Resource Leveling Options – Leveling Sensitivity

By default, Microsoft Project notifies of overallocation on a day-by-day basis. Although that may be sufficient for some projects, other levels of sensitivity may be more appropriate such as week-by-week, or month-by-month.

 

In the following illustration, Bradley Beck and Wendy Wheeler are overallocated as defined by the default leveling sensitivity setting of Day by Day:
