Resources Allocation and Resource Usage Tracking

In the Resource Usage view, the loads and availability of resources of all types (human, material and financial) contained in the resource list are displayed. Resource view allows you to manage assignments for each of the resources so that you can efficiently distribute their usage.
Split and Recurring Tasks
The flexible task management capabilities allow you to split a task when the work for it in a project should be started, then interrupted, and finally, resumed at a later term. Creating recurring tasks helps you easily schedule project tasks that occur on a regular basis.
