Overcoming Microsoft Project - Resource Allocation

Microsoft Project always sucks when you want to look at your team's resource loading over the project. The histogram in MS Project doesn't give a good, scaled view of the team over time.

In a lecture I was at last night Michael showed a simpl and obvious tip; he simply cut and pasted data from project's Resource Usage screen to excel and then simply created a histogram.
An obvious solution, but one I had never thought of.

    Projjex.com is a great new site that does a fabulous job of project management. It’s completely browser-based, really easy to use, and has a free version. Cool videos too - I love it!
