I am using OmniPlan for the first time. I apologize if this is a poor question, but I’m not seeing an obvious answer and haven’t found what I’m looking for in the documentation.
I’m working on a project for work, and want to provide my director an accurate timeline of how long the project will take. I started by simply making a list of tasks to complete. Then I organized several of those tasks into groups that identify a particular effort.
Most of the tasks could be completely independently with more resources assigned, but I’m currently the only person. So I found quickly that I can manually map prerequisites and dependencies between them (and for many of the tasks, this is needed).
However, most of the tasks could be completed in parallel with more people working on it; the tasks aren’t actually dependent on each other. So rather than mapping dependencies between them to ‘push out the timeline’ based on the fact that I can’t work on all the tasks at the same time, I read in the manual about resources. So; I created myself as a resource and allocated myself as a resource to all the tasks; however the timeline still isn’t compensating for the fact that I’m the only resource available and can’t work on multiple things at once.
Any idea or suggestions?
