Keyword resource


Tasks that have an effort specification need to have at least one resource assigned to do the work. Use this property to define resources or groups of resources.

Resources have a global name space. All IDs must be unique within the resources of the project.

Syntax resource [<id>] <name> [{ <attributes> }]
Arguments id [ID]
An optional ID. If you ever want to reference this property, you must specify your own unique ID. If no ID is specified, one will be automatically generated. These IDs may become visible in reports, but may change at any time. You may never rely on automatically generated IDs.
name [STRING]
The name of the resource
Context properties, resource, supplement (resource)
