  2. Open Project ABC, navigate to Project Plan, select task DEF.
  3. Scroll down and go to subtab:Work, you can see Service GHI has been assigned to team member XYZ.

    Task already has a work package for this team member and service.

Cause

System does not allow multiple work packages for the same service & same employee under same project task.

In order to schedule work packages for same employee in different period, you need to edit period plan for the existing work package for the employee, rather than schedule a new work package.

Resolution

  1. Go to Project Plan, sub tab Work, select the existing work package for the employee.
  2. Click Edit Period Plans button.
  3. Select the work package, scroll down, under Period Plan for the existing work package, add row to schedule the period plan for different periods.
