    I updated the project schedule in our template and now I cannot add a resource to a task.  Any idea why this may be happening?  Some of the tasks are milestones, but most are regular tasks.  Thoughts?

    Is this a summary task? Summary tasks cannot contain assignments, either...

     

    Regards,

    Do you still have the rights?

    The only time I have not been able to do that - did not see the resource when browsing for one to add - was because the resource was already assigned.

    I do still have rights.  I believe the other posters are correct in that it seems like it was a summary task.

    The Read-Only Start & Finish lead me to believe this is a Summary Task as Marc_Buigues points out.

    Thank you all.  It does seem as though it is/was a summary task.  Being new to Clarity there are a few pieces I'm trying to put together, but I greatly appreciate your help!

    Summary tasks and milestones can not have resources assigned to them.
