Besides deleting one single resource from your project,
you also have the possibility of deleting multiple resources at a time.
achieve this, select multiple consecutive rows using either CTRL or
SHIFT keys on your keyboard and then click on Delete option from the
Task menu, or press on Delete key or use the Delete Resource option from the
contextual menu to delete multiple resources at a time. The IDs of the remaining resources will be automatically renumbered.
Be carefull when deleting multiple resources in your project, as it may
affect your schedule and you may run into problems such as the following:
- The resource assignments involving a resource are also
removed from the tasks in your project: deleting a resource means any
assignments you’ve made are gone as well, such that you run the risk
of orphaning tasks without anyone to perform them
- Costs could change: when you remove a resource from a task, the application deletes any actual costs associated with the resource
You can restore the multiple resources immediately after you deleted them, by using the Undo option under Task tab.
Select a group of two resources in the Resource Sheet using the SHIFT key
for multiple selection. As you can see below, the selected rows are
highlighted with blue background.
Then right click on a resource ID belonging to the multiple selection, and from the contextual menu choose Delete Resource option.
You will notice that the IDs of the below resources will be automatically renumbered.
