for leveling by setting the project's priority. For example, if you are sharing resources with another project that serves as a resource pool, and if you don't want to level the tasks in one of the sharer files, then set that sharer file's priority level to 1000. ]

User: What would be the caution of adding more resources to a task to resolve resource conflicts?

Weegy: Make sure resources are compatible and available equally to avoid conflicts over adding the new resources.
