Different appearance profiles for resources assigned to the same task


I need to assign a resource to a task with a 'maintain' appearance profile.  I have also created a 'Workspace' for this object which i want to assign to the same task but with a 'temporary' appearance profile and have it as a different colour and transparent.


can you advise on the best way to have multiple resources linked to one task with different appearance profiles..

    Each resource assigned to a task may use a different Appearance Profile if you wish.

    Simply change the Appearance Profile in the Quick Access toolbar before assigning the resources that should use it.

    Then change the Appearance profile again and assign the other resources

    Alternatively, you may assign all the resources to the task at once using the same Appearance Profile, then select the reources that should use the other Profile and change the assigned Appearance Profile in Task Properties>Resources>General: Appearance Profile

    I am trying to bring in an XML file for a Microsoft Project file into Synchro Scheduler. The programme is currently tracked in MSP but I want to migrate the project to Synchro. When I import the file into Synchro, it does not bring forward the Baseline Dates? Can you advise?

    MSP files attached.

    Baseline dates are not imported via XML. Baselines must be saved directly in Synchro. To create the Baseline in Synchro, do the following:

    1. Import the original baseline schedule XML

    2. Select All tasks

    3. Right click in the task list and choose Baseline Selected tasks and name the baseline

    4. In External Data window, select the imported XML and right click>Synchronise From

    5. Browse to the current schedule XML and Synchronise with default settings - this will work if the current schedule was created from the original baseline so that the Task IDs remain unchanged

    Now you will have both the baseline and current schedule in Synchro Scheduler
