You can reassign activities, if needed. For example, if a resource informs you that they cannot perform a certain activity as planned.

You can also reassign activities when Dispatching Jobs.

Reassigning an activity depends on the workflow being used:

Linear workflows

You can reassign one or several activities at the same time.

To reassign an activity in a linear work-flow:

  1. Open GlobalSight
  2. Enter your Project Manager user name and password and then click Login
  3. Open My Jobs. Filter by job status or click All Jobs to view all jobs
  4. Select the job

GlobalSight informs the resource in question, but follow up with both the previous and newly-assigned resources.

  1. Open GlobalSight
